You may see more 8-inch tablets because of the competition in the 7-inch space

While you can find tablets with displays in a variety of sizes, the general pattern is for devices to either be 7-inches or around 10-inches. The major outlier is the Apple iPad mini at 7.9-inches, but it looks like there may be a lot more competition in that space around 8-inches because manufacturers want to avoid the surfeit of options in the 7-inch space...

8" inch is just right. not too small but large enough for reading and easy to carry also. While we move from 7" - 8". GPad should prevail if the price is right. :)

I was going to say exactly that. Also, price for g pad 8.3 is $300 for the 16gb. Not bad for Snapdragon 600, 2gb of ram and 1920x1200 resolution. I'm very excited.

But i think $100 more for just 1 inch bigger is a little high!! I think 8-inch tablets are still a little expensive!

This is due to Phablets coming to near 6.3"/6.4" which is very near to 7" and also they are very portable than 7 inchers. 8"-8.5" is a sweet spot IMO.
