I know the iPad Mini is just a rumor but IF Apple releases an iPad Mini then I'll be first in line for one since I'd gladly trade screen size for portability. BUT, as much as I want one then I'm also not in a big rush for it. So I'm wondering if it would be better for everyone if the iPad Mini is released alongside the iPad 4. My thinking for releasing them together is this: + Announcing halfway through release cycle will have last years specs + Not every iPad Mini buyer is in it only for price so having equal specs might be good + Apple pricing across the entire product line MIGHT change due to emerging competition + iPhone/iPod Touch updates will be plenty for holiday season so forcing in a product is unecessary + Apple doesn't often release products off-schedule So what do you think? Is it better off grabbing the holidays or waiting to keep the iPad and iPad Mini on the same schedule?
