So I just saw an iPad Mini at my local Apple store and I have to say I was very impressed. I don't know if it was because it was the floor model or whatever but I absolutely did not think the screen was an issue. I was actually pleasantly surprised to see that text looked crisp and sharp. I didn't get to play with it for too long because the store was packed but some of the other things I noticed were that it's amazingly light and the size was great. I really want one now!
