Appears to be smaller and lighter than the original iPad, might suit some people, might fit into a suit pocket and stuff.

Not sure I have the original iPad, and very happy with it, will be sticking with it.

PS love my iPhone 4s:D

have a samsung galaxy tab 7inch , one of the reason i brought it was because of the compact design , the ipad is too big and bulky

I'd like to see one in between the two, but a little bigger and thinner and more square.

Think the Nexus 7 does it better for a small price tag..

Works getting a couple of the mini's so can test with them.

The full size ipad was updated as well.

Nexus 7 has a smaller screen than the mini.
Plus googles releasing a 10" version soon

Older design of the nano was far Bette I reckon... Perfect for the gym..

You're not the target audience , US/world education market , anyone thinking of buying a 7" tablet , the Chinese middleclass and to run off Microsoft.

Apples Chinese sales are going nuts.The middle class likes there gadgets and Apples seen as much higher quality than all the local brands.

wifi model
can link your phone via bluetooth or wifi (personal hotspot).

Could link ipad to either phone depending on who has the most data left

it'll work with a wifi router/access point.

Don't know about linking it with laptop wifi (for windows or linux), I don't have a laptop

It'll work with a mac's wifi direct(no router/access point) - have to share internet connection via wifi in the macs control panel.

ebay is the cheapest.

There are much better tablets for much cheaper.

The only reason I would buy one is if I was an Apple fanboy. Apple is 'okay' if you own a Mac, iPhone, etc and synch them all together. Other than that I would personally choose another tablet.
