    Ok, so I have a choice, which one should I go for? I know the mini is newer but can the 2 do everything the mini can?

    So I believe the mini has a better set of cameras and if you are getting cellular a much more capable communications chipset. The mini is lighter and has higher pixel density. Newer Bluetooth 4 and Siri (although some may not list this as a plus).

    If you don't mind the size the iPad 2 would be good but if you like portability than the mini is good for that!

    Now you need to decide: white or black, cellular or not and 16GB, 32GB or 64GB. What ever way you go you will enjoy and be happy with it :)

    Eventhough both the iPad 2 and the iPad Mini have similar specs, I doubt that Apple would continue to provide support (updates) for the iPad 2 with the next iOS update.
