OK, I like the idea of the Mini iPad; however, I think Apple may have made a slight mis-step here. Why no HD screen? I was completely surprised that it did not have an HD screen, especially at this price point. I expected Apple to do better than lets say the Nexus 7, and Kindle Fire HD. Price: A little high compared to the competition, and it may be difficult to win over converts with the higher pricing, especially in this economy. I will go take a look at it on November 2nd, but not sure I will buy. IMHO, I appears like Apple rushed this one out just to get a foothold in the mini market.
