    With iPad Mini all but confirmed with the loop saying 'yep', let's speculate on the entry price of the ipad mini with a poll.

    Nobody thinks it will be priced at $399 and replace the iPad 2?

    Im thinking the iPad 4 will drop to $399 starting price so $299 for the mini. (I also don't think they're going to cripple the mini. It's positioning should be to take e holidays with better than an iPad 3 specs followed by iPad 4 leapfrogging it in March)

    I'm all for a price of $449

    My APPL stock has dropped, so it time for Apple to increase prices.

    I agree mostly:
    iPad Mini
    16GB - $299
    32GB - $399

    iPad 3.1 (the new new iPad)
    16GB - $499
    32GB - $599
    64GB - $699

    So, is the consensus that the iPad Mini would be priced at the same price point as the iPod Touch 5G?

    I'm looking at buying my three sons the new Touch for Christmas. If the iPad Mini is priced the same and is comparable on specs (cameras, storage, CPU), I'll have to look into it.

    I said $349. $299 would be nice, $399 would surprise me.

    Assuming 8GB, 1GB RAM, 7" screen, ~9 hours battery life, etc. it should be priced at $199 to compete with the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire.

    Apple would be insane to price the iPad mini at $449. I know Apple overprices things, but that's ridiculous.

    Accurate but I think the mini @ 32GB would be about $349.

    8GB @ $199 would be the best.

    That does sound right to me as well. For only $50 more than the competition you get the real thing so the choice becomes getting a Kindle Fire and rooting it so it comes out from under the crippling Amazon software load or getting an iPad with its ability to run a quarter million iPad apps. There is a walled garden that is much more restrictive than iOS and it's the Amazon Kindle.

    The only down side to not owning an actual Kindle is you lose the ability to read "free loaner" books that come with Amazon Prime. I think this helps sell Kindles so perhaps Apple will decide to "sweeten" the iPad mini deal with some sort of content loan capability presumably something with iBooks. Perhaps a Pandora-like book service with an annual subscription that allows a certain number of books to be read in a year. Then you'll see Kindle Fire sales fall like a rock.

    I dont think the ipad 4 will have 32 gb as its lowest model. heck they had 8 gb models in their ipod models forever. I just dont see them offer more gb for a lower price. its not what they have done in the past.

    Although like most I have no basis in facts, I see most of these suggested pricing having a real impact on the iTouch. I can't see being able to sell a touch at the same price as a Mini. I think a great deal of the 10 million they want to sell by the holiday season (again only based on rumors) wouldn't know Retina display from a SD tv. Those people see small device and bigger device.

    So maybe the touch goes down in price and the Mini replaces its price points.

    Has anybody seen this one?


    It's a screenshot from the internal systems of a big German electronics retailer. Sounds pretty good to me...

    I would guess the following:

    8GB iPad Mini - 199/249$
    16GB iPad Mini - 249/299$
    32GB iPad Mini - 349/299$

    Those are the prices I'd guess.

    re: http://www.engadget.com/2012/10/14/apple-ipad-mini-price-models/

    I''m shocked that there will be an 8GB iPad mini. However I'm mollified to see that there will be cellular versions so it's a wash. I still would not get less than a 16 GB mini with cellular. I think I'll stay with the higher storage for my iPad3
    The existence of an 8Gb version at $250 would be pretty conclusive that it will be non retina and an A5 (second gen)

    If those German prices are in Euro, I believe them. 249 euro is about 299 USD

    "It", meaning the base model? No.

    However, it wouldn't be at all surprising to see higher capacity options at or around the $400 mark.

    Not really.

    Regardless of specs on paper, those are more laggy than an iPad 2. They also don't have nearly the same amount of tablet-specific apps and the materials / build quality / design aren't on par with an Apple product. There's also the fact that a 4:3 7.85" tablet is significantly bigger than a 16:9 7" tablet.

    Even if the stuff I just listed wasn't true Apple could get away with selling a ****ton more at a higher price, given their current mindshare, ecosystem and the fact that a lot of casual users don't even care about specs.

    I vote $299.

    I would like to see it at $249 (or even $199), but knowing Apple, it'll be $299.
