At the price of some of them most can pick up a good second hand Ipad 2. So tell me how 7" tablets were affecting Ipad sales? The Android market is still tiny. Releasing Ipad mini won't bring new users as such. I think most will reflect on Ipad mini as a poor mans Ipad 2. The better camera means zip all on a tablet. I go with the view Apple is making a mistake. Yes it looks not bad but you can't get away from the fact it's not a full size Ipad. Apple observers will now await all the drivel like Iphone mini and a new Ipad in March. Since when did Apple start playing catch up releasing new products every 6 months? No wonder the 4th Ipad took back stage at the media event today as there was little new to tell. It now makes the Ipad 3 look like a mistake.
