Like this, but smaller…but bigger than an iPhone. 

There are still rumors about the smaller iPad in development. Supposedly, the device has a 7-inch screen and will have two cameras a la iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4G (For FaceTime). If true, the device will launch sometime in 2011.

This comes from Rodman & Renshaw analyst Ashok Kumar. We aren't entirely sure what analysts go by, other than speculation based on current market conditions and what makes "business sense," but whether or not rumors like these are true, we just don't see how useful an iPad that sits somewhere in size between an iPhone and the current iPad can be. This time, it's to compete with Samsung's Galaxy Tablet.

This isn't the first time we hear rumors like these.
