Just my thoughts on it too. I've got the 3rd gen. iPad and a Nexus 7 so I feel my bases are covered.

Good article. After reading this I'm pretty sure that the Mini will have the price of $399 or so, but anyway this device is going to be the iPod Touch Killer.

A no go for me at $399 to tell the truth. I rather get the Ipad2 at that price.

No Ipod touch for me either. I have better toys at lower prices although no access to Apple ecosystem obviously.

If that's true, then apple is out of touch with reality. That'd be double what the competition has on offer. I think $299 is more likely, which is already a 50% premium. Apple tends to have a 50% margin or so, and we know the kindle fire is sold at cost ($199), so extrapolating gives you the $299 figure.

Here we go. It's that time of year again. Get ready for 8 iPad mini models to choose from.

Euro prices leaked.



i suppose 8GB is still do-able if all you use is email, web and facebook.
at these prices now they'd have to have retina.

Mini iPad WiFi-only (choice of Black or White):

iPad Mini WiFi 8 GB - 249, - Euro
Mini iPad WiFi 16 GB - 349, - Euro
Mini iPad WiFi 32 GB - 449, - Euro
Mini iPad WiFi 64 GB - 549, - Euro

iPad Mini with wireless (optional Black or White):

Mini iPad WiFi + Cellular 8 GB - 349, - Euro
Mini iPad WiFi + Cellular 16 GB - 449, - Euro
Mini iPad WiFi + Cellular 32 GB - 594, - Euro
Mini iPad WiFi + Cellular 64 GB - 649, - Euro

Saw those prices posted earlier on another forum... I would probably want a 64GB... but I shan't be able to afford it, alas.

Hmm, so in pounds that would be a range of about 199-525.

I feel the same. I desperately wanted an iPad and bought one when I had a savings plan mature only to find that a lot of the time the RA and Carpal Tunnel which badly affect my hands/wrists make holding it painful after a brief period of time. So I find the Nexus 7 (or a dedicated ereader) easier to hold. Mind you my Mum totally loves the iPad so it's not money wasted.

Surprised that they don't think it will be retina density. For a 7.85" screen that works out to about 170ppi (assuming 1024x768). Seems not very competitive.

If they elongate the screen to 1200x768 (runs current iPad apps letterboxed) then that would push it closer to 200ppi. That would be a little better, and would be a better aspect ratio for video. However it is getting close to where fingertips will be too large.

The original Nook Color and original Fire are both 1024 x 600 which is 169 ppi, and both are easy to read on without eyestrain. At least for me they are. The iPad1 and iPad2 have 132 ppi, but they do cause me to have eyestrain. So somewhere between 132 ppi and 169 ppi is the resolution at which my eyestrain will go away.

If the leaked photos are accurate it looks like the Mini will have a 16 x 9 screen much like the smaller iPhone5. So if they keep the width pixel count at 768 to match the iPad2, then the dimensions would be around 1365 x 768, which would have a 200 ppi resolution. Not as good as my iPad3 with 268 ppi, but more than adequate for reading over long durations. (BTW, the Nexus 7 and Fire HD both have 216 ppi.)

Unfortunately though I think the iPad Mini looks fairly big compared to a Nexus 7, and not much smaller than my iPad3. That coupled with what will surely be a high price tag of $350 or above will make it look not too interesting to me.
