    Introduction of the iPad 4 was just dumb, 3 users will now feel screwed all over.

    The rest was great, looking forward to the iPad Mini. If college books are available then I might consider picking one up next semester.

    hahaha dise Apple iPad 3 user der ke. 6 months e oder product discontinued.

    Even iPad mini was disappointing. It should have been priced lower. Comeon all the android tablets under $300 have better screens than iPad mini.

    4 is just downright annoying, I couldn't believe it when hey announced it in 2 minutes.

    I'm happy with the Mini though, the screen is exactly what I expected it to be since they are still continuing with the iPad 2. And I'm pretty sire this was done to favor their developer base, because at this paint, whatever they make for the iPad 2 is exactly the same as the Mini as well. Having many variations will only be a step backwards towards Android tablet territory.

    yes but when people have better config at $200, why will they purchase? iPad mini was supposed to be a budget tablet for those who cant spend $500 for a tablet. $320 doesnt make a huge difference.

    and they could have easily made this with retina screen. I am sure they will do it next year. they are always lagging behind more often these times, allowing android to catch up .......

    As with anything Apple, specs are never the bigger part of their products. I'm sure the Mini will do just fine, even I might get one if iBooks has good support for College Books. Previously it was all high school and below which is why I never gave it much thought.

    $320 is a big difference if you the next jump is $500. Those who are willing to spend 500 will still get the bigger iPads, but those on the fence about $200 tablets just might consider $320 as feasible as well since the iPad ecosystem offers much more than Android's. Specs, especially at these prices, are an after thought and people will prioritize the experience offered over it.

    Android now has it's biggest chance to catch up, and I hope they do. It has trailed behind so badly that it's embarrassing.

    Since when do (majority of) apple users care about money/spec when buying apple products?

    I do not think droid tablets have much chance (at least in near future). Blown up phone apps on tablet isn't the way to go.
    The abuse of greatness is when it disjoins remorse from power.
    Please do not PM me for support. You will NOT get a reply. Post in the relevant forum section.

    $320 is a big difference if you the next jump is $500. Those who are willing to spend 500 will still get the bigger iPads, but those on the fence about $200 tablets just might consider $320 as feasible as well since the iPad ecosystem offers much more than Android's. Specs, especially at these prices, are an after thought and people will prioritize the experience offered over it.

    Android now has it's biggest chance to catch up, and I hope they do. It has trailed behind so badly that it's embarrassing.
    so you want to read books on a 162ppi display ? Even for books, they can never beat amazon's ecosystem of books. The price point is not suitable enough and they made the display quite large to be an ipad mini. They should have come up with retina display in it at this price point.

    I know iPad mini will sell well and they are well ahead in apps department, but for many people who are at budget, $320 is a step backwards. People would rather spend $180 more for a full fledge ipad with way better specs. They can even go for iPad 2 for $400.

    Android will catch up in tablet surely in long run. Few years ago, iOS had similar share in mobile phones. Now look where they are now.

    The whole idea of iPad mini was to create a budget tablet category, where Android dominates now. Those who can spend a lot will spend it on iPad 4. (thank God I didnt buy iPad 3 early this year; I would have been pissed so much now)

    Not so impressed by the mini, but the iPad 4 looks good.
    Hmm...time to save up.

    It won't be too bad, I will be holding it in a distance but obviously Retina would've been better. But if they made this Retina now, then who would buy the iPad 2? I'd say the Mini would've been superior to the 2 if they did that. Maybe next year they will go back to 2 model iPads, with both being Retina. So far their products have gone through some cycles before getting Retina-ized.

    Biggest loser is going to be Amazon since they are the ones dominant in the sub $200 segment. They do have a headstart with books, but if Education is the emphasis then it's a level playing field cause a lot of books aren't available on Kindle either. But for general books, Amazon has the lead.

    Just had a hands on with the iPad Mini. I'll summarize.

    Anyone who intends to watch movies and read on their tablet, this is the size you should be looking at. 7.0" is puny but this is just right. The Mini feels more matte than metallic in contrast to the iPhone 5, but that might be because of the long exposure of the demo unit I saw.

    It's weight it perfect just like every 7" tablets, but the biggest difference is the screen. It's not too big in a way that would cause imbalance if you use it with one hand, and not to small to "narrow" your view.

    If there aren't any Android high resolution tablets by this time next year, then the iPad Mini 2 will be the only rational choice you can make then, no matter how much of a fandroid you are. Even this Mini is great for reading and general purposes, but if you are used to high pixel density then you should wait.
