- So, the expected iPad Mini ………
Right, my youngest has decided he wants an iPad mini [if it does actually exist] for his birthday, sight unseen …. I know, I know
so tell me, apart from camping out at an Apple store like an excited teenage girl waiting for a Justin Bieber show, do they generally make stuff available for online orders/pre-orders straight away after announcing it?Posted 7 years agojambalayaMember
I’m sure they will allow pre-order once it’s announced, that’s been their normal mode of operation.
If I were you I’d wait for the announcement and then make a model/cost comparison between the mini / iPad2 and iPad3. If the mini is well priced it will make sense, Apple have a juggling act as it’s in direct competition with lower priced devices but demand will be very strong.Posted 7 years ago

The conversation regarding waiting, comparing and evaluating has been had and done to death, 16 yr olds simply don’t see it like I do 😀

decided he wants an iPad mini
is this not an ipod touch?
I assume that Apple have re-defined the “inch”? Apparently, seven of the standard inches are too small for an iPad.
And as Apple have never admitted to the existence of a smaller iPad, any sizes quoted have been purely media speculation. As many smaller pads have a 7″ screen, analysts and bloggers have been saying the ‘iPad Mini’ will be 7″, while others who are a bit more savvy have said it’ll be 7.85″, which makes more sense, as that’s close to the size of a paperback book page.Posted 7 years ago
This smaller Pad makes more sense for youngsters, and it’ll be a great thing to use with OS maps, using Viewranger or UK Map. I can see it being incorporated into car entertainment and navigation systems too, a dash mount with CoPilot or TomTom installed would be really nifty.CountZeroMemberPosted 7 years ago
