Be logical, the sales were only high because Apple is too expensive for people to afford it in the usual days. The "Black Friday Top Performer" is not an award, it just tells us that which product was too expensive for people to buy it on normal days, not wait for one specific day in the whole year.

Threw Cyanogen boot option on there as well. The new iPad mini would be a more comfortable size, but not at current prices.

Keeping notes (that I can handwrite), setting reminders, doing shopping lists, managing my expenses, setting appointments, checking and answering emails. On top of that I can have my favorite music and some good books. Or read something interesting on the internet. And all that in a small device that I can easily carry with me wherever I go. Try using a PC like an agenda and you'll see the point I'm trying to make. You simply cannot be with your laptop wherever you go, it's not practical.

There are millions and millions of tablets out there doing nothing but collecting dust, and millions more of tablet owners forcing themselves to use those things because "i been told this is supposed to be good". Too bad only a few of us have the balls to stand up and tell the truth, that we regret wasting money on tablets.

Android product = Go to a restaurant and they serve you tons of bland food & choices, you think its worth it as it seems alot.

Apple product = Go to a restaurant and they serve you tasty food with only a few selection, and you think its worth it because its tasty.

Either way, you get filled, but one leaves bad taste in your mouth at the expanse of more cash in your wallet..

This sale is the best of both worlds!

Because my Z1 feels premium...
I deal with iphones 3G - 5s every day and i dont get what premium feel you are talking about
BUT that is my OPINION
Most Apple users I know are moving to Android but others are to set in thier ways
Apple need to make a NEW phone and Drop the I products
