When it comes to evaluating the next big thing, we turn to our secret weapon: the TUAW braintrust. We put the question to you and let you have your go at it. Today's topic is the newer new iPad. You know, the small one.

All indications point to Apple's "a little more" being a 7.85-inch iPad. What's more, we think Apple is probably going to do the obvious and name it "the iPad mini" because the "new new iPad" just sounds ridiculous.

But what if Apple didn't? What if it decided against the obvious and went, well, a little more creative. What name would you support?

You tell us. Place your vote in this poll and then join in the comments with all your analysis.
