Some folks are giving up as much as an Ipad3 putting it up for sale when they tried and liked the mini. The main reason is the form factor. Not sure I would do that to tell the truth given the much better specs of the 3rd gen. Not sure what price their device is commanding, hopefully it was reasonable.
Everyone's eyes and needs are different of course, but I sure as heck wouldn't give up my iPad3 for a mini. I've tried various 7" tablets but about the only thing they are good for in my personal case is reading and checking email. That is why I waited until the mini was announced before deciding on the Fire HD for my reader tablet. The mini screen resolution is a big issue for me as far as reading goes. As far as apps go I much prefer the larger 9.7" screen for PDFs, magazines, office suites, and most other types of apps I use.
