Win a free iPad mini from iMore!

Apple has announced the iPad mini and we know you want to get your hands on one immediately if not sooner -- who doesn't? -- so iMore wants to make it as easy as possible for you...

By giving away a free iPad mini to one lucky iMore reader!

That's right! Free. No strings attached. All you have to do is be a registered member of iMore and leave a comment below. You have one week to get your entry in, so get to it! We will announce the lucky winner next week here on the blogs.

And if you haven't already, make sure you also enter to:

As for the rules: We'll adjust the details (name and model) once Apple's made the announcement. One comment per person. If we find you trying to cheat and enter multiple times, you will be disqualified. The contest is open worldwide, so anyone can enter. And the prize is just the tablet, any contract and accessories are the responsibility of the winner. Now, while we really do appreciate you reading through to the end, GO ENTER! Good luck!

Not sure I see the point of the device, but if I got a free one, I'd happily report back on it. They're pretty, but I'm not sure they can compete with the HALF the price options in the same size/portability bracket. Except with the folks who just buy iEverything.

BillJude56 says:

Hey, if I were to win the iPad Mini I could reinstall the iMore app. My ancient iPad 1 just can't keep pace.

Cashflo21 says:

Please pick me!! iPad mini 64gb with both wifi & cellular! PLEASE! PICK ME! I'll honestly take which ever one you guys choose! IMORE ROCKS!

Real_Risingsun says:

I really like what i saw of the iPad Mini today. The price was a bit of a shock but overall I think it would make a great handheld gaming device. I'm going to have to get it in Black, thats for sure, looks stealthy just like the iPhone 5.

glennkaonang says:

Very informative site. Always looking forward to the podcasts.

delgrego says:

Yes I would like one very much thank you.


Just in time for the Holidays!! Perhaps this will be the second hottest thing since the IPhone, I have already committed to purchasing an IMini. Honestly, as much as I use the IPad I can't wait to get my hands on the iMini to publicly display the great usage of a non-Phone item. The display already superseded my expectations. Sorry, Google but I am an Apple fan and I know there will be tons of I'impact on the later years for Apple but for now I will I'njoy this new I'product.. Thanks!!

Apple is customizing the software to meet the standards for different products, what a wonderful way to give users a superior experience!

drfyzziks says:

Would love an iPad Mini. I've got a Nexus 7 and while it's a nice little tablet, it doesn't have the same selection of apps available for it. As a developer with (IMHO) a decent sense of design, the majority of Android apps lack the cohesive design of their iOS counterparts.

iamtone says:

Pick meeeeeeeeeeee haahha Real talk tho iMore has the best prizes

Ytrehod says:

I'm sure the end price for even the low-end model will be in contrast to the new iPad costs. I'm sure that must be a price break I would guess of about 100$ difference.

anoak says:

I would love to get an iPad mini! Please!

aaquino3 says:

I'm a little upset with the new iPad coming out, furthermore having an iPad mini would be really awesome to have. Such portability and for me that is the key.
