Yesterday, a nice little sound clip from Steve Jobs talking on a 2010 earnings call was creating some buzz (and snickers) from people around the net. Why? Because during the call, Mr. Jobs mentions why Apple would never make a 7-inch tablet. Of course, this led to discussions on how Tim Cook is running Apple into the ground, going against Steve Jobs’ wishes. Crazy stuff like that. Well, today Apple held their earnings call were Tim Cook decided to clarify on Apple’s position with 7-inch tablets. Did he backtrack? Not quite — according to him, the iPad Mini isn’t 7-inches. Duh! In your face. Take that, logic!
“(…) All comments Steve made before about 7-inch tablets…let me be clear, we would not make one of the 7-inch tablets. We don’t think they’re good products, and we would never make one. The iPad mini is not a compromised product like the 7-inch tablets. It’s in a whole different league.”
To be fair, he did mention how that little .9-inches made all the difference, making the iPad Mini’s display around 35% bigger than the Nexus 7′s, and putting their mini-pad in a class all of its own. So there you have it. Apple is never wrong. EVER.
