I just personally don't like the size of the mini. I already have an iPhone and an iPad, why do I need a new tablet that fits awkwardly in between?

The Mini doesn't supplement the iPad, it replaces it.

I finally got play with one. I liked it. Thought it was a good size. Was going to buy one, but BB made me wait 15 mins to get one from the back and I got tired of waiting so I left. I had gone in for a Kindle anyhow.

I'm glad some people find the mini so loveable because it's resulted in one person gifting me their old ipad 2.

I think the blogosphere rumors about new ones coming in March are wrong. Of course Apple is working on the next generation, but people think there is an accelerated refresh cycle and I think it just isn't so. The 4th gen iPad was released earlier than expected for a good reason: To bring all of the product refreshes closer together. Apple wants to introduce the latest iOS first with iPhone, and then release refreshed iPod/iPad models shortly after with the latest iOS and similar parts.

I bought one for my wife, its just awesome. Just perfect size, you can watch and work on that thing anywhere with no hassle. Even laying in bed . Its screen is clear and while its not as good as the retina it is pretty damn good none the less. I think overall the mini is the best tablet on the market.

I got to hold it and try out for the first time today and I must say I like the size and how ridiculously light it is. It did feel almost like a toy compared to the iPad where I did feel the weight difference. I couldn't directly compare them side by side by I couldn't really see much of a difference between the two.
