I am not so sure how well 7" tablet sell in the US market. It seems to me Americans are looking for laptop replacement that 10" tablet suits the demand. I have a friend working at http://www.123move.org who has got a Samsung note 2.

It still baffles my mind that all tablet makers still limit cellular usage to data only. To me, it only makes sense that you could use a bluetooth headset for phone functions and have one truly useful device instead of lugging around multiple products. Alas, businesses seemed to be more focused on maintaining a quarterly revenue stream than providing products that make sense.

With everyone having a smart phone that's 5 inches (or almost), it's a little redundant to have a tablet too, IMHO. In the case of Apple, the phones are so small that a 7 incher might make sense...

By combining the vast library of online titles at its disposal, Amazon would be able to match the current industry leader, Apple, in the one area that Apple had a significant advantage over their other competitors—content. http://www.augustaranch-azsearchforhomes.com/

It is interesting to see the slides.The main board is so small when compared with the battery and the display. About 5 slides could have been combined into two slides.

Hi Allan, iPad Mini looks like a beautiful product and just the right size - thank you for the analysis. One item is missing, however. A phone modem (BB) is offered as an option. Who is the supplier for the phone BB and transceiver ICs? Is it Qualcomm - or somebody else - like Intel or ST-E? Many thanks in advance

I have a MacBook Air, iPad (3rd Generation), and now an iPad Mini. While their functions overlap, each has specific jobs to do for me. I'd like to get down to two devices for travel, but while I'm sorting this out, the three together weigh significantly less than the Dell notebook my company issues. As an extra bonus, each is a whole lot more pleasurable to use.....

I have the smallest Kindle which weighs 6 oz. I LOVE the size and portability - great for reading, but terrible at surfing. Thus I was waiting for the IPAD mini. But it's disappointing for 3 reasons, price, mediocre resolution, and its too heavy. Maybe in a couple of years someone will make I tablet for me - 7", 6 oz, HIRES, fair price.
