Forbes on the iPad Mini.
"In all of my time covering Apple launches, this felt the most defensive presentation of little more than a “me-too” product."
"So we have the ultimate ‘inbetweener’ unit that’s larger than the 7″ competition, with a poorer screen (less pixels, over a larger area), two generations behind the rest of the iPad range. How do you sell that?"
"and a retail price that’s $130 more than the competition"
"all you can sell it on is the words ‘iPad’ and ‘Apple’."
The thing is, that might just be good enough.. If nothing else, Apple needs to be congratulated for that.
