I'm thinking now, that if they do offer a mini, I might get it. Sony just dropped out of the Android tablet market. I'm fearful for Android these days. The Google Nexus 7 is a nice tablet, so I gets I can get my Android fix there.
I do really enjoy my iPad 3, but when you put it inside a case, it gets heavy. I use it everyday, most so at work, too. My 4S is great when I have no other options. But if the mini is as light as the Nexus 7, it will become my second screen.
But we really need to face facts, it will not be a $200 device. It can't be. The new iPod Touch is $299, so no way the Mini (or Air) will cost less than that. Best bet is $350. I just hope they smarten up and throw in something like a GPS chip or something a little extra so people can deal with the price hit.
