moiz.saeed1997 says:

Omg I would love an iPad Mini!!

blindemboss says:

Yes, please send me one. :-)

leemoon9 says:

iPad mini , looks awesome the size , the screen display and iSight camera , but why A5 I still wonder !!

gnforpeace says:

Would love to win an iPad Mini! Thanks for the chance (at least it's better odds than the lottery)!

candrikanich says:

iPad mini looks compelling (as an iPad 3rd gen owner). At $199 I would have bought 1 for every family member. $329 means I will probably just get one for my wife.

eric_tall says:

Still not sure about the price. $279/289 would have been more reasonable for the "outdated" specs (outdates in terms of Apple products).

maverick.taurean says:

ipad mini is a refined smaller version of ipad2. Now apple selling refurbished ipad3, at lower price than ipad2, could make ipad2 a history

gcardona says:

Even thou it has a premium price, much higher than the expected $249 sweet spot. The iPad mini is worth every penny, the whole ecosystem already in place would back up the investment. The only downside was Apple missing the opportunity to wipe out the whole tablet market. Looking forward to get my hands on one, maybe the iMore giveaway !!!!

meimaj says:

I'd love to have an iPad Mini!


I will be happy to get one iPad Mini

valapsp says:

iPad mini you'll be mine. :)

KathrinGalloway1231 says:

This looks like a great device. Any idea when it will be available in 4G LTE?

chasem says:

I'll put my name in the hat. Been looking forward to the mini; I've always thought the ipad was a little too big, personally.

fatt133 says:

The Writing Maven says:

dragonlady5th says:

My daughter would love one of these for school!

doubleb5 says:

I need to win this ipad so my wife can stop borrowing my ipad 1 to play farmville.


geek36 says:

i need that ipad mini so bad


dlemor says:

Actually useful? Who knows, but I want one anyways.

misplacedhatred says:

In agreement with some of the comments, a $329 price point is pretty steep. So steep I wouldn't mind a free one.. Hint Hint. It seems like a decent little device, but at $329 why not get an iPad 2 while they're still out.

r5murphy says:

I'd like to win the new iPad Mini. Thanks

martinsiry says:

WooT! iPad Mini...would be great to study for class on that

Kiarash2014 says:

CaFe88 says:

pbatton54 says:

cyberian451 says:

Because my girlfriend will never sleep with me again unless I get her one ! ;-)

ghost07 says:

I am super excited for the mini!

Ipheuria says:

I would love to get an iPad Mini. Although I have an 3rd gen iPad my wife borrows it all the time. When I told her about the iPad Mini she was thrilled to bits because she finds the iPad too big and heavy. What a mamby pamby baby suck *looks around nervously* lol anyway yeah I would love to win this for her.

Anique says:


curveball23 says:

Please choose me! I've got to have the new IPad Mini.....for my kids of course!

NamelessStar says:

ooo would be kind of cool to replace my ipod and play games on a bigger screen

dbeddie15 says:

Yes please. Would fit in my white coat pocket, which the current iPad can't do. But the only way I'm getting it is if it's free, because $329 is WAY too expensive.

budweiser45 says:

iPad mini will be $329 woow, that is a bit high, since i paid $800 for ipad2 32GB with 3G connection.
Now if i win one, i could give it to my wife, so she won't bug me for mine :>))

MickBiel says:

The iPad mini looks like it's going to be another great product from Apple. iMore does a great job of covering all things Apple. It's my go to site for Apple news.

/Mike Biel

maximopp says:

I hope to win this time.

justinnava says:

I agree with many people below, I think $299 (or even better $249) would have been a better starting price point for the iPad mini. But Apple seems to know what people will pay for their stuff. I think they don't want to target the Android-leaning audience with price, but rather by showing off their specs more. But this is only my thoughts, and I only express them for a chance to win an iPad mini :)

wickedrad79 says:

I've been reluctant to finally take the plunge for an iPad. I am considering it much more now that the mini is an option.

SMT says:

This looks like a perfect for my wife!

techkmr says:

The most important consideration is that the iPad mini is truly light and comfortable in the hand or wallet. i love iPad mini so much..tks

cam130894 says:

Glad to try and win a idevice, love my iPod

theitguy3 says:

gil8484 says:

I am really curious to see how the Ipad mini sells.

cccammm25 says:

Would really love to win one for my kid. Thanks imore for this great opportunities.

rbf1337 says:

Do want. I've never liked 10" tablets.

anny31 says:

im just trying to figure out if it has an LED flash for pictures? i want to get the itouch 5 for this reason. if the mini has one im getting that instead. anyone know? i tried to look at frustrating
thanx for the chance!

no1tech says:

gmonday says:

I would love to win a mini IPad. I'm not sure if I would buy one. I have two Kindles - the Original Kindle Fire and the 2nd generation Kindle.

jxc says:

i will need a belt clip for the mini

KDorsey12 says:

I'm a little confused on Apple's approach on this. i can understand that they want to have a tablet in this market can get what they can out of it. That's cool, but the price point that they're coming in at is too much i think and need to be lower.

Mbellfire says:

i think this device will do very well!

CSANTANA136 says:

Great giveaway! Good luck everyone!

sibebabe says:

I'm excited for the new mini. Can't wait to see one!

stsk says:

I've been waiting for yonks for the ipad to be shrunk down to this size and I think its the perfect size to bring around. Specs-wise its not too bad, save for the lack of retina display and a Ipad3 processor (late the ipad4 get the faster processor but nicer if the mini gets the slightly older one rather than a old ipad2 processor).
That being said, may i have an ipad mini for Christmas? :)

rodeb says:

iPad Mini from iMore hope iWin! Thanks

metstang says:

This would be great for my daughter.

stein0726 says:

I would love to win an iPad mini from iMore!

jb7881 says:

Yes, please! Thanks iMore!!!

xtaffcb says:

I think that $329 for the base 16GB with wi-fi is a little much considering that the Nexus 7 is priced at $250 for same amount and will soon phase out the 16GB in favor of 32GB for $250! Although I can say that as with all Apple products the build quality will be second to none. You certainly pay to be in the "ecosystem". The sad part is I still want one!

guedees says:

Y U NO GIMME THAT? srsly, i never win these stuffs :(

Quarks_ says:

iPad mini, in black to go with my iPhone 5 and mini to go with my Mac mini. Thanks iMore!

I wanted to enter the contest for the new iPad mini.

shawnarsen10 says:

I'd like to win the Ipad Mini. I just moved to Iphone from Blackberry, and, I have to say, I find the iphone superior already. So, it would be nice to replace my Blackberry Playbook with the Ipad as well.

kritikal says:

Would love to have one!

Mauj says:

Ok so if I'll get an iPad mini I'll be having a big speech. And it goes here:
Dear iMore,
It is a dream come true, because I always wanted an iPad mini since it was launched but I knew I wouldn't be getting it myself because I'm not earning. But I made thousands of bucks using iPad mini and its applications to take my life professionally. I would like to thanks iMore, and my legs because without them both I wouldn't be standing here and making a winning speech. You guys can stop clapping now, hardcore fans these days.
I would also like to thank my mom for giving birth to me, so I could win this iPad mini from iMore and have a turning point in my life. *cries of happiness*.
Thank you thank you thank you........thaaaaaank youuuu iMore. <3

Raylene_A says:

An ipad mini is everything you need in the palm of your hand from fast wireless internet,HD video,thin and light not forgetting 10hour battery life,that's note even half of what its about! Now that's what you call an iPad mini.! Having to test all the features of an iPad mini will top it all! IMore and iPad all the way!!

peteeaston says:

The new iPad Mini look great!

themarblery says:

Great contest. Would love to win one of these!
Thanks iMore!

tyler2010us says:

Oh, how wonder it would be to have this iPad Mini! Thanks iMore!

bmerkin says:

I'd love to win a new iPad mini! Sometimes I don't feel comfortable carrying around my MacBook or my 2nd generation iPad - too big. This would be perfect for keeping up with my reading. I'm in!

agent006 says:

I like this little marvel, it's a child of an iPad 2 and an iPad 3. I want one.

Laura Knotek says:

The iPad Mini looks like an awesome device! I'd love to have one, since the compact size would be perfect for use on the go.

Thanks for your consideration in the contest, iMore and Rene. :)

Fred Hatton says:

Very happy I found this site. Keep up the great work.

smileymimi says:

fingers crossed I can win this for my boyfriend's xmas pressie!

rustie says:

Thanks for the opportunity to try and win an iPad Mini. This looks very interesting as I love my iPhone 4. I think the iPhone is very efficient and much better than my Blackberry. However, I do think the starting price of $329 is a bit steep. I wished it started at $250-$275. But it annoys me that in March they'll probably have an iPad Mini II. Just my 2 cents.

anghislandi says:

I want a ipad mini for reading !!! Very nice live Coverage !!!

Laura Davila says:

I would like to win the iPad Mini. Thank you iMore for the opportunity to participate in the contest

disneypincart says:

I bought a 3rd Generation iPad when they were first released, and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that they introduced the 4th Generation iPad at the iPad Mini event. I now definitely feel like my iPad 3 is obsolete. Maybe I shouldn't, but I would love to win an iPad Mini!

Thanks for the chance, iMore!

Thats a comment! :-)

dhutt005 says:

You know, When the iPad Mini was rumored, I didn't think it would be something that special But when Apple announced it yesterday and made it Official, it's actually not a bad product. I guess is just that I was expecting the screen size of that would be smaller Than it actually is.

na7rf says:

Pick me. Then my wife will have her own and won't always be swiping my iPad. Thanks iMore

jreyes_009 says:

This will not directly compete with android, rather it will give people one more choice, especially iOS users who want a lighter tablet.

_Fluffy_kitten_ says:

I'd donate sooo much money to this websitw if i was the lucky winner :)

That will never happen though :(

prasanna020391 says:

IPad Mini......winning it will really be amazing and yes will be my first idevice...I would really like to win it and start a relationship with an android user till now and IPad mini will definitely blow all the android tablets in the market with its reduced size and weight but with the known quality of apple.... defiitely would like to win it....any colour..

zerog46 says:

Would love to win one of these. My son and daughter are asking for it for Christmas.

rmuller612 says:

Seems like a great product, small, light, and powerful.....I think this will take off, but just not as big as the iPad. I guess time will tell, I would love to receive for free though....thanks for all the offerings you give.

I have a family that I'm trying to support and OHHHHHHHHHHHHHH how I would love to be the one to be picked for this FREE gift.
