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!
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.
