iPad Could Be Big by Being Small

If Apple wants to rule the tablet universe completely unchallenged for years to come, a smaller unit is just the thing needed, IDC believes. A smaller iPad  would give Apple a majority share for four more years, the research house believes, despite low-cost Androids and fuller-featured Win 8 tablets that can act as actual PCs.

Smaller iPads have two things going for them: They would presumably be cheaper (but with Apple you never know) and they'd be smaller.

If they ever do one, and if they really are cheaper, I may just have to get my debit card out and buy one, along with a stronger pair of reading glasses! I still can't browse on the iPad without magnification.
