Ipad Mini

Using the iPad mini as a phone

Last week I left home and headed to the airport, on my way to Macworld|iWorld 2013. My flight was delayed thanks to freezing rain, so I sat at the airport in Montreal for a couple hours, finally made it to Toronto, and then got smacked with another 8 hour delay. With my iPhone 5 at 20% and dropping, thanks to the poor quality Rogers reception at Pearson, I reached for one of the several Lightning cables I'd packed for my trip... only to find not a single one. I'd left them all at home.

Of course, neither the iStore (airport electronics shop) nor the Best Buy vending machines had Lightning cables. I was stuck. I needed my iPhone for when I landed in San Francisco, so I had to conserve as much power as I could. But I also needed a phone to use while I was at the airport all day.

So I reached for my iPad mini.

Moshi shows off Versacover for iPad mini at Macworld|iWorld 2013

Unlike CES 2013, when you hit the show floor at Macworld|iWorld 2013, you didn't feel like iPhone and iPad cases were flying at you like the armory scene in the Matrix. The sanity was refreshing. It allowed us to better see and appreciate what was there, including gems like the Moshi Versacover, originally for the big boy iPad, and now newly remodeled for the iPad mini.

iPad accounted for 1 in 6 PC shipments in Q4 2012

One in six personal computers (PCs) shipped in Q4 of 2012 was an iPad. That's according to Canalys, who also reported that worldwide PC shipments were up 12% over the same quarter in 2011, with 134 million PCs sold. Canalys counts tablets in the PC category, and those devices made up one third of all PC sales in Q4. In total, Apple shipped 27 million units, with HP in second at 15 million PCs shipped. Canalys attributes Apple’s tablet growth to strong demand for the iPad mini:

Logitech announces Ultrathin Keyboard for the iPad Mini

Meet the Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard mini, the little brother to the same keyboard/case combo we've enjoyed on the full-size iPad.

The Ultrathin Keyboard uses the same magnetic setup as a Smart Cover when serving as a case, providing a pretty significant shell over the iPad's display. Flip it over and slide the iPad into the groove and it becomes a Bluetooth keyboard. Obviously this one will be smaller than the full-size version, so we'll just have to see how much the difference cramps our style (and our typing). Logitech expects the Ultrathin Keyboard Mini to be available in the U.S. and Europe sometime this month. It'll retail for $79.99.

Tim Cook says Apple still doesn't care if they cannibalize their own products

In response to a question asked during Apple's Q1 2013 conference call, Tim Cook once again re-iterated Apple's long-held belief that they'd rather cannibalize their own existing product lines with new product lines than risk a competitor eating into their business. The only twist to the repartee this time was the iPad mini, and what if any affect it might have had on full-sized iPad sales.

Would you want an iPad 5 that looks and feels just like an iPad mini?

If Apple can produce an iPad 5 with Retina display, 10-hours of battery life, and make it anywhere close to as light and thin for its 9.7-inch size as the iPad mini is at 7.9, would you want them to? Would an iPad 5 that looks and feels like an iPad mini be your next iPad?

Apple reportedly halting iPad retina displays production at Sharp

Last weekend it was iPhone 5 displays, now it's iPad 4 displays, and just as before, we have a sensational headline attributed to a couple of anonymous sources, with only the most superficial context and analysis provided far, far below in the body. This time, according to Reuters, production of iPad 4 displays at Sharp is being kept at levels only sufficient to keep the line running. However:

Never mind iPhone 6 and iPads next, in 2013 it's all about iOS 7 and iCloud

There'll be an iPhone 5s and iPhone 6. There'll be a Retina iPad mini. There'll be a thinner, lighter iPad 5. There'll be an Apple A7 system-on-a-chip. There'll be an LTE radio that can do simultaneous voice and data, and eventually voice over LTE. There may be curved displays, biometric sensors and security, 4K AirPlay, onboard voice parsing, in-air gesture and face recognition, and much, much more. Apple's hardware will continue to tick tock its way towards the future, but for mainstream users, most of the time, the devices we hold in our hands today are more than good enough. And it's the stuff inside and around them that's become far, far more important.
