    Are you excited about the new Apple iPad Mini?

    The new iPad Mini which was introduced by Apple has many features, it is lighter, thinner, smaller, longer battery life and fast wireless performance.

    Are you interested to buy it or you prefer the bigger model?

    Not really, when I upgrade my iPad 1 I will not get the mini.  I like the larger screen size and do not have a need for a smaller device, thats why I have the phone.   I dont need it for a camera which is why I have not upgraded from the first pad.  The iPad is an excellent tablet, and I dont think a smaller version will be satisfactory for my uses.  I am sure it will be very nice and if you like the feel of the kindles and other smaller tablets I am sure it will be excellent for you, but I like the larger screen for browsing and typing as well as watching videos, which tend to be the three things I use the pad the most for.

    I have an iPod Touch already, so I have something small to carry around. And I have an iPad. So, I don't feel the need for a mini.

    The price is higher than I expected.  The iPad isn't that much more expensive, and is much more useful.

      Same thing I was thinking! the Mini's price is pretty close to the iPad 2.

    I'm considering buying an iPad, but to be honest while the Mini does sound enticing, and it is smaller (and easier) to carry around, there's something about the bigger one I like. It's a bit cumbersome to carry yes, but it's much better for typing and watching videos on.
    I do have a small 7 inch Android tablet but it's very limited (I live in Barbados and it refuses to let me download apps!) so I'm definitely on the hunt for an upgrade.

    I'll just wait until the Mini comes into stores and you can play with it and see what it's like up close. That's the best bet in my opinion.

    There are important things going on in the world to get excited about,  rather than get excited over a new gadget, that is only designed to fleece the public of cash.
