Granted, most consumer electronics companies would be ecstatic with a 15% profit margin. But Apple has never been. I wouldn’t rule out a 7″ iPad—but if it happens, I’d be surprised if it starts at less than $249.

If I had to guess (since that seems to be the game of the day) I’d say it would be exactly $249. The 8 GB iPod touch is currently $199. If Apple ships a 7-inch iPad I’d suspect the touch would get a price drop but I wouldn’t think it could be more than $50, possibly more like $30.

Or… or, maybe the iPad mini is not a mini iPad but something completely different. You ever think of that?

No? Oh.
