Thought it would be fun to run a poll on this.

Voted for "I believe it is for real, and I want one". An iPad with smaller screen would be perfect thing for me: lighter, smaller (of course) that will much easier to hold while I'm reading news & books.

I am interested by the idea of a smaller tablet, though I'm not going to buy one now. I just got a new iPad and I love it. But when it's time to get a new one, I will certainly consider the smaller size. I carry my iPad everywhere with me, and while at home the larger screen is very comfortable, on the road it would be nice to have a smaller one. But then it would be a bit small for some web sites and for painting. Choices, choices.

I think I would get one just for reading, if the price is OK. I find the new ipad just beautiful but for reading... nope. For everything else, great. If the price is too high, I'll be going android for reading.

I guess Jobs was not a fan of styluses but at some point I think Apple will want to add more expressive 'digitizing' than is currently possible (like Samsung Note 'S pen' etc.). I could see that working really well for this iPad, and it would set it apart from the other 7" tablets.

I think its for real, but I have the new ipad (3) so I am fine for a while.
I have to admit I do like the size of the original ipad for surfing and general reading.
I am sure you could get used to a smaller size (ipad mini) but I think it only suit those who do a lot of moving/travelling. Sure the ipad is a little heavy (??) and is bigger than the mini but that has advantages too (better screen, bigger display so easuer to read, navigate)
its 50/50 and I am sure the mini won't be half the price, I am sure there won't be a huge difference in price! (the mini won't be cheap)

But good on Apple for making it, I am sure it will suit some people ....... but I won't be one of them

*If* the price is reasonably placed between ipod and ipad, I'll probably get one, and do away with my iPad 3. I want to believe its coming, I hear enough rumours that it is, so by the end of the month, I guess we will know for sure. Its something I wont pre-order, but I will be looking to go hands on to see if its right for me. 7.85" could be a good compromise between the 7" androids and my current ipad.

Agreed. Love my iPad and regular Kindle but I want something smaller and in color for reading and such. It will be either the Mini. The Nexus 7 or a Kindle HD.

I think Apple would not be Apple if they didn't do something with this that was more than just shrinking iPad3.

Yes, it is real. The amount of leaks is more than enough proof for me. Apart of the iPhone 5, there hasn't been as many leaks for any Apple product before, and usually they come true for much less.

No, I don't want one. The 9,7" model is perfect for PDF's, and I want an eBook for reading normal books.
