    How to lock CAPS

    Unfortunately, it is not like a regular keyboard in that if you need to type a number, the caps lock is turned off again.

    Net Neutrality Lives! FCC will Classify the Internet Under Utility-Style Rules

    Netflix and other streaming services won't have to raise prices but I'm less concerned about the big guys. A popular website or forum won't have to charge visitors more to pay an Internet provider extra money so that traffic won't be slowed down to them.

    How Many Apple Products Do You Own?

    iPad 3 iPhone 5S ATV 2 ATV 3 (x 2) I don't hate Android but I plan to get a Mini w/Retina to replace my Nexus 7. I might even get the thin Sony Windows Tablet instead of the iPad 5 if the Mini screen size bothers me.

    iPad Mini with Retina display vs iPad Mini: specs comparison

    Do you think TouchID will be the only attractive feature in the Mini 3? :D Every 2 years feels right for me. The iPad 3 replaced my original iPad and the iPhone 5S replaced my 4S. I do plan to get the Retina Mini which may replace my iPad (if the small screen doesn't bother me when used as...

    T-Mobile’s CEO hints that the carrier may soon start iPad sales

    It is good news. I hope the new iPads are like the iPhone 5S in that there is ONE model with both GSM and CDMA radios so you can use any carrier's SIM. It is not like the carrier subsidizes the iPads so that hardware restriction needs to disappear.

    AT&T announces 250MB/day plan at $5 and 1GB/3-month at $25 for iPad users

    1 GB per 3 months for $25 sounds very good to me. I currently turn on Verizon's 1 GB for $20/month several times a year and never use that much data given WIFI availability. At $100/year, I'd leave that plan in place. Nice timing given the upcoming announcements.

    Could Apple launch an iPad-laptop hybrid?

    I have the Logitech thin keyboard as in your avatar and plan to get something similar for the iPad 5. Sure, a hybrid will have takers but all Apple needs to do is produce very slim keyboard cases that integrate even better with iPads.

    iPad mini 2 could outsell thinner 'iPad 5' nearly 2:1

    iPad 5 to replace my iPad 3 this time. I might replace my Nexus 7 with a Mini at some point but not this year. An iPad 5 and iPhone 5S are more than enough iDevices for 2013. (Maybe an iWatch or new ATV though. :p )

    [Rumor] iPad Mini 2 Pics Found With Fingerprint Scanner and Gold Coloring

    I'd love a retina Mini with TouchID in gold, please. My gold 5S has left me hungry to upgrade my iPad 3. Not sure I want a gold full-sized iPad though. I prefer the black faceplate when watching videos but I'll take it space gray if they don't make a black and gold model -- my preference.

    Welcome to the iPad 5 Forum

    I still have the iPad 3 and if there is a retina mini this year, I'm in for that no matter what the 5 does. Love the convenience of my Nexus 7 but prefer the iOS apps over the Android equivalents. I may even upgrade my iPhone 4S to the 5S for another reason to accumulate lightening adapters.

    buy mini now or waite

    Except when they release them (original and iPad 3) in April. :D I agree that we may be waiting longer this time but hope we are wrong. I'm tired of my Nexus 7 (still love my iPad 3 at home though) and ready for the new Mini.

    How many apps have you installed on your iPad?

    332 but its been 3 years.

    Age is relative. There are some "young" people who are less enthusiastic about technology than my 84 year old aunt. I'm in my 50s and cannot wait for a self-driving solar powered car.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    If you need something NOW, get the Mini. If you can wait, hold out and see if the Mini with retina is released this Spring.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    The Mini is a tad bigger than the Nexus 7 so a Mini wouldn't fit either. I do agree that a thinner regular iPad would be nice.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Can't blame you. My iPad 3 is too big to carry in my purse although I prefer using it for videos, typing things, and browsing the web on the sofa. It is essentially a laptop replacement. I have a Nexus 7 (small Android tablet like yours) that I carry in my purse. It is fun playing with and...

    Which one is the iPad4??

    But since the iPad 3 also has a Retina Display, these descriptions are confusing. :D

    I played with one at an Apple store and although the screen is not as good as my iPad 3, I was pleased with it. Still will wait for the retina Mini though.

    I'm thrilled you are here and so up on technology. I plan to be just like you in this regard.

    True but I prefer it for videos and the onscreen keyboard. I will have both.

    My 16GB Nexus 7 is on order. I need a smaller tablet and the white Mini is calling me.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Oh crap. I'm going to the Apple store tomorrow to get my iPad replaced (home button problem) and I KNOW I will see the Mini. I must resist since my Nexus 7 is on order.
  24. Beryl

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Totally agree. This Mini is a bit pricey given the specs. I need a 7" tablet now so unless I'm gifted a Mini, I'm buying a 7" Android (probably a Nexus) and planning for the next Mini in 2013. I'll continue to enjoy the Apple ecosystem with my other iDevices.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    I was thinking the same thing. If I had unlimited LTE via USB dongle, I'd leave whatever computer it is in - up and running 24x7 acting as a hotspot for everything in my house needing Internet: printers, TiVos, cellphones, tablets, Slingbox, cameras, BluRay players, Apple TVs, Skype phone...

    iPad Mini obsolete already?

    I'm an Amazon Prime customer who has lots of iDevices and looking forward to these announcements. I will be purchasing a smaller tablet and it will be either a Kindle, Nexus, or Mini.

    Apple Unveils Fourth-Generation Full-Sized iPad

    I'm keeping my iPad 3 as well. I have too many connectors for 3 iDevices to switch yet. Maybe if/when I get the iPhone 5S, I'll want to transition.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    There are plenty of apps on both platforms. I just dread having to pay $40 again for Slingplayer. After a couple of disappointing years trying to find good Amazon Prime video content, I'm enjoying the new additions there. Just watched Season 4 of Damages there - commercial free. After...

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Huh? A waste for you, maybe, but not for those who need or want a smaller device using the same ecosystem. I may not purchase one due to upcoming Nexus announcements but it certainly wouldn't be a waste for me if I did. I have an iPad 3 and I'm only a tad disappointed that it has been replaced...

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    I'd get a white one. However, I'm waiting for the upcoming Nexus announcement before deciding on which 7" tablet to purchase. The Mini looks sexy but I'm not impressed given the price.

    iPad Mini obsolete already?

    Don't think the Mini will kill the Android e-reader market at all. They will gain marketshare, however.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Is there a thread here that compares the Nexus with other tablets -- including the iPad? I am itching to get some kind of Android device. I'm the same way. I use my iPad all day every day but it is too big and heavy to carry with me on errands and short meetings. My 4S is good in a pinch but...

    I know this. I'm referring to the Fire. S/he said they had limited android apps.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    ?? You can't install stuff from the Google marketplace? Talk to me, if the Mini is too expensive, I will be buying the Fire or the Nexus 7.

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    (Did you read any of the posts in this thread?) Several people in this thread explained why they need a smaller tablet. IMO, it is like saying that you don't see the point of owning a sports car when you've already got a minivan.
  37. Beryl

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    I'm in the same place -- New iPad yet will purchase a 7". It will come down to price and size to determine if I'll buy the mini.

    What would it take to get you to buy an iPad 3?

    Hate hearing this. You've looked into trade-up options?
  39. Beryl

    Who Here That Owns An iPad Will Buy The iPad Mini?

    Rumor has it that the mini will be larger than 7". If true, I will pass. Sunday I wished I had a 7" because my iPhone was just too small for Bible reading and note-talking.
