The game company’s execs have made a point to exclude their most popular titles from mobile gaming. They seem to have a strategy, although it is hard to figure out what that is.

A few years ago, rumors began to swirl that Apple was working on a smaller screened tablet. At the time, I scoffed at the possibility. Apple wouldn’t dream of making a small iPad. According to former CEO Steve Jobs, a 7-inch screen would be “dead on arrival” because no one would want it. Jobs was wrong about consumer desire and I was wrong about Apple.

As the year draws to a close, more bits of information is leaking out and it is causing me to rethink my initial opinion that an iPad “maxi” would be silly because it is nothing more than a MacBook without the keyboard.

The company quickly back out of Chandrasekher’s statement and sent him to the proverbial basement. As reported by HubSpot, it is more likely that Chandrasekher, as well as the rest of the tech world, was just trying to downplay Apple’s super fast processor chip because he was worried about how it would affect the market.
