    Totally agree. No such thing as too much high tech.

    my company has under 5 staff, ground staff travel between retail outlets to stock take and top up of goods, so requiring them to carry cartons. Each of them carries ipad2s or 3s which are 3G and installed with software that have full ERP access to warehouse, as well as issue invoice, query stock, or e-sign documents. Think fedex style. Currently the ipads require 2 hand operation as well as a seperate bag to lug around.

    With something 7-8 inch, it will fit in cargo pants and the ipad 2/3s will be left in the warehouse for staff stocktake and other task where there is luxury or extra hands to hold them. We just hope there is 3G and 4G versions, else it wont work for us.

    This; there are times when the iPad is just a little too big to take along, and the iPhone version of an iPad App i want to use isn't *quite* the same. I'd love an iPad mini (as above, in addition to my two iPads and iPhone and iPods) - but I suspect what we'll end up with is an iPod+

    More like the iPad is a larger iPhone, without the phone part

    I'm torn about this. Guess it would depend on what features it had. For $300.00 how much storage would I have? Would I still have a front and rear camera , and if so how good would it be? Would I still have a retina screen like I do on my current iPad and iPhone?

    The iPod touch starts at $199, so I can't imagine a smaller iPad being less than $300. I wouldn't be surprised if it was between $300-$350.

    So my answer is- maybe??

    I also think that the mini iPad would be successful, but not too high,because mini iPad has its own flaws,like its operation,we may take care the price, Of course, it is cheaper than big iPad,but big iPad can do more work than mini iPad.and totally say,the mini iPad is very good, if it published, I will buy one.

    However the ladies can easily slip this into their bags, so it will be more popular with them no doubt :-)

    I like your idea. The major drawback is dealing with phone plan changes.

    If Apple ever decides to discontinue the iPod Touch line, maybe there's hope for the fabled iPad mini.

    I'd also buy an iPad mini to replace my second generation iPod Touch in a heartbeat.
