I'm wondering about this because if you look at all the first gens, none of them included stuff like siri, facetime, cameras, retina display, etc. However now that all iOS devices have these features will Apple put them in the iPad mini too? or will they go with like no cameras, retina display, etc. for the 1st gen iPad mini. My personal take is that Apple will go make the "iPad Mini" up to date with the current/upcoming gen devices (iPhone 5, the new iPad, iPod touch 5th gen), etc. Apple might even be selling these at a loss for sometime, but I really think they want to 'kill off'' the smaller tablet market from Google, Amazon, etc. Imagine a 7 inch iPad with -retina display -facetime -siri -etc. for like $250. Just my crazy take on all of this. I believe IF Apple does make a 7 inch iPad, they will make it very good. No quad-core A6 processor or 8MP camera, but the specs will defiantly be good enough. Apple is going at the whole retina display and facetime in its iphone, ipad, and now Mac. Same goes with FaceTime.
