    also OP could you tell me about these hotspots? I only use wifi at home and school, I have yet to use it anywhere else.
    Not sure why this didn't post the first time. Many businesses, i.e. McDonald's, Starbucks, Panera Bread and such offer free WiFi. I also use a Virgin Mobile hot spot that I purchased. No contract, buy whet you need when you need it. Great little gadget.

    Tawcat...this is off a little bit from the thread, but have you noticed Virgin Mobile's site not working the last month. It's hit or miss with trying to access my account to add more minutes to my mifi broadband device.

    Going into a month of owning this mini, I have to admit, I'm loving it. Had a few reservations at first, but using it daily has disspelled any concerns.

    I don't find screen size an issue, it's all relative. I really think that if Apple introduced the original iPad this size, all other tablets would never have hit the market. Just sayin!

    I just picked up an iPad Mini the other day for my wife (birthday present). Got her the 8GB white WiFi model.

    I have a 32GB iPad 2 (my son mainly uses it) and a 16GB 'New' iPad that my work bought for me, but I'm kind of growing on the small Mini since it's fun to use and very compact compared to the full size. I do notice that the resolution is similar iPad 2, where if I look closely I can see the icons and words a little pixelated compared to my 'New' iPad as that's crystal clear and the icons & text look very seemless on that. But that's not a deal breaker to me, and I'm now considering buying a black one for myself just to have as a fun travel toy.


    The only thing I don't really like is that there aren't that many great cases for it. There are a lot of cases out there, but none that I really like much. I've grown on the iPad Smart Case that I have on my 'New' iPad (I just hate that it's hard to stand up because of the backing, and I wish Apple would come out with a Smart Case for the iPad mini, instead of just the Smart Cover (I never really liked them, and I had a couple and always ended up selling them).

    SDM44: have you considered a slip case? I use a universal pointmobl case from RadioShack which was around $25. Works great for me.

    I have an Ipad 1 and 11 and bought the Mini. Put a Pong cover on the Mini and get better WIFI coverage and faster download speeds than with the Ipads.

    Just got this yesterday for $13. Essentially a Smart Case. This has great hand feel, too. Full protection front/back...the magnets hold the cover closed when upside down and when you fold it into a little triangle for a stand in either position, the magnets kick in to hold the shape of the triangle.

    Amazon.com: KHOMO Super Slim Red Case Polyurethane Smart Cover FRONT + Black Hard Rubberized Poly-carbonate BACK Protector for Apple iPad Mini 7 Inches 7.9 inch (Built-in magnet for sleep / wake feature): Computers & Accessories

    Unlike some of the other less expensive cases, the plastic back on this has smooth edges that feel good to your fingers. Other have sharp edges and give you the idea that you might get cut using them. The one flaw I find with this one is the cover has a border at the edge which you can feel. I expect it may eventually wear in along that border. But for $13, I'll just buy a new one. This one is very light weight, so it preserve a lot of what I like about the mini.

    Here's a link to the one I ordered, I didn't get all the other stuff just the case. Had one for my iPad, iPad2, wife's iPad2 and now my mini. I really like this case. Mine is orange!
