What Do You Think About the iPad mini?

    Bought one yesterday but seriously considering taking it back and waiting for a future retina model. After looking at my iphone5’s screen it’s really hard to go back. Almost like going from dial-up to broadband. Love the size, weight, portability though.

    I’ve got a full size iPad (albeit a wholly redundant and out of date iPad3) and a Galaxy Note 2. 7″ doesn’t do it for me.

    Got mine on Friday, with the condensed display I can’t really see the difference between this and my iPhone 5, well not unless I nitpick anyway…
    The form factor works great for me, primarily using it for Reeder, Tweetbot, etc.

    I’m going to get the 4th gem iPad, and wait around for the mini to come out with better specs. I would have uses for both, as i would prob use the mini for work/productivity etc. and my iPad would remain as my iOS gaming platform and web surfing/reading platform. I can see it working when the Mini comes out with better specs but for now i shall wait and watch where it goes.
