    This is going to be close! Am gonna vote once I see, hold and use the other one. You can vote or decide now! :D

    iP5 is jaw-droppingly sexy but for some reason am more excited with the iPad mini despite it's so called weaknesses.

    I have to go with the iPad mini on this one based off the reviews. The reviewers were saying how awful a smaller iPad would be and now they are singing praises despite the less than retina display screen.

    The iPhone 5 is too similar to the iPhone 4 and 4s, so to me it isn't that compelling. The iPad Mini is a totally new device and takes tablets to a new place in thinness.

    I voted on this poll, but then realized how the heck can we make this determination without fondling the Mini first? :)

    Of all time... how about for the next 12 months. I would have to say.... iPhone 5 wins out because its a higher end product. Better screen, better processor and better Camera.

    Finding an electronic device sexy is a fetish, not healthy though.

    I haven't held an iPad mini yet, so it may eventually get my vote, but until then, I have to vote for an option not on your poll.

    The Original iPhone is still my most favorite Apple gadget of all time (pending my obscene groping of the iPad Mini tomorrow). If you want sexy, you can't go wrong with a curvy aluminum chassis.

    iPad mini.

    The 5 is sexy but the mini is sexier than the 5 IMO...

    So, differences make it the same?

    Let's see... ipad mini is smaller, lighter, non-retina same old hardware as two generations ago... totally new device
    iPhone5 is thinner, lighter, larger screen, better hardware... too similar to i4/s

    smh

    iPhone 5 was a big disappointment for me. It's essentially an iPhone 4S XL.
    The iPad mini is a pretty cool little device despite the hardware that's in it. I've been quite content with my bastard iPad (the 3rd gen one) but the allure of the mini is there. Being smaller, lighter and thinner is pretty cool but the lack of a retina screen is a complete deal breaker for me. Once the mini gets up to better specs then I might just get that instead of a regular sized iPad.

    Wrong! iP5 is the supermodel (taller) with perfect slim fit body. :p
