"Apple's Secrets Revealed at Trial"

Apple's Secrets Revealed at Trial, article, Wall Street Journal.  Interesting peeks behind Apple's iron walls.

On Friday, Scott Forstall, a senior vice president who oversees the software used on the company's mobile devices, testified that as early as January 2011, an Apple executive advocated that the company build a tablet with a 7-inch screen. Apple has generally disputed the appeal of devices smaller than its 9.7-inch iPad, despite reports the company is developing a smaller model.
In cross-examination, Mr. Forstall said Eddy Cue, now head of Apple's Internet services efforts, had used a 7-inch Samsung tablet for a time, and sent an email to Chief Executive Tim Cook that he believed "there will be a 7-inch market and we should do one."

Interesting. I don't think they would have any reason to say this in court, unless there is a smaller iPad on the way.
