    The retina Mini fits beautifully into a pocket. The way a tablet should. Dont understand why people want a brick for a tablet. If you need something that is going to stay at home or in a bag anyway, there's a laptop for that.

    One size does not fit all.

    Many people prefer a larger tablet, just because you like the mini doesn't mean everyone else should.

    I prefer the mini but I also understand why others like the larger tablet.

    Choice is a great thing

    That won't fit in my jeans while walking around in NYC, why would you want such a large device? That's what an iPhone is for. :rolleyes:

    Exactly. Don't be so silly as to think your preference applies to everyone.

    What's the point of fitting into a pocket if I gave to pinch and zoom on every website I visit? :confused:

    Playing devil's advocate.

    Get out more, see some people, interact etc, I doubt you were saying this in 2010 when only large size was around. Some people need to get out more.


    These threads are becoming silly. Can't understand why kids are not supervised when allowed on the internet. First it was Microsoft, then samsung now fighting between same brand Air and rMini from insecure "new slaves" = Sad.

    In other news Philippine typhoon has killed many (R.I.P) but fighting over a material product is a way to boost ones ego and brag about. That's the most important thing going on in ones life.


    Some people might not want to carry around a 4.7'-6' iPhone in a years time as well as a rMini as the size is too similar have you for once gave it a thought that these people are thinking ahead while you are not?

    Most people who want a tablet to fit into their pockets also have vaginas

    To each their own man. That's why their are choices. I prefer the Air over the Mini. Why? I like the larger screen for my tablet for reading, movies, pictures, websites and the like. I have an iPhone if I want something more "pocketable".

    Or, quite frankly, don't have access to one.

    Unless it's in the form of a phone*





    Until apple releases two different sizes, then it's the best move of all time from a brilliant company.

    Who wears baggy enough clothes to put an ipad in it?

    neither iPad would fit in any of my regular (non-hipster) clothes.

    I don't usually respond to threads that are worthless, but...

    In my opinion it is much more confortable to browse the interweb and read on the couch on my ipad than MBA.

    But it is just that; an opinion.

    Crappy thread OP... crappy thread. :rolleyes:

    Hey buddy, mind your own business, capiche? Just because you seem to have a phablet fetish doesn't mean that everyone else does. To each his own and your attempt at comparing apples to pears is just plain silly.

    I can't fit my scrotum in skinny jeans, let alone an ipad.

    Then again... If I break out my hammer pants...

    Reminds me of the days of goths wearing JNCO jeans with wallet chains. Maybe that's the OP's style?

    I have no desire whatsoever to carry my iPad around in my pocket. I have an iPhone for that. The iPad does fit on the arm of my sofa very nicely though. ;)

    Seriously though. You are calling other tablets "bricks" for not fitting in a pocket, yet the pocket you are bragging about is a winter jacket. But once summer rolls back in then the Mini will be a "brick" that needs to be carried in a purse also.

    Personally, I with the Mini was slightly smaller so I can fit it in my back pocket. I had an Android 7" for a little and while I didnt love the OS, the ability to carry it in my back pocket changed everything because I always had it. But then I went back to my iPad Mini and now it stays home or in the car because I dont always want to carry an iPad purse.

    That's your opinion and what works for you.

    I'm a guy, and I don't care to put something that big in a pocket. My iPhone goes in a pocket. Any tablets go in a backpack or messenger bag of some type.

    The only reason I prefer something the size of the mini is so I feel less conscious about pulling it out and using it in public.

    And you're right, if it doesn't fit, return it. If I find that I don't like pulling the mini out and using it in public, I'll return it and get the Air as it seems to be better designed all the way around and a bigger screen is nice. I found out that I do prefer having a larger screen for general use as opposed to my girlfriends mini. My opinion, of course.

    Because my phone is almost as big as the mini. Redundant.

    For the record, I used an iPad 1 for 2 years. The Air is hardly considered a brick. Numerous reputable reviews back me up
