I dashed home about 3 hours ago to wait in for UPS to deliver my 128 GB iPad mini as I couldn't get anyone to wait in. Fortunately, the guy came at around noon so I was able to have a quick look at it and check it worked before coming back to work. It is gorgeous and it amazing to think that this small tablet is actually not only more powerful than the iPad 4 but also running a display that is the same 2048x1536 resolution. It looks super crisp and iOS, already v7.0.4 out of the box, is fast and responsive. Can't wait to get home and set it all up properly.|
I own a 64 GB iPad 4 but I would have bought an iPad mini if one had been available with a Retina Display last year. However, I plan on keeping the larger model and splitting content between to maximise the storage space: magazines and videos on the iPad 4 and games, books and music on my iPad mini. Thanks to iCloud, I'll be able to restore all my iPad 4's content on to the mini and then decide what stays on which tablet.
I was really impressed with the speed of delivery. I ordered it on Monday (2nd) and it had shipped from China on 3rd to arrive with me on the 5th. Now that is fast!
