RE: iPad Mini Rumours

I suspect the Nexus etc only kept the border for battery space.

Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of a 7-inch tablet? Will it be possible to grasp the iPad mini with one hand? I'm never going to buy a 7-inch tablet again. Too small for me, even if it's wider.

 

So the theory goes, the border that the Galaxy 7 + Nexus has, is not necessary all the way round on a seven inch tab.  The border is designed for holding, but if you can hold it one handed, you don't need it all the way round.  The border is only needed top and bottom for holding landscape.

I disagree, the device can be held upside down, therefore the border should be equal on all sides.

Sorry, I don't understand what you mean by upside down. When upside down (home button on the top) the iPad auto rights itself, and you can still hold it one handed.  The only time you can't hold it one handed is in landscape, so you need the thicker borders for landscape mode.
