    They shouldn't call it iPad Mini or iPod Max, they should have a variant of iBook or just re-use their old trademark. iBook is fitting for a 7" tablet if they ever wish to go that route. Where would the pricing fit in though?

    iPod Touch $199, $299, $399
    iBook $299, $399, ?
    iPad $499, $599, $699

    or if they bump up due to retina iPad, it could be $299, $399, $499... or just decrease the touches to $149, $199, and $249.

    What's with these rumors? Steve said he didn't want one, where is this stuff coming from?

    If it weren't for rumours, sites like iFans would cease to exist.

    I disagree. This site was made to help those that owned/where going to buy an OG iPod Touch/iPhone in '07. Rumors and the whole FP was added much more recently.

    We use many devices and applications Steve said they would never do.

    Usually when Steve says they're not going to do something, they most certainly are going to do it, it's Apples history. It's almost if he tries misleading other companies on purpose (which makes sense if you think about it). When other tablets started cropping up around the iPad that were 7 inches, guaranteed he was planning for a mid-range between the iPod and iPad.

    Parts would have leaked. They certainly did for the iPad 2 :p
