Ok I see that yet again the battle between Android and iOS has taken over. I have all the ipads since the first , an Ipod touch 4 and 5th generation , and use a Nokia lumia 900 ( 920 next) . The iOS devices are simply better to us than the Android . I stopped and thought about the ridiculous sayings that S3 "pwnds" that .... Ok for one the S3 is a freaking phone ,the other is a tablet . LEARN THE DIFFERENCE ... The ipad as a product is good and durable (own experience) ,but sometimes it`s just too damn big to carry around. Apple had a hole between the iPod and iPad so they covered it with the iPad mini. The mini would be bought more by people who are more active yet not as active as the iPod users. The iPad itself has a big usefulness of its performance. Although I have to say that I am looking forward to getting my Surface Pro. The iPad mini is worth its money , the android devices crash and burn too easily . I don`t know how big of a number of people come asking can some tablet from ASUS or Acer , Samsung and such with the android can be changed to Windows . Don`t make the mistake of buying a Android tablet. And I am saying this as a soon to be engineer ,not as consumer or from hatred for Android. Think long term not short . My iPad 1 is still everyday in my hands and there hasn`t been a day I haven't used it. I was one of the first to get an iPad in 2010.
They look kind of sweet, comparing them to a normal iPad they don't really seem that small, and with that much of a price cut it actually makes some sense to by one. I would of never even thought of buying an iPad unless they came out with this.
