iPad Mini: Will it flop?

  1. Yes, miserably

    5.8%
  2. It will sell as "well" as an Apple TV (i.e., a hobby)

    9.6%
  3. No, it will sell like good hotcakes!

    84.6%

    It's clear that in terms of innovation, it's a ZERO.

    In terms of product positioning, the example of schizophrenia (between a retina iPod Touch and a much-higher-specced iPad).

    In terms of pricing, nothing to write home about.

    So YES, I predict that it will flop in due course.

    I doubt it.

    It's cheaper than the iPad 2 in a sexier format and attached to the unbeatable iOS tablet ecosystem.

    It's going to sell by the millions.

    No way this thing flops. It will sell like hotcakes as it has a great entry level price (in comparison to the full size iPad), great design, and it carries the Apple logo.

    All that said, I have no idea how it will sell compared to what the analysts think it should, so they could sell a truckload of them and still come up short of expectations, which could cause it to be looked upon as a flop in some people eyes.

    I however don't think that will be the case. I think they will sell just about every single one they can produce and ship in time through the Christmas holidays.

    its going to sell like wildfire. The average person doesn't know what a nexus 7 is but everyone knows what an ipad is. once the ads start running its curtains.

    I'm not trying to start anything, but I really don't understand why every time apple releases a new product, the first thing anyone complains about is it not being innovative. What exactly is innovative about all the android tablets? They are all plastic and essentially all the same, just with a different name on them. How is that innovation? Again, I don't want to start anything, but that argument just makes no sense.

    It will flop just like the iPod, iPhone and original iPad did.

    I've used an N7 for about 3 months - looking forward to comparing. Wasn't impressed by the N7....the Kindle's UI/OS is ridiculous (and I don't want to have to root my device to make it run a certain OS to my liking) and I have no reason to enter the Nook/B&N ecosystem.

    The iPad mini will be a wild success, will out perform the iPad 2 in benchmarks and will work just as well - if not better - than the N7 and other 7" tablets DESPITE its lack of "specs".
