Once, twice, three times a trend. The 7” screen size of mobile devices (especially with regards to tablet) is now a trend.
Google started it with their Galaxy Nexus tablet to respond to the iPad which then lead to Amazon responding with their first generation Kindle Fire which was also 7” in screen size (the latest generation Kindle Fire sports an 8.9” screen size). The point is, the 7” screen display is now for real. Don’t be surprised if the iPad mini is 7 inches big.
DSTV mobile has also joined this party with their latest Walka 7 which features a 7” screen. Initially I thought the DSTV Walka 7 was a new tablet but in actual fact it is the bigger brother to the very successful DSTV Walka.
The device carries a recommended retail price of R899 and is expected to be available at retail stores between 8 October 2012 and 14 October 2012. One thing is very clear and that is that the Walka 7” is more for indoor use than moving around with your TV (seen with the Walka).
