    (Laughing)....'nuf said.......Seriously, though, I can see how some people may benefit from having phone capabilities on their iPads, however, I don't think the number of people who would actually walk around talking via their iPads, whether directly or via Bluetooth, is enough to sway Apple in that direction. Of course, I could be wrong and have no stats to back my claim

    No! If I wanted a tablet with phone capabilities I would buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. I don't mind having both my Mini and iPhone 5.

    No way. I like my iPad to be a tablet and my 4" iPhone to be a phone.

    While I’m not "from Apple", I do use Apple products every day... and IMHO, that’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard (or at least it’s in the running)... I would most definitely NOT be interested in a phone the size of an iPad Mini...

    It is true that smartphone sizes are increasing on other platforms. However, looking at Apples current trend of the iPhones overall size and shape, I doubt very highly that we'll see a Phablet for Apple.

    Yeah its true that the market for these phablets is still small for them to jump on it...lets be realistic about it...itsn't great waliking around holding just one gadget that could serve as a phone and a tablet at the same time...it might not be the ipad mini with a phone function at this point...IMHO if there is one company who could provide us the perfect phablet hardware n software wise it would be apple...

    When I am outside I don't need a large device with me. My iPhone 5 does everything my iPad Mini does now, only in a smaller form factor.

    Perhaps in certain situation. For me I don't want to buy2 contracts though unless of course you don't have a phone.

    Having said that I do carry my iPad mini WiFi only and my Iphone 5 (like most people I guess) . I am in the UK with O2. O2 has an app called "Tu Go" on the iPad mini. It allows me to receive/send texts and make phone calls (as long as I have WiFi of course) using my Phone contract. So now when I am sitting at desk, or in a caf, I rarely take out my iPhone. Of course if you know people with Iphone you can also use iMessage and FaceTime.

    That's why I am getting the 6+. A good compromise in size and capability.
