iPad mini unboxing and hardware hands-on


Rene, I have a question, I saw the video and it seemed to me you had to open your hand (like trying hard) to hold it in one hand. Would you say that this is a comfortable device to use as a navigation device? I mean, while in car there is no problem, but walking... It is what I'd like to know.
