Win a free iPad mini from iMore!



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

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.

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 $279/289 would have been more reasonable for the "outdated" specs (outdates in terms of Apple products).

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

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 !!!!

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.

Just bought by first iPhone and loving it! Also have an iPad2 which is wonderful as well. What's great about my iPad is my daughter can use it so easily. It's amazing how my kids are able navigate around faster than I can!

iPad mini, you complete me. Also now that product release dates are lined up, I believe we now have an open slot in the spring for an Apple TV, 55 inch style keynote. Bazinga!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.

iPad mini sounds interesting but would rather win one! I think it will sell well due to the form factor.

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.

How could be amazing for me to be the amazing winner of this iPad mini.!!!! How it happen for one in my life time..?

I would absolutely love to win the mini ipad so that I could give it to my girlfriend for our third christmas together!

Great job as always on MacBreak Weekly! Nice scoops on the mini - I now know where to look to sift through the rumour mill.

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.

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 :>))

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.

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 :)

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.

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

Hi. I would really really REALLY love to have one of the new iPad minis. Please make me happy and give me one.

Thank you imore :)

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!

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.

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.

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? :)

i didnt get to get the iphone 5 but i'm going to try and when this new ipad mini,i got the iphone 4s and i love it,cant put it donw and im on imore 4 x a week,so i hope i can get picked for the ipad...

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!

Looking forward to one day owning this beautiful device. Great job Apple on taking on the market and innovating at level no one else understands or can accomplish at.

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.

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

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!!

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!

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. :)

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.

Since I have no iPad this mini would be a good introduction to the line....a white one if possible.

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!

Would love a mini! I have the archaic iPad that I received as a gift in July and is no longer made. Would love something that will be cutting edge for a while. Probably would drop my Nook Glow for the mini.
Thanks for the chance, iMore!

I'd be a little peeved if I had just purchased the new iPad. Plus the pricing for the family of products seems a little our of whack.

Thought the regular ipad was alittle bit to big so this would be perfect, I would sell my kidney for this lol pick me imore!

I'd love an iPad mini to give my niece as a Christmas present, as neither her nor I can afford one at the moment. Thanks iMore.

Price is a bit high, but I will get one. Will go for one with cellular data because the wifi only units don't have GPS. This will be an awesome GPS for the car!!

I Real like the device but i don't have enough money to buy it at this moment i wish to buy another time when the price is down.

NEWSFLASH: Ann Coulter is Missing.

Update: Ann Coulter's head found in Mosque Trash bin. It's Still talking sh...!

Thats a comment! :-)

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.

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

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..

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 this wonderful iPhone that I dearly love and I am also a owner of a small business that I also love and I have been patiently waiting and saving to buy this NEW and wonderful iPad mini. 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. Apple just seems to make my life soooo much easier and it helps me to grow my little business and take car of my family and stay in touch easier.

i've never had apple products. But i would love to use them. I know all about iphones, using only my friend's igadgets

No way am I paying $330 for the mini when I can get a refurb 3rd gen for $380, but I'll gladly take a free one.

Having transitioned from the BB after so many years to the IPhone 5, need I say more. Makes for a nice early Christmas present (for me).
