iPad mini forum?

Are there going to be separate forums for the iPad and the mini?

Just wondering really!

As of current, no. I believe somebody is going to include iPad Mini in the iPad forum description at some point.

I sure hope so!
Currently, have them together is quite confusing.

It's just two products that are pretty similar...

There is not enough difference between the iPad and iPad mini to warrant separate forums. We don't have separate forums for 13", 15" and 17" MacBook Pros.

We don't have separate forums for 21.5" and 27" iMac, 13" and 15" MBP, 11" and 13" MBA. iPad mini is an iPad, just smaller. There's no need for a separate forum.

Why would you want that, it's not confusing at all. It has the exact same apps, it's even called the same. No need for it

Yet, what would it hurt to have them seperated?

A larger forum homepage, debatable speed changes, and confusion over what is where, and how things overlap. More work for moderators who then have to keep threads in their respective forums. Mods have enough work to do to bother with separating iPad Mini threads from iPad 3rd gen threads.

iPad Forums

Can the mods add a new sub forum? I think there should be separate forums for iPad mini and iPad.

The mini doesn't need it's own sub-forum. Other than size, there isn't enough to differentiate it from its big brother. Heck the iPhone still uses one section. I can understand why the MacBooks and iPods needed their own subforum though. The mini doesn't quite need one.

Well they use different hardware, so some of the problems may be different. But I agree for the most part. Each thread is labeled as iPad Mini or iPad.

I have found myself wishing there were a separate Mini sub forum, but I don't think it's particularly necessary.

Most people post in the wrong sections anyways, so I don't think it matters if we have separate forums for each product.
