Question is why the hell would... moreso your saying just because u don't use a 7 inch tablet as a phone it means everyone is the same to? 7 inch is just a lil bit bigger than galaxy note 2 and people don't complain about the note being too big as a phone. Your not gonna look retarded if your at home using it as a phone since it's ur house cuz I dunno phone died? prepaid and ran out of credit? Are you also claiming that when people's phone battery run out when they are outside and traveling, shouldnt use there tablet for emergency or a quick call cause i dunno they are gonna look uncool?
and seriously toilet? pc? are they portable? can u hold them to ur ears with 1 hand?
in conclusion, not many people may use this feature on there tablet but during an emergency, you'll be thanking this technology.

Question is why the hell would you use your 7 inch table to make a phone call when there possibility of that person probably can do that with their smart phone?
Your scenerio you just mentioned it's something you just brought for the sake of arguing. If thats the case, we might as well add that "calling" feature onto my toilet. How bout my computer? Yea they need a sim card slot, so I can make phone calls out of my f in pc. How bout bout dvd player? Lets add a phone feature onto that.

The ipad's offer different, most different is the apps that are available to apple only and the user expierence. I think most important thing for testing is how fast and smooth the tablet reacts to the user. IN this case IOS smokes android, out of the ball bark in this one. I am fully aware of what mini android tablets are out there, but I much rather have the fully reliable ipad mini.
Samsung's galaxy tab is much far better than it if i pad dnt have voice calling option
Anonymous, 04 Nov 2012Unless the price of the ipad mini is 14 times the price of an android tablet, you just posted ... moreeven better, the new nexus 7 with 32gb cost the same as the old 16 gb model. Now with ipad mini, which has less ppi, less features and using very old A5 processor from ipad 2, and still costing $100 more for the 16gb model sounds like a joke to me.
the only ones that would buy this are people or girls who knows nothing about what each item has to offer for its price, and buy it for its Apple Logo.

So how is this feature retarded?

I use a headset in any case. The whole unit works fine but it is a pity Apple did not add voice to the iPad mini. It would have been a great device as opposed to more of the same.

However, when the person is talking to you, you can only hear the person through the speaker. and you have to yell into the microphone in order to talk back. Also on the other end it's not clear at all, thats why you have to yell into it. it's very retarded, and a useless feature to have. Just another bell and whistle Samsung had to add in order to "one up" on an apple product.
gisam, 04 Nov 2012No retina display.. What a joke..? Im planing to get the 16gb wi fi version , but how about battery?4400Mah

I agree with you. Although there's a massive difference in quality, the built-in phone remains an advantage for Samaung in the mini tab market, and Apple does not have this in its iPad mini. I wish this could come with a built-in phone, it would have been an amazing device!
ank, 04 Nov 2012able to make a call???nope .. u can use only data from sim

Anyways, I just tested this product today, wonderful tablet. The best mini tablet on the market in terms of quality build. These android suckers, like Samsung or Nexus, will try again in 1-2 months, to try to catch apple and make a tablet based on specs, what ever what ever. Apple is fully aware of this, nothing they can do. Stay on course apple, and don't play the competition. YOU GUYS SOLD OUT IN PRE ORDERS IN 2 DAYS FOR A REASON. YOU GUYS KNOW HOW TO BUILD PRODUCTS. GOOD WORK APPLE.
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2012I guess you are right if they produce car and sell for a price of a car. But they produce car ... moreUnless the price of the ipad mini is 14 times the price of an android tablet, you just posted the dumbest comment ever. Not even close. It's not like this product costs 600 bucks right? its 329 for the cheapest model. Even when the the nexus 7 came out it was 269.99 for a 16 gb., so I don't wat the hell you are smoking.

It will make more sense if the iPad mini had a built in phone, just like the Samsung Galaxy Tab. This is total nonsense, I can't understand what has gone with apple, they screwed up iOS 6 by removing YouTube and google maps and now this nonsense device!! RIP Steve Jobs.
Carib, 30 Oct 2012 What about Optimus Vu tablet phone ?
HD screen, millions applications, pocket friendly, bea... moreThe Vu dos not have HD display, its same resolution as ipad mini. I have seen an actual Vu and its very small and weird, utterly useless, for ex watching movies will be letterboxed with big black bars, the video will be very small.
I have Note 2, now that what i call a real xxl phone, with xxl battery backup. The Vu has way too small battery to compete with Note 2 and small tablets. Thwe Note 2 is not too wide, you can easily get your hand around it, but with Vu you will stretch your fingers too much for comfort, i guarantee you will get tired very fast from that grip.
