My wife spends three hours a day commuting to and from work by train. She'd really appreciate having a new iPad to stay caught-up with email, news and such. Wifi is now available on the trains which makes it even easier to stay connected.

sa3d977 says:

hope to win the new ipad mini

bonjoo says:

I never be a lucky person. But Ill give a try. ;)

Pastortech says:

While the price is still a bit high, it does seem to be a little more attainable, at least for my pocket book. And as far as choosing between this and a cheaper android tab, meh. I've played with androids and just don't care how much I can do with it. I'm busy and I want my tech to be "magical" as Mr. Jobs put it. Meaning I want an easy and effective experience right out of the box. I had to do way to much to set up the droid to do even half of what I was doing in iOS. An iPad Mini would be great to read off of as well!

newlyn says:

Free iPad mini,,,WOW!!!! Ever since I laid my hands on an apple gadget I become addicted to it,,,love u Steve Jobs!!

koyut says:

Still undecided whether to get this if you already have an ipad.

jnamcharg says:

These look interesting, but too expensive in general-- Before I saw the price I was thinking they might be great for my physics classroom. Not sure the district will want to pony up that much cash, maybe if I have one to show them...

Supertilt says:

Looks like a great device. Would be great for my kids. I want my iPad back!

nsbrewer12 says:

I will do my best to be an incredible ambassador of the sight. Please pick me!!!!:)

Björn says:

I thought I would not care about this Mini iPad...but I do :( ^^

jrcdpm says:

Just got my wife iPad 3 would love a mini.

sohaf says:

Well I loved the new iPad when it launched and have never regretted buying it but it always seemed a bit bulky and impossible to handle with one hand
The iPad mini is just the right size for single hand holding and I just wish that apple would have considered including telephony in it as in the galaxy tab
Anyway once again a great idevice to own and use

AdamJonjo says:

Please pick me!
i would really like a ipad.
I have always been an iMore reader and like the contests while this is the first time i am entering one!
Rene Ritchie Rocks!
The Memory is up to you (16 GB) itself is already very much for me
The Colour is also up to you!
All i want is the device. Thank u
Please Pick Me!!!

cyndy johnson says:

I would just loveeee to win one of these! I read imore everyday for all the latest and it would be great to read it on a new iPad mini!

photyograph says:

i used to think, what's the purpose of having an iPad, it's not suitable for your pocket to carry it anywhere, and still you need a help from "the real computer" to do some stuffs, then i picked an iphone. BUT, after like a couple months using iphone and some other times ipad which is my friend's, i think i need both of them! for studying, reading etc.

lxxvii says:

worth a shot! Much better than a Kindle.

beaulieuserge says:

DavieMan says:

Apple, Apple the greatest name on earth,
Why don't you send me one for Christmas,
Apple, Apple I use your devices in front of the hearth,
When the wind is cold and chilly outside at Christmas.

The fact that it doesn't have the retina display means I'll probably wait for a future version...unless I happen to win one ;^)

I love the iPad mini! So perfect to carry around in a purse and have at work. Good luck everyone!

Tony5272 says:

I believe a $249 - $279 starting price point for the iPad mini sounds about right. IMO they pricing the mini too high.

mjmillman says:

Good Morning iMore!!

It would be nice to win the mini since I never win the big stuff...HAHA.

Thanks for the contest!

jrywmk says:

Ouch, was looking forward to the ipad mini for the wife and was hoping for a lower price point! £269 is steep when compared to the Fire HD at £159 which is a good tablet, was hoping for about £199-£229. My problem now is trying to convince the wife on something cheaper as only wants it for books! An iPad mini from iMore would be amazing :D Thanks iMore.

PilotPhil81 says:

Could I get the iPad 4 instead of te mini?

Ciurlo says:

I've never had lucky with this sort of contests....hope this time will be the right one!
Thank you!!!

Would be nice to get an iPad Mini. Would give either it or my current iPad 2 to my future mother-in-law. :D

emoccio says:

Very nicely designed and made. I am more intrigued than I thought I would be with the mini. Would have been great to price it at $250-300 but still a step forward.

maussie95 says:

With this product Apple shows they have a totally lack of innovation.

blackbombo says:

iPad Mini please please gimmie


Last weekend my birthday came and went uneventful. Obviously everyone was waiting to hear about the new iPad before making a purchase for me. NOPE. I was neglected by friend and family alike. So I'm taking care of my own and begging, luck be a lady! Thanks iMore.

PatMahon says:

You probably could do without sending an iPad to Ireland but I'll support the site anyway! ;-)

bullysmoke says:

would love to have one.. by the next 2nd gen mini, it will overtake iPad sales.. mark my words

tpherson1 says:

When will the winner be announced?

cgood8 says:

I've been waiting for this release. Can't wait

v.svet says:

I would love to get one :-)


It's all about value. $329 represents huge value in screen size and build quality over any
on the smaller competing tablets from other manufacturers. Not everyone will be able to afford the product, but I think those that can will see the advantages the mini brings to the table.
Throw in the number of apps available for the mini and the scales tip dramatically.

lombardmar says:

This new iPad mini is certainly a great addition to the Apple line of tablets.

ztsweetman says:

I would love a white ipad mini!

voodoo_ca says:

Sign me up for one!
Thanks for all the great prizes!

xkevincarrx says:

My first thoughts on the iPad Mini??? I have to say I thought it was a bit ridiculous. It reminded me of the cash grabs Hollywood does with rushed sequels of good movies. (No new ideas, same thing different shape...)

After watching the official Apple video for the mini I have to say I'm sold. I was a naysayer, but man, those things are cool.

Dang it I want one!

William Heber Percy says:

I'd love to use that iPad Mini in my classroom in Japan. I hope I win!

Being a divorced father of 5 year triplets has made life expensive. Please.

blowndiffuser says:

Again awesome device released by Apple!

jvgross says:

The iPad mini looks great and I think a lot of people will be interested in this model. Since it is smaller, that means less weight to carry around which means it will be even easier to remain portable.

pchengye says:

finally, a device that is perfect to hold while reading my ebook. let it be me please.

OddlyNormalOne says:

Well if you're giving it away, then heck I'll take it!

spareshoota says:

I must say... I wasn't excited about the iPad mini before its launch but now that it's out, I WANT I WANT I WANT!!!!! So cool and so portable; it would be a great compliment to my iPhone 5!!!

jerry25 says:

Give me one pleeeeease!!!!

traveller63 says:

Add one more to the i family!


I think the new iPad mini looks great. Thin, light, portable, big screen, great cameras, same 10 hour battery life, runs all iPad apps. Love it.

Only downside for me not Retina. I can live with that.

Bring. It. On.

schartzr says:

Let's see if this thing is worth all the hype

zeagus says:

iMore FTW! The Mini looks like a fascinating product. Apple continues their strategy of conceding the ultra low end and creating a premium product just above. Well played, Cupertino!

iPhone_Therefore_iAm says:

Hey iMore folks, I was really hoping the new iPad Mini would be less expensive but, no dice. I guess I am going to have to rely on you guys to give me one for Christmas this year. Thanks for the opportunity.

migsluna83 says:

If Apple would of had the iPad mini starting at $199 with an 8GB model and 16GB at $249 it would have been a more compelling sale.
