I know for months and months there have been so many rumors of the foretold 'iPad Mini'. It seems like it is a definite thing.. there is a problem with it though. I was almost 100% positive it was coming in October.. that is until the iPhone 5 event. See I believe Apple no longer has a "Go-to-market strategy" to sell the iPad Mini. Here's why: The iPad Mini rumors really started coming to fruition when the Nexus 7 was so successful. With Apple having the iPad 3 (I know that's not the official name) and iPad 2 priced respectively at $499 and $399 they have the high-end tablet market well covered. So the iPad Mini would be competing with the low-end tablet market (Nexus 7, Kindle Fire, Nook, etc.) The problem now is not demand, but pricing. What could Apple price this device at? Most people were suggesting as low as $199 (yeah right) upward to $299. For the device to really sell, it needs to be a maximum of $299 for the base model. Which sounded realistic, but now the BASE 4" iPod Touch is $299. You honestly think Apple is going to sell a 7.85" iOS device at the exact same price as a 4" device? No. So if this iPad Mini came out, it would be more than $299. I doubt just $50 more either. I'd say a minimum of $100. Making it $399. Now why buy a $399 7.85" iPad when you can get the iPad 2 (9.7") for the same price, and the flagship iPad 3 for $100 over that. There is no pricing room for the iPad Mini to succeed with the iPod Touch being priced at $299. Your opinions?
