BTW it's a christmas gift for my daughter. She's only 8, but me/wife/son all have iphones, am I going overboard getting her a mini? She doesn't have an iphone, but she loves the ipad and her friend has a ipod touch. She wants to be able to play games/facetime, etc. I'd get her the 16 gb white wifi model. Also, should i preorder now or wait til it gets to best buy (i have an account). I wonder if I'm going overboard for an 8 year old, or would a nexus 7 suffice.
