    I keep buying new gadget hoping for the best of the best. I thought the original iPad was too large for day to day practicality, but came to find out the Mini is also not ideal size. Better explanation, or reason for my thinking is that I hoped the Mini to be an iPhone with magnified version, yet it is rather a miniaturization of the larger iPad. So, it fills neither gap. Therefore I concluded the perfect size for the next iPad should be a slightly larger of Samsung Note 2 range with identical iPhone applications with magnified view, and allow users to download apps from eihter iPhone specific or iPad. (I need to be hired by Apple as I also came up with the Mini idea as soon as the very first iPad came out :).

    Why did you think the mini would be a bigger version of the Iphone? I assumed as it was to be called a "mini ipad" that it would be as it is - a smaller version of the Ipad.

    Well, remember when the first iPad came out, people were saying it was just a larger version of iPod Touch? Somehow it got stuck in my mind to this date. Having owned no iPad until the Mini, I just learned the major differences between iPod and iPad apps in most part. Just saying.

    I think they should put OSX on the regular iPad and IOS on the mini...

    They look nice, but the OS is terrible IMO.
