I agree with you on all points. I understand the pressure to compete with Samsung, but I think both Samsung and Apple would be headed in the wrong direction if they made tablets bigger than they already are.

re: Apple Tinkers With Larger iPhones, iPads
The larger iPhone certainly makes sense given the response from consumers to larger-screened Android devices. For the reasons stated in the article, the iPad wouldn't seem to make as much sense. Perhaps the most viable use case for a larger iPad would be if it was part of a "transformer" type of option for a MacBook, where the device is really a MacBook, but with a removal screen that then doubles as an iPad when needed.
