PCWorld's Daniel Ionescu recently found a chart posted on Twitter that indicates Apple's smaller iPad would not have the same aspect ratio as the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7, but one that's more like the iPad. If true, the iPad Mini's display would be as tall as the current iPad's width, given reports from Bloomberg and The Wall Street Journal indicating the size of the display will be between 7 and 8 inches.

He pointed out that John Gruber calculated that in order to maintain the same aspect ratio as the big iPad, the smaller tablet would have a 7.85-inch screen diagonally, with a resolution of 1024 by 768 pixels. This would mean the smaller iPad would have almost 40 percent more screen territory than 7-inch tablets like the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire.
