I'm afraid that if they want $300 for a small 4" screen they are going to want at least $400 for a mini. I've also heard the mini might be 8" instead of 7", which would make it a tad bigger than I would want for a reader. But I will definitely keep up with the news and see what Apple does actually release and how much they want for it.
I'll be personally surprised (and call it a fail on Apple's part) if they break the $300 price point, at least at entry. But yeah, I keep seeing 7.85" at the leaked size spec.
