    @Benno

    Yep and monumentally stupid in my opinion. 6 month product refresh is going to piss off a lot of people.

    The iPad mini is £269 ...

    I just don't think the 4th gen needed a faster cpu/gpu.

    It was never going to be cheaper than an iPod Touch.

    Needed to be £229 for me to bite.

    £279 i reckon and that is too much.

    Particularly when releasing a new super powered ipad 3 SIX BLOODY MONTHS after the last one is truly ludicrous.

    Isn't Nexus about to enter the market with an iPad sized device? Seems like kind of a logical response from Apple.

    You expected them to sell a massive ipod touch for less than an actual ipod touch?

    Hm? Was a year between 2 and 3, no?

    Anyway, new one could just be pocketable with the smaller screen and narrower bezel, but it's all useless for me until mobile data tariffs get reasonable here in Germany.

    there have been rumours about them changing the ipad release cycle to coincide with the "holiday season" for two years. I guess they finally did

    I wonder if we will see an ipad refresh in april next year at all.

    Easy logic.

    With an iPad 2, iPhone 4 and 3 month old 13" MacBook Pro I don't see anything I want.

    If I didn't have that stuff though, I'd be all over it. The new iMac looks amazing.

    I don't see the need for the iPad Mini though. I've never used my iPad and wished it was a bit smaller.

    ... 'easy logic'?

    Maybe for those who comfortably earn over a couple thousand pounds a month (!)

    I expect a ribbing but if anyone wants an ipad 3 16bg black wifi...

    5 months old, as new never been out of a case....

    Its yours for £300 posted.

    (Not aimed at PvtFloyd, btw)

    However,

    iPad mini 16gb new is gonna be £269, right ?

    How much does an Apple ***refurb*** iPad 2 16gb go for ?

    £259 from Apple. (When they have stock) in my experience, the returns are excellent.

    I would dearly love a mini, but its just not cheap enough .....

    ($329 is £209)

    Some people really do have more money than sense. ;-)
  • Deleted user 23 October 2012 20:21:10
    I'd love to be 'some people'.

    😝

    Two kids, a mortgage and living without credit cards (finally !) means that I just don't have three hundred quid spare.

    Ever.

    Just call the difference in price a "screen remains attached" tax.

    Any word on a 3G / 32GB Nexus tablet?

    I have a void in my 7-8" tablet range that I was hoping to fill.

    I remember back in the early 90's when running a game in 1024x768 was something to be proud of.

    definitely waiting for the 29th then for the google event.

    A nexus tablet with 32GB and 3G would do me I suppose.

    Sadly no ios games and work email though :(
