jennpurr says:

I think this is such a great edition. The other tablets are smaller and less cumbersome. I'm super excited the new mini is smaller and thus more portable! Thanks Apple... Love your products!

ctothill says:

I need an iPad mini for the wife!

viski78 says:

I would love to have one!!
Hope it's mine.. ;-)

blade86 says:

I'ts about what I expected, but I still want one.

4iheart says:

I was not happy to see the price point for the mini is still in the 300 dollar range. I have wanted to buy the i pad for my son but I can not get myself to spend the money for something I know he would use for playing "games". I have spoke with many therapist about the ability to use the educational apps for learning tools, but still that is a lot for a game.

eraserx says:

Let's go iMore ;) Thanks for the new iPad...

Jamie_G says:

I would love to win an iPad Mini, it looks great, danke/merci/gracias/thanks!

Sharkbaait18 says:

I've always wanted a tablet ^_^

Talker says:

I'm putting my eyes on the brand new iPad 4th generation, but if I get the cool iPad mini....count me in!!!

Kwatsoon says:

These give-aways are awesome. Thanks iMore! :)

mrsnork says:

My feeling is the iPad mini is superior to its competitors in terms of quality and overall user experience. Additionally, you have the name cachet that only Apple can bring to consumer electronics. The greater price compared to a Samsung tablet, Kindle, etc. is therefore justified. It's like choosing a Mercedes over a Chevy. They'll both get your from point A to point B, but the Mercedes is better appointed and higher quality (perhaps arguably), and it has the status, and you are paying a correspondingly higher price for it. Regardless of price, I'll certainly take one for free from iMore! Thanks for the opportunity.

gr1337 says:

I would love a black one!

techboy1980 says:

i LOVE free stuff! iMore rocks!

shahin7631 says:

I personally think that apple is selling bad hardware in a nice shell im apple fan but this is not a good policy

Gagerdude says:

iPad mini + free = Happy Me

MichaelGG#IM says:

Finally the iPad Mini is here!!! Gosh I love anything shiny and new from Apple.

reggie list says:

I am logging on here after seeing Rene on Macbreak Weekly!!!! Greatttttttt to see a super knowledgeable Montrealer giving the 411 on Apple and technology issues.

I would agree completely with some of the comments made during Macbreak Weekly 322. First, I agree that Apple is starting to have too many SKUs. I remember how terrible this problem was and then S. Jobs came in and destroyed 90% of the SKUs and that it's time for a repeat. Second, wow, after the big reveal yesterday, what is there left for Apple to announce for their March 2013 period? Third, if Apple is comparing iPad mini to the Nexus 7, the Nexus 7 might have a refresh on Monday and it might be a 16GB Nexus 7 for $199 -vs- iPad mini 16GB for $329. Stay tuned.

On another point, man, I feel the pain of any iPad ver. 3 owner. Just punishing to see the ver. 4 announcement yesterday and then to see ver. 3 for $379 on apple store refurbished site (they are now OOS btw). Brutal. I have been an Apple user for about 15 years now but some of their, we can call them policies, are so expensive, I just don't understand it! On newegg this week there was 16 GB laptop RAM for $67. To upgrade the new Mac mini through Apple it is [Add $300.00]!!!!!!!!!!! Just painful!!!!!!!!

temm says:

Same here. After seeing Rene on MBW 2 or 3 weeks ago i visit imore daily.

Great in-depth knowledge and nice articles.

ctakas says:

KevinOniMore says:

a tiny wish for my little friend mini.

scottfs says:

I'm ready for an upgrade from my original iPad 16 gig.

hahler2 says:

Not sure what I think about the iPad mini. I have no complaints with the price point. However, I would have loved to see them put a retina display in it. Will wait and reserve judgement til I can see one in person and play with it a bit.

That being said. Not gonna turn down a free one! :)
Thanks iMore!

Dalton.Iiames says:

jarvis7614 says:

An iPad Mini would be FABULOUS!!!! It would be greatly appreciated.

JameSilva says:

iPad mini has, from the day it was announced, killed all hope the other 7 and even 8 inch tablets had. It just crushed their dreams of market domination. Now, this reader would love to get his hands on this revolutionary product.

addictedlypink says:

This will be the best advance Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas present ever! :)

ritav66 says:

I don't have an iPad and would love to have one. As for the price comparisons, I agree with those that have said "but it's an Apple". There is something to be said for being the leader of the tablet/phone world. Just is pay for what you get.

Akcim says:

send one to Czech republic, please

chriscw72 says:

I would love to have a white iPad mini!

mrdmc says:

I may be late to the game, but I still want in!

wednesday123456 says:

I've always wanted an smaller iPad. The ipad mini sound like my dream come true since i always carried around my ipad1 to play games on. Sadly, it's too heavy. Didn't have enough money to buy an lighter version. Just great news when i heard ipad mini would be priced between $200-250. My luck run out after finding out it retail for $329 including tax (9.7% in CA). Hope i can win an ipad mini by joining this free giveaway.

The Canadian Daily says:

Another winner from Apple. Substantial educational and entertainment niche. Don't even have to lower the price ...

karlosg says:


THE215kid says:

Big idea on the Mini iPad

geonautics says:

A bit disappointed this is an iPad 2 Mini. For the price, I rather spend $170 more to get the iPad 4. I will wait for the Mini with A6 & Retina, but I will take free one.

BoDLX88 says:

I really would like to get my hands on one:)) Thumbs up for the freebies!!!

mizzee says:

grzechockey9 says:

never had a ipad! TiPb please change this!!!

huffines says:

I'd like to win this. I would then attach my iPhone 5 to the back to make an amazing, dual-screened, back-to-front phablet capable of dominating the Galaxy Note. A pen (or stylus) may be mightier than a sword, but my FrankenPhablet would have lasers. Game. Set. Match.

seilke28 says:

I would love to win one so I can give it to my son for his birthday. :)

simonjgardiner says:

Finally an ipad that won't smack me in the face when I fall asleep in bed :)

IBFastEddy says:

I would love an IPad mini. Easier for traveling with. I use my IPad2 constantly and when it's not in my hands my wife has it. A second IPad would be well used. I'm hooked on Apple devices.

mikedavis929 says:

I want the iPad mini, I've been wanting it for months, I want something I can read more comfortably. Unfortunately I can not justify the $329, especially since I know if I do it will be updated in a couple months with Retina.

bigdad84 says:

I would really love one! I tried posting a comment earlier but it wouldn't go through. But, please, this would make the best early Christmas present! :)

olivier.basquiat says:

the ipad mini is a great device for an 8 hour flight over the atlantic this holiday. Airline movies and music sucks.

Rbminlv says:

My wife wants one sooooo badly

xtreme528031 says:

I think the price of this new Mini should be comparable to the Kindle Fire FOR EXAMPLE for competing against other fairly priced products. My daughter loves mobile apps but is also VERY big on reading. I'd rather get her an IPad but have to go with what I can afford.

sheerpoetry says:

I would love an iPad Mini! So cute and looks to be perfect for eBooks on the go!

marsofearth says:

Mini-r and Lighti-r sounds just right for me! Our family would love one of these iPad-s

jlarosa1 says:

I was hoping that the iPad Mini would start at a $249 price point for the 16 GB WiFI model. This would had establised the pricing tier for the remaining models. Based on my experience with the iPhone I feel that I need a 32 GB model. Now it comes down to the decision of choosing the model with 4G which will be $559. At this price point there is no way that I am going to purchase an iPad mini without comparing it with an iPad for size and weight. So now I will wait until they are availalbe in the stores before making a decision of purchase the iPad Mini. Of course if I were to win an iPad Mini that would make the decision making much easier.

claybird says:

My wife would be ecstatic if I could afford this for her. Good Luck to Everyone!

garyburkhardt says:

The iPad mini would make a great addition to my Apple family.
