Is it possible that Apple is doing a redesign of the iPad Mini in view of the recent new 7" tablets, especially the new Nook HD?
I am sure the iPad Mini is going to be the best tablet for it's size. But are consumers going to pay for the best tablet if they are just going to use it mainly as a portable device and only need reasonably good performance rather than the best performance, especially if they could achieve this at half the price? Another reason users may opt for a cheaper tablet is because portable tablets would be more prone to damage and theft.
are you joking? at this point redesign? The "rumor " says delayed from Sep to Oct not till next year what is it you dont understand it is written in plane English. Sep to Oct well we are in Oct and I bet the CC was delayed from Tur as usual to thursday because maybe they will anounce the iPad mini at Tuesday just befrore Thursday earnings -will see
