Great job & well done apple but honestly the price is hinderous for toady's markert in majority user concern. cheers
It's disappointing that the device has an Apple A5 processor which is Genaration old. An A5x or A6 would have been better. But it's good to see a 5mp full HD rear and a 720p front camera. And the less pricy models are only wifi. So, if you are outside us then you won't be too happy.
I hope not because Steve Jobs was died apple now became a company with lack of innovation and a company with money and business oriented..

Another Apple article with a ton of Apple-obsessed Android fanboys. Always gives me a good chuckle.

If you must get a tablet get the Surface Pro coming out in January. Just don't get an Android tablet. iPad has better support and the Surface Pro should be just like a Windows8 laptop.
I did not expect Apple to pull such a cheap, misleading comparison between their new iPad mini and the Nexus 7. Phil Schiller compared the mini's 7.9" display to the 7" display of the Nexus 7 conveniently forgetting the screen resolution. The Nexus 7 has a 1280-by-800 (~216 ppi) while the iPad mini as only a 1024-by-768 (~163 ppi). So actually the Nexus displays more content and things will be crisper and sharper.
Well it is a nice trick that Apple has used to mislead the not-so-tech-savvy people into buying the iPad mini which certainly doesn't match the Nexus 7, be it screen size or even specs like CPU, GPU and RAM where again the Nexus 7 scores better.
Sad to see apple do such a thing. The people that applaud to anything and everything that is said in the keynote are so unaware of anything outside the Apple world that they don't know that there are nicer things outside that sphere. Again Apple has done things the way it always does, v1 is always crap but Apple successfully manages to lure people into thinking how cool it is.
This raises doubts about the credibility of the statistics they present about their app downloads, units sold, PC vs Mac growth rate etc. Hope Apple mends it's ways.
Be real guys! I know you have money and you are a fan of apple, samsung etc but I think it will be better if before you get any gadget to get feedbacks first because the first few buyers will just going to be a somewhat tester team, just like with iP5, which has chipping, battery iMap issues, so get feedback first before you buy any thing. And that will also save you money. Friendly reminder! "It fun to have a smart phone but be a smart buyer as well!"
AnonD-59657, 24 Oct 2012This is another great innovation from Apple.
I believe Apple Mini iPad 7.9" will set the... moreI think it will definitely start a new trend of small tablet.
Currently, those small tablets are not making any big headlines.
But when Apple come along, I am sure the industry and manurfacturers of small tablets will all start to notice this market.
And we start the copycat game again!
The same typical messages from haters (underwhelming, disappointing, lousy features, no this, no that) and yet, iPad mini will still sell well to both fanboys, non fanboys, schools and corporate sales.
Apple still win big time with record breaking quarter again!
Can I use mini Ipad as a pc computer for school and work ? What should I buy SURFACE or IPAD / mini IPAD ? 'Cause I dont want to spend a lot of money just to search internet and play some kids' games. I want to do all of that + school +work. Any advice ?
nice, but at least they make the ram 1gig, good presentation by apple, its what apple does best..
TORNADO, 24 Oct 2012if u dont care for screen or CPU what do u care about the 512 Ram lool really funny !!!!!since iOS is a well managed organize mobile OS you don't need a 2GB RAM for it to make your apps work well with others. This is based on my experience using both and developing platforms android and ios.
