Size Matters or Size Doesn't matter
Its interesting that the talk of 7" tablets and particularly the talk that Apple should/may/could make a 7" ipad, is to reduce the size of the screen for portability.
Whilst in another corner of the room, smartphones are increasing their size as if being pumped full of steroids.
So with one breath its "lets make em smaller" and the other its "make em bigger - bigger is much better"
I do carry my phone with me the majority of the time, becuase it fits in my pocket. I don't carry my tablet about much, not because of the size but because I don't need to. When and if I do, its not a huge ask to carry this about - hey what are Netto and Aldi carrier bags going to be used for?
