Steve Jobs drops knowledge on earnings call: calls out Google and RIM, says 7-inch tablets are 'DOA' (Update: complete Jobs audio!) -- Engadget This is assuming that people are buying smartphones AND tablets. Cost In places where mobile data services haven't developed or where the cost of smartphones is just too much in terms of cost, a 7" MID/PMP is the perfect companion tool. Function Android works great with a 7" screen. The interface is identical to the screen 3 times smaller. Unless the same person who owns a smartphone has to suddenly develop a hemorrhage in his finger and make it swell more than 3 times in diameter, chances are that it's actually easier to use the 7" tablet over the 3.5" smartphone. 7" is not only the right size for large pockets, it also just fits in one hand, and can actually be held in one hand. A larger form factor combined with the added weight forces a user to use the device with two hands. This is especially problematic with people who want to use their tablets on the go, standing up or walking. This is where Android can excel. Thoughts?
