If the Playbook hardware goes to 10 inch, there's no way I would be able to put it in my pocket, or carry it without having my fingers/hands hurt.
7 inches is the perfect size. It feels good to be mobile.

It doesn't matter if it's 7 or 10 in unless any tablet has got a proper keyboard and mouse it will only ever be a toy.
This is why man invented Bluetooth :-)
Whether PlayBook or iPad, with a physical keyboard / mouse combo via Bluetooth you can do a great deal with these devices regardless of size. No, you can't do everything, but you can certainly do a lot.

for a traveller, its the right size at 7
for those that yearn for a bigger screen, there is a HDMI output you can use with a monitor or TV then pair it up with a BT keyboard n mouse.
Maybe a larger screen would be nice for veiwing some things like a RDP session, but for now there is only one size and hopefully RIM will make a bigger one for those that desire it.

This goes back to the statement someone mentioned earlier, as to how one uses the PB. 10" screens have been around for a while. I have a 10" piece of equipment and also a laptop, what I have found is that I use the PB much more easily when traveling or dynamic business meetings without carrying a laptop shoulder bag or saying "I will check when I get back to the office".
Are there still times that I need to use the laptop? Yes, but few and far between for my business. The size is just right because when i pull it out people don't believe that I can provide a quality answer or presentation from something i just pulled out of my suit jacket pocket. The 10" is nice, but i cannot remember an instance where the PB screen did not satisfy presentation needs. I think it comes down to what works for the individual...(now if RIM would just integrate the phone and give me an ear piece that hides in the ear to take and recieve calls)
