    The New York Times’ Nick Bilton gives the iPad mini a glowing review in the Bits blog today, even going so far as to say that it is Apple’s best iPad yet, “by far.†Bilton heaps Apple’s smallest tablet with praise, saying that it is now what he refers to as his “Desert Island Device,†meaning that it has now taken over from his iPhone as being the one device that he would take to a desert island. Despite being initially sceptical and, he says, rolling his eyes at Apple’s marketing of the new tablet, after using it for two weeks, he is now completely won over by the iPad mini. He even says that it is Apple’s best tablet, by enthusing that it is “the best tablet and reading device anyone has ever made.†Bilton says that what places the iPad mini in this exalted position is the fact that it is “truly portable,†and can fit in most jacket pockets (or handbags). Bilton even dismisses concerns about the iPad mini’s display quality as “completely irrelevant.â€[/FONT]

      Wow. I almost agree with him. I have to admit, though, I'm in love with mine. We still need to keep the pressure on Apple to add a retina screen.

      And, IMO, if they can beef up the internals and keep the lightness, then the original 9.7-inch iPad is a goner. :)

      This kind of sums it up for me:

      Now this is worrying me a little bit:

      Nick Bilton is an idiot and obviously doesn't read comics or enjoy a good size screen for movies. FAIL :thumbsdown:

      There is a better version of the second one, by this husband and wife team, but I couldn't find it.

      I have no interest in a small tablet. I don't care what the NY times tells me, the screen is too small for a laptop replacement, and that is what my tablet is.

      End of story.

      Have to agree with you here.
      I use the iPad3 to pass the time in my taxi whilst waiting on the ranks. A smaller screen is of no use to me. A have an iPhone if I want a smaller screen.

      I like screens of all sizes, which is why I own a variety. I don't need a reviewer to tell me what's the "best," because I know what my preferences and priorities are, and he doesn't.

      It's too small for an only tablet!!! If I get one for Xmas or win it in a contest I won't turn it down lol. I am not going to buy one.
