What would be the point in a 12" iPad? It does everything it's supposed to do perfectly well in its current format, and the additional screen size would not in my opinion add any benefit, whereas it would make the thing more unwieldy. I'd be very surprised. Didn't know Facetime was nailed on, but glad to hear it. 5MP on back sounds a bit wasted - can't see many people using an iPad as a camera (I think it would be pretty awkward to use as one), but I guess it means you can use the switch function of Facetime to show what you're looking at rather than showing your own face. Still seems an odd inclusion. iPad mini could happen - I bet Apple is considering it, depending on success of devices such as the Samsung Galaxy Tab. at between 6 and 7 inches it would be usefully bigger than the iPhone but not far off portable sized. As an eBook reader it would make a lot of sense (I just got a Kindle, which is probably similar in size to what a 6-7" iPad would be, and in my opinion it is perfectly sized as an eBook reader). As a portable video device it would be a nice compromise between smartphone size (just a fraction too small for my liking) and full sized iPad. I think it's a possibility. By no means certain but I'd say more likely by an order of magnitude than a 12" iPad.
