    I love this sort of story! AppleInsider reports that according to a new survey from app maker Epocrates, one in three of the 48 physicians surveyed said that they are planning to get an iPad mini because of its size. Epocrates says that this is because the iPad mini passes the “lab coat test,†meaning that it will fit neatly into a lab coat pocket. Furthermore, 90% of the physicians contacted by Epocrates said that they think that the iPad mini’s smaller size will make it easier to carry on their hospital rounds, or take with them when visiting exam rooms.

    As AppleInsider notes, members of the medical profession were among the earliest adopters of the first-generation iPad, with Stanford’s School of Medicine giving iPads to its students shortly after it was first released in 2010.
