Does the iPad mini have the best size of small tablets?

I find the iPad mini size to be perfect. 7.85" inches or 7.9" is not too big and not too small. 7 inch tablets are too skinny and too wide. 8.9" is getting into full size category.

4:3 aspect ratio is also the best decision Apple has done for the iPad. Sure, it has black bars for video, but it's perfect for everything else. 16:10 is mostly perfect for video, but nothing else...
