When 7-inch tablets first began emerging as competitors tried to take bites out of Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) huge slice of tablet market share, Steve Jobs decried the 7-inch tablet as an intrinsically inferior product. Is the release of the iPad Mini a flip-flop for Apple? Has Tim Cook moved against the late Steve Jobs' wishes? Or is the iPad Mini something more, emerging at a time when Apple can meet its own rigorous standards for quality in the 7-inch format? In this segment, Motley Fool analyst Eric Bleeker talks us through why Apple decided it was ready to step into the 7-inch tablet market, and why the world should be thrilled.
