How Much Would A 7-inch iPad Be?

During Apple’s fiscal fourth quarter earnings call Steve Jobs put the kibosh on a 7-inch iPad. Read Steve Jobs: 7-inch Tablets DOA. But if Apple were to make a 7-inch iPad how much would it be?

Here’s a guess: A lot less than $499 for a WiFi-only version and a lot less than $629 for a WiFi+3G version. That’s for sure.

And in this thought experiment, that makes the $600 Samsung Galaxy Tab (WiFi+3G) expensive.
