Hi everybody, Just sharing some thoughts here about the rumoured iPad mini. iMore.com, a site who has been very reliable in the past 12 months or so regarding rumours, believes the iPad mini will cost $199 to $249. Basically, for that price you get an iPad that's almost identical to the iPad 3 (assuming it gets a retina display) that costs $499 or an iPad 2 (if it doesn't get a retina display) that costs $399. I think that if they are going to sell an iPad mini for $199, than the gap in price is too big between the iPad mini and the 9.7" $499 iPad. You'll basically get this: - $199, iPad mini - $399, iPad 2 - $499, iPad (2012) So I was wondering: is it possible that Apple will lower the price? - $199, iPad mini - $299, iPad 2 - $399, iPad (2012) Basically, what they could do is release an iPad mini with identical specs to the iPad 2. They'll tell you: here's our 7.85" iPad, if you want a bigger display you'll have to pay an extra $100. If you want the latest and greatest tech (like the retina display), you'll again have to pay another $100. Basically, I see them doing this: - $199, iPad mini (7.85") last year's iPad 2 specs - $299, iPad 2 (9.7") equal specs to iPad mini, only a bigger screen - $399, iPad 3 (9.7") newest specs And than next year: $199, iPad mini (7.85") last year's iPad 3 specs $299, iPad 3 (9.7") equal specs to iPad mini, only a bigger screen $399, iPad 4 (9.7") newest specs But is this too agressively priced? I believe Apple really wants to shut down any competitors in the tablet market and thus I believe they'll price the iPad mini at $199 to $249. However, I also find it hard to believe that they'll lower the retina display iPad to $399 (and next year even to $299). So? What do you think? VOTE!
