I don't think there will be any Ipad mini getting released..I think Apple will drop the Ipad 2 price with the old refurbished models starting at £200 and a new Ipad 2 batch with the new dock for £250. I don't think there will be any refresh of the Ipad 3 but they may say new batches will have the new dock but everything else is the same. But yes very few moan about the Ipad dimensions. Many just go for the cheap tablets as they are cheap not small. The middle market for the 7" screen is filled by the Amazon Kindle as people buy it for books. The big Ipad mini Ipod touch will be the Ipod touch 4" screen to match the Iphone 5. That's what I think..wouldn't put it past Apple?
