While it’s still a possibility that an iPad with a 7 inch screen may never make it outside of Jonny Ive’s secret industrial design compound, it doesn’t stop us from talking about every inch of the yet to be announced device on episode 62 of inThirty. Whether it’ll be called the Mini, Nano, Small, Little, Micro, or Petite, Chaim, Harry, and Justin conjecture, speculate, and postulate about how the device’ll fit into Apple’s current range of mobile products and analyze the impact of screen size on how users consume their digital diets. Want to find out the best screen size for playing Solitaire or reading the Wall Street Journal or mixing the musical score for a feature film? You better search Google for the answer because we come to no conclusions on this episode of inThirty. Oh, and less is more, sometimes.

One, two, three, four, five, five: It’s here the sixth version of the iPhone, the iPhone 5. Tim Cook, who doubled down on secrecy, took the stage at Yerba Buena and shocked the crowd by introducing a device with a design that no one outside of Apple could have even imagined – well, at least the new iPod Nano and Touch’s designs hadn’t been spoiled by tech bloggers. Chaim is unimpressed, Harry is dying to get the five digits on his right hand around an i5, and Justin admits to having a crush on Jony Ive. We talk about the iPhone 5’s upgraded speakers, its trio of mics, the elongated screen, the sapphire lens coating and its diamond polished chamfers. Damn it has nice chamfers.
