The current base price for the iPad is $500, which is the WiFi-only model with 16 GB of on-board, non-expandable storage. Expanding the iPad with a 7-inch slate would help the mobile tablet family not only target more users interested in the smaller form factor, but could also help Apple offer the smaller tablet model for a lower price to be competitive.
