Win a free iPad mini from iMore!



I am privileged to be given the opportunity to win such a marvelous device by iMore. THANK YOU.

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.

I want one lol. It would look pretty sweet next to the rest of my tech. Hope I win. Thanks a mill imore.

Love the podcast. I'd like to replace my 4th gen iPod touch with an iPad mini now that I have an Android phone, but it's kind of pricey.

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!

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

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...

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

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!!!

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!

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.

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 ;^)

Perfect size, perfect price tag and on that IOS, I want one and if i dont won here I will get one my self.................

Well it would be wonderful to win this. I think I would use it as a small textbook, 7 inches and light + slim would make it ideal for that job.

I would be much more likely to use the iPad mini than the original size, so I would love to win this!

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

iPad Mini is the best 7" tablet forever.
Thanks Apple. And thanks iMore for Contest win an iPad Mini

Good Morning iMore!!

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

Thanks for the contest!

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.

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

The mini looks really interesting. Let's see how it fares against the Surface, Kindle HD, and the Nexus 7. Choice is good!

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

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.

In America the new iPad mini and nearly every product is soo cheap.
Only 329$ and in Europe 329€ ... every American can be happy about it.
iMac 1299$ in Europe 1349€ ...
Enjoy it...

My wife is threatening my life if I buy yet one more Apple product - so you guys can save me buy drawing my name for the iPad mini. 'Cause I just gotta have one!

I love my iPad 2 like I love my car.... if not more.
I am fascinated by technology and people's creativity; their ability to think outside the box. And now the iPad Mini. Good luck to everyone!

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.

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.

I don't care about the price if I get one free :-D The significant other has put a freeze on my gadget spending :-/

I would REALLY love a new iPad mini! True apple fan girl right here :) P.S. Love this website, especially the forums. So much good info shared!

Hey iMore,

I would love to have this new product! its so convenient and portable. I can use it to play my favorite games and i can use the brand new features on iOS 6. I would also love to take photos on my iPad Mini and show it off to friends and family!

I would love to win a new ipad mini. I have a 2nd generation ipod touch and I've long since outgrown it. Also, it will no longer update so I'm limited on what I can download.

My didn't Apple surprise. Ipad mini, Mac book Pro 13 ", New IMacs, Mac Mini. Wow. No MAC Pro though. Maybe next yeah. oh and yea the biggest one was the Revamp of the IPAD 3 to a 4th generation. Wow, Wow, wow.

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!

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.

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!!!

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.

It is awesome that you have this giveaway worldwide. All the other times I have seen promos like this it has been US only. Way to go iMore!

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!

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.

This looks exciting! I would love to win this for my wife, who is a high school math teacher.
Thanks for putting together these contests!

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.

please please please choose meee, i have an iPad 2 and owning an iPad mini would be just perfect!! i like the design a lot especially the black n slate model. Goergousss
