July 20, 2012 •

10-inch Tablets are Preferred Over 7-inch
This week, we posed a question to everyone on Facebook about what they think is the ideal size for a tablet. We used two popular dimensions, the 7- and 10-inch tablets. A majority of you, almost two-thirds, said they prefer a 10-inch tablet. Looks like we have some iPad lovers out there!

Tablet Size Poll ResultsMore Real Estate Is Better
Of course,this is all personal preference, but we were curious about what you thought. We did have some interesting comments on Facebook.

  • Bud told us, “more real-estate is always better.”
  • Ryan said, “actually the ideal size for me was somewhere in the middle 8.9.”
  • Terryl said, “10 for sure. 7 is like a big smart phone not really the right size for a tablet.”

The Tablet Wars
The iPad is, of course, the most popular 10-inch tablet (9.7 to be exact). The Microsoft Surface tablet, which was unveiled in June, has a 10.6-inch screen. Other 10-inch tablets include the Asus Transformer Pad and the Verizon Motorola Xoom. Popular 7-inch tablets include the Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 and the recently released Google Nexus 7.

Apple has dominated the tablet market, but with the recent hype around the Nexus 7 and Microsoft Surface, it’s hard to say how this will affect the market for Apple, Amazon and others.
