Apple has already made a 7″ iPad, but that doesn’t mean it’s going to manufacture and sell it.Jim Dalrymple at The Loop reports Apple made a 7″ iPad right along side its 9.7″ iPad.

For some reason Steve Jobs decided bigger was better, and the 7″ iPad was shelved.

Apple could release a 7″ iPad if it wanted, but Dalrymple reasons, “The iPad is the one of the best selling devices in history. Why would Apple need to release a smaller version to compete in a market it owns. It doesn’t.”
