Saw one today. Too large to be truly portable, especially when you also have to carry a separate phone. Too small compared to the original. Is this going to sell? To whom?
Of course it will sell. It's the latest product by Apple.
Love my Kingle HD!
HAHA! My Kindle HD!
Sold 3 million last weekend.
OP your question is stupid. The iPad mini is targeted at the Kindle/Samsung tablet markets which have been great sellers.
Does one use an iPad Maxi on heavier flow days?
I get the argument that it's both too big (compared to a phone) and too small (compared to a regular iPad), and I'm sure many, many people won't buy one for that reason.
But, for MANY people, cost is still a huge issue. If they can save $250 and still have an iPad, especially if they are just using it for bullshit like Facebook, checking email, and surfing the internet, I totally understand why they'd buy the mini.
