    It's my understanding that the new mini does not ship until March 26.

    There have been a few articles by people who got early review units. The one by Jason Snell on Six Colors says about all there is to say about it. It’s a beefed up iPad Mini with better specs and hardware, in between the basic iPad and the iPad Pros.

    Those that have been wishing for an updated iPad Mini should be happy with it. I’m tempted.

    The new iPad Mini also has Apple Pencil support for the first generation Apple Pencil.

    What does the pencil do? I read it’s another hundred dollars if you want it.

    It’s used for drawing, sketching and much more.

    Looks like the Logitec Crayon will work with it as well. This stylus is a colaboratoin between Logitec and Apple orgiginally meant for the educational market, but now availale for anyone. It has the accuracy and smothness of the original Apple pencil, but not the presure sensitivity.

    I you just want to take notes or do simple sketches, it’s enough, and cheaper than the Pencil.

    The main issue (from my point of view) is that it charges via a femail lightning port. This means you can’t charge it from the iPad Mini when on the go. You’ll need a charger. The Mini’s charger will work.

    If I get the new mini, I don’t think I will use it, but if I change my mind I can always get it.
