Mini-iPad: More Portable?

Adam Radosavljevic/Shutterstock.com

Although the iPad is touted as a mobile device, studies show most people only use it at home. But the smaller tablet Apple reportedly has in the works could change that.

The company’s Asian suppliers are preparing to produce a new Apple tablet with a screen considerably smaller than the iPad’s 9.7-inch display, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. Though Steve Jobs, the company’s late CEO, opposed a smaller iPad, analysts say the trimmed-down device could help Apple compete with smaller tablets like the Samsung Galaxy, which is marketed with the tagline “now that’s portable.”

The iPad may be far lighter and portable than a laptop,  but surveys suggest it’s still too bulky for many customers to carry with them at all times. Some 62% of iPad owners leave their iPads at home, according to a study of 15,000 iPad owners by the research firm McKinsey & Company. Just 4% of consumers said they take the tablets to run errands and 5% report bringing them to meetings or class, according to a 2011 Nielsen survey of 12,000 tablet owners. “Finding that sweet spot blending portability and usability is what everybody’s searching for,” says Michael Holt, analyst at Morningstar.

Given Apple’s tablet dominance, one way competitors have tried to stand out is with devices somewhere between the size of an iPhone and an iPad. Google’s  Nexus 7, Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire e-reader, which weighs 0.9 pounds. But some doubt whether any mini-tablets can challenge the iPad’s 70% market share, including a mini-iPad. “They’re still not small enough to be portable and not big enough to create that great user experience,” says Yung Trang, president of TechBargains.com.

Size isn’t the only issue why people leave their iPad at home, however. With a starting price of $499, the iPad is an expensive device to lose, break – or have snatched from you on the subway, Holt says. The Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire cost $199, while the Galaxy Tab 2 and Barnes and Noble’s Nook Tablet both start at $250. A mini-iPad will be significantly cheaper, but experts say it’s unlikely to match the low-end of the $199-$250 price tags for other e-readers and mini-tablets. “Apple never tries to be the low-cost guy,” Holt says.

Smartphones are also getting bigger and more closely resembling mini-tablets. As SmartMoney.com reported, consumers may ultimately end up buying a hybrid smartphone and tablet. The latest offering from Samsung – the Galaxy SIII – has a 4.8-inch screen, nearly 40% bigger than the 3.5-inch screen of the iPhone 4S. Trang says smartphones – not tablets – remain truly mobile: “Unlike a smartphone, a mini-tablet doesn’t fit in your pocket.”

      New Mobile Phone

    • I use a Kindle Fire for accessing the net while outside the home (newspaper reading, news blogs, etc), it’s portable and compact. For heavier use like hotels or at home I have a Toshiba Ultrabook (0.6″ thick, about 2.4 lb) which is a full function Windows 7 computer (substitute MacBook Air if you are Apple fan). I cannot understand this craze for the iPad, its too clunky to be able to be used as a real computer. Goes to show how Apple has been able to create sycophants that will buy anything as long as it is Apple. Wake up people and untether yourself from whatever Apple wants to shove down your throat.

    • Funny, the genius of Steve Jobs is nothing but figuring out how dumb his customers are – a bunch of i-watch people willing to pay big money to trade an input capable of laptop for an input crippled i-pad. Yes, the laptop people have a chance to be a creator, a producer, even an active information users of internet and what an i-pad user can be? With crippled ability of data input such as keyboard, i-pad user is reduced to an internet watcher – an equivalent of TV watcher of the past. What a shame!
