    There is no point to the iPad mini if you own a proper ipad ad an iPhone

    How can others tell you if there is a point of it or not. Decide for yourself.

    If having the 4 means you will never use the mini, don't waste your money.

    On the other hand, if you will use both of them in different situations and for different tasks, and you don't mind spending the money, the by all means get one, if you want to.

    No one but you can answer the question for YOU.

    I will probably sell my ipad it I find I really like the mini. Sometimes my ipad feels to big to carry all the time. I usually take my ipad to the office So I can watch my ebay auctions.



    Please...do not post your eBay links here....

    I disagree. The other way around would be more accurate for me. I can't always carry my iPad but my iMini can go with me anywhere due to the size difference.

    That's my thought too. Eagerly awaiting my mini LTE so my iPad 3 can stay home for media use.
