So, it's finally here, eh? The iPad mini is announced and almost all the recent leaks and rumors we heard of have been confirmed. The iPad mini is a small and beautiful tablet, with a 7.9" display, aluminum casing and support for all the 275,000 tablet-optimized apps on the App Store...

unfortunately, if it came down to an iPad Mini or a Nexus 7, Samsung Galaxy Tab, Surface 8...yadda yadda yadda i would have to go with iPad Mini or Surface 8. those two options seem to have better build quality. BUT i'll say this...i took the Bing Challenge online & it seems that i prefer Google as a search engine over Bing. hmm...ironic.

Screw you Amazon.
Bought my first generation kindle fire and a year later you've dropped support of all us good kindle fire owners. Were the reason 7inch tablets are succeding. Because we all bought your tablet. We put of with its sluggish performance for you and when we want new features, your response is "then upgrade".
Next time, I'm buying a Nexus tablet.
Screw you,
Kindle Fire owner soon to be Nexus 7 owner.

A friend of mind is selling his 32 Gb iPad 3 just to get the iPad Mini. Hilarious!

As much as I think the Nexus 7 is the better product, I think iPad Mini will be one of Apple's best seller and possibly the leader in the 7' tablets. Due to:
- iPad Mini being the Cheapest iPad ever! though seems overpriced, at $329 its a reasonable price for an entry level tablet. Especially for an Apple tablet.
- People who initially want to buy the retina iPad might decide buying iPad mini instead.
- Not that many country selling the Nexus 7 nor Kindle Fire. The iMini might going head to head with Samsung's 7" Tabs tho.
- I also think the iPad Mini will consume some of the iPod Touch potential buyers.
