I don't have an ipad and have thought about one for several years. Now that they have come out with the
mini ipad, I'm going to get it. I do like the idea of the size because it will be handy to fit in my purse, yet I
think it's still a good enough size to utilize without being too small. Pre-order begins tomorrow Oct.26.

I have actually been thinking of trying something new to fix that. I have an iPod Touch 5G with a great camera, but it only works on wifi. There is a new device called FreedomPop that lets you turn it into a VoIP/data phone for free.
Just imagine, no more data or voice plan payments. If you go over 500MB it is only $10 per Gig. If it was just available in my area!

The cover was $39 and I was hesitant to get it because I know I will eventually use something else for it.
Also, I am in a high sales tax state so tax for me was over $45.
In comparison to the IPad 4 with retina display, I'd probably been out a two to three hundred dollars more due to higher price but also due to more tax, etc.
I think I will like the mini ipad rather well. I like that it is large enough to comfortably see without being quite as large as the iPad so that it fits easier in normal size places.
I thought about doing that a year ago. I have the IPOD Touch 4. Instead, I bought a Samsung Tracfone Smart Phone. I like it because I get triple minutes whenever I purchase minutes, there is no monthly bills, it has wifi, and actually functions and works about the same way an apple does.
Here's the jest of it for me in regards to the mini iPad....I have laptops and notebooks and the big 27 inch mac....plus an ipod. I don't use a cell phone much so there was and is no point in my paying a monthly fee for a cell phone.....which I did for many years pay verizon every month until I got smart and canceled it. If I want a ten inch screen, I can use my netbook.
I know the mini ipad does not have the retina display but I don't really care. I plan to check it out more today as I think today is the day we can order the mini.
