I have been thinking about this lately. After the Apple watch comes out I am planning on upgrading my iPad mini first generation. I think I prefer the iPad mini size, though I still wonder if I would like the bigger iPad air, but I think the biggest thing making me consider the iPad air is that the mini sort of seems "irrelevant" now that there are big phones and phabelts and tablets, especially mini ones, aren't as popular. Im not on the big phone bandwagon and never will be; I have a 5s and love it. Anyway, does anyone else feel this way? That the mini possibly isn't even a good buy anymore? Is the popularity of huge phones kind of phasing out small tablets like the mini?
