Really wishing Apple would come through with a black-and-gold version. As it stands I'll be getting a space-gray Mini.

That color scheme would rock, but since I missed out in my gold 5S...I'm getting a gold mini. +1

Maybe a black back plate, but the chamfered edge and metal ring around the Touch ID are gold. Very small accents, but it would give it a very nice appeal without looking gaudy. The leaked iPad mini's gold color looked a bit deeper and more rich than that of the 5S, I don't really like that, so it's either silver or space grey for me. I'm leaning towards the silver because Apple hasn't really done a great job of anodizing aluminum in the past and the color would chip off (at least for the first batches).

Close how? If by close you mean because the iPad far exceeds, then yeah. Not close to them at all.

Exactly. Until Android gets more tablet app optimization, the iPad is king. It's all about the experience.

I'm kind of pumped about this one. The iPad 4 was kind of a cop out...too much like the iPad 3 than a newer version. Personally, I'm more existed about an iPad mini with Retina Display than the iPad 5.

I think the only question is retina iPad mini. And if so what price? If not it would look embarrassing to release the same resolution mini.

They usually keep the same price point for new iPads. If I remember correctly, when the iPad 3 came out it was the same price as the iPad 2 was, despite the Retina display. I expect them to keep the same pattern with the mini.

I might get the new iPad mini for my wife if she likes it. I have a nexus 7 2013 and love it.

My eyes on that new iPad Mini. Guaranteed a pre-order from me if its packing an A7 and higher resolution display! :) Also as a side note, thanks Apple for announcing the day before my birthday ^_^ last year they did it on the day hehe.

Is the iPad 5 going to be more expensive than its predecessor? I certainly hope not! :(
