iPad mini event - by the numbers

cmarkell says:

Rumors say the low end version of the iPad mini will be $329. Isn't that a bit high when considering the competion for similar products? What are you thoughts?

AaryanF says:

NOOOO! The 8GB/WiFi-only model will be tagged around $249 and 64GB around $649...More details about 16 different versions are here

F.mendoza says:

But this isn't a "similar product" ...this is an iPad!

The build quality and ecosystem alone is worth the small premium. I think people will be willing to shell out the extra 130 bucks, just like the iPod line, do you want a $160 Sansa MP3 player(just an example, I don't know how much they cost, but you get the gist), or a $299 iPod? I think it'll do just fine.(excellent, even)

orlandohramos says:

I'll love to have a more portable ipad, that way i can carry it everywhere

Mashud says:

Ipad is the best tablet i have ever used and ipad mini is another good step as it will be more portable.Em waiting 4 this.

Archie Mcguire says:

Could you please let me win please, Iv'e looked all over the internet but there all to expensive and I cant afford it!
So please let me win.
Thank you.

heyjerz says:

$329 is just ugly: $329, $399, $499 starting price line up. $299, $399, $499 would have been much prettier.

Plus, still leaves room for Android tablets.

I'm sure they'll still sell like gangbusters, but it won't wipe out the low end Android market.

Travelin'Rich says:

I partially agree - The price points are in fact ugly to compete in the 7" tablet market. I can't image these will sell like gangbusters except to people who have to have everything Apple. Before I get slammed, I own an iPhone 5, iPhone 4, iPad (original) and iPod (4th gen). I'm not interested in the iPad Mini. If I don't want to lug around a notebook computer I'll take my netbook. If I don't need the netbook I'll take my iPad. If for some reason the iPad is too big I'll take my 7" Lenovo tablet. The iPad Mini seems to be in it's own size class. A class I don't see being useful. Possibly just me though.

FlopTech says:

Why? Because of the 35% bigger screen.
And 10 hour battery life.
You know, because droid users love specs.

ShadowReaperX33 says:

I am privileged to be given the opportunity to win such a marvelous device by iMore. I'd like to thank them and wish you all the best of luck. Rock on!

SDTRMG says:

Glad to try and win a idevice, love my iPod

saulleibow says:

I would never second guess Apple...but I really believe they missed an incredible opportunity of REAL tablet dominance by pricing the Mini so high. At this price I think people will choose between the iPad or the Mini. At $199-$249 I could see iPad owners adding the Mini to their stable as a dedicated reader and the possibility of some buyers actually buying both this Holiday season. As usual time will tell

cmarkell says:

I think Apple missed the opportunity not only to dominate the market, but to wipe the floor with their competition. A starting price of $329 is too high. $249 would have been the sweet spot.

anniyan428 says:

I have been looking for a smaller, but still effective iPad for school, reading papers, etc. I would love to win the iPad mini!

shagrath5 says:

It doesn't seem like Apple have any serious competition in mobile market, both in terms of quality/ease of use and smart marketing. That's why price shouldn't really be an issue.

FRoStYisGoD says:

would love to win one!!! that be amazing!

fdduran says:

I'd be certainly willing to get one for free.

Ozy says:

O, wouldn't it be lovely.

darktanone says:

I think it's more like the competition is prized too low. Amazon selling its tablets at or below cost and Google selling theirs at cost would make the iPad mini price seem high, but I think it's priced competitively to make a profit. After all, that's what companies in the hardware business do. Wait for next year when the new model is introduced and Apple drops the price on this model to, let's say, $239. How long can the competition continue their current pricing with Apple nipping at their heels?

DanielSw88 says:

No, it's NOT high, as it ISN'T competing with 7" tablets. It's essentially an 8" iPad with the same number of pixels as an iPad 2. This means, as Apple says, that it delivers the full iPad user experience. So, since it's an iPad, then it's a LESS expensive iPad.

JMike50 says:

hmm...don't think it's too high given that it starts with 16gb, same processor and RAM as the iPad 3 and it is an Apple product. The only drawback I see is no retina display but then again on a display this small I don't know if it would matter.

GoGo1010 says:

I thought so too given that the other manufacturers are looking to bring the p
rice down. Apple does not seem to feel the need to compete in the entry level area.

jharo says:

I gotta have an iPad mini!!!

antheauxny says:

I love that you guys give so much away! *prays I win it* a white one please! ;)

F.mendoza says:

White's nice, But hopefully it'll come in other colors!

derekjdech says:

The white one looks AMAZING! I would love to win this!

Jonezed7 says:

Would love to give it to my girlfriend who's in nursing school! It would be perfect.

melvster says:

thanks for another generous contest - i'd love an ipad mini!

JDanat84 says:

My girlfriend says I can't buy one because I only have 2 hands and I can't hold all my apple products as is... Maybe, just maybe if I won one, I wouldn't have to buy one and we'll all be happy!

I know I would.

Me Please!

linuxdaemon says:

I have always thought the 7"(ish) form factor is the right size for a tablet. I have used Android devices and the Playbook, so I am looking forward to seeing Apple's entry to this space.

tail24 says:

dfine1966 says:

I am glad this is a Treat, not a Trick. This is just like coming home when I was a kid on Halloween in looking through the pillow case for all the candy. Thanks iMore.

DaHui623 says:

I see the 7-8" form factor as a media consumption device, not quite as productive as the full sized iPad. So the enormity of the iOS ecosystem and tablet specific apps would make the iPad mini the best small tablet on the market. Count me in!

mmartins94 says:

Time to win myself an iPad mini!

voldak says:

I'm hoping to get an iPad Mini if the price is right. I'd like to get a tablet. Hopefully this will priced competitively.
