    Do you think apple made the iPad Mini because it's cheaper to produce than the iPad 4? :confused:

    Nexus, Kindle...there's a market for smaller tablets.

    It's probably one of the reasons; they wanted a smaller, less expensive device to compete with the smaller, less expensive competitive tablets.

    The iPad mini is their lowest-margin iOS device these days, so they didn't make it so that they could make money hand over fist (although they are).

    I think they are actually not making "as much" off each iPad Mini sold, so I doubt they are making them because its cheaper than a fullsize. So I agree, it is due to competing in the market for smaller tabs.
