Ive been stoked about the iPad mini to come out for a while now. searching the internet for specs and all that. but just recently ive went to the store to check out some other 7" tablets to kind of get an idea as to the size (keeping in mind the mini is said to be slightly less than 8") and now i seem torn as to whether it will be big enough. i would probably primarily use it to check social networking stuff, as an e-reader, and some web browsing her and there. My mother has an ipad and i always thougt that it seemed just slightly large and awkward to hold. i guess im just wondering what other people think. this would be my first tablet so im trying to make sure i get something im gonna like in the long-run.
