Steve Jobs drops knowledge on earnings call: calls out Google and RIM, says 7-inch tablets are 'DOA' (Update: complete Jobs audio!) -- Engadget as much as i hate to admit it...... But seriously the 10" tablet is such a better idea/deal then a tablet that is less than 3 inches bigger than your phone. For 3 more inches you gain SO much. I am not really sure why all the new android tablets are 7". but i really hope someone steps up and starts building real tablets not 7" phones or mp3 players.. just silly to me.
