    I know there are tons of folks out there that just can't stand not having the latest new apple product.
    So will you dump the 3 for a new shinny mini?

    Yep I know for me the 3 is perfect, so I'll be passing it up but I think it's a great size for a large segment of users with good eyes and small hands.

    Nope! I love my 3. I can't imagine going smaller. My iphone 4 is small enough. I love my books and videos on the 3. The mini will appeal to people upgrading or buying new tablet instead of other samples on the market. The name Apple goes a long way.

    Well, screen size of iPad 3 is just about perfect. As Steve Jobs once said "7 inch tabs are two big to be used as a phone and too small to be used as a tablet PC"! But I know the portability of 7 inch tablet is one thing that would attract masses!

    Never.....
    IMHO the iPad 3 size is perfect...........anything smaller and it's just plain tedious to do anything for an extended period of time.

    No way I'm getting rid of my iPad 3 with its retina screen for a weaker device without a retina screen.

    However, I will consider, once I see the actual price of the various models, adding an iPad Mini.

    The new, smaller iPad isn't even in the same league as the regular one. It's like comparing an apple with an orange. You might like one more than the other or maybe, you like them both! Your choice. I'm doing just fine with what I got.

    I consider the mini an accessory if you have a full size iPad. More zoom zoom. :)

    No way! Going from an iPad 3 to a mini will be a hefty downgrade. It'll be great for folks just getting into the tablet market and for casual users.

    Very much enjoying my still-new black 64gig WiFi iPad3, so a new smaller Apple pad, probably without Retina and some other iPad3 goodies, would just make it a matter only of size convenience in different situasions.

    Now if the new Mini would front up with a good camera and can also be a phone with a sim card slot, that would perk up my interest. Pointing the iPad3 as a camera or putting it to my ear as a phone somehow seems err strange, perhaps comical.

    Gee I love all the speculation before a new product comes out and seeing in retrospect which guesses were right!
