    I want an iPad mini, because I love the idea and the look...but the hardware is keeping me from buying it. It's already so old. iPad 2 hardware and no retina..anybody else having this thought?

    First Time stopping by to hang out. Trying to stay up, but have my alarms set if I don't make it to 3am. Ordering the 64GB Wi-Fi white mini. I have the new iPad 3rd gen. white 64GB Wi-Fi with cellular, but wanting something even more portable. I will tether it for data connection out of Wi-Fi areas

    Doesn't bother me one bit. I don't plan on using it for serious gaming (that's what my 3DS and iPhone are for), so I really don't care. It's more than enough to power the few games I will play on it. I'll be using it primarily for web browsing and reading comics and books.
    RealNeal and cycling56#CB like this.

    The hardware is a little dated, but what sense really would it make to have a "big" and "mini" version with the exact same specs. I bet the mini picks up retina resolution next go around. But as far as staying on par with its counterpart.. Not likely.

    The hardware is not dated. New case, new advanced battery, new WiFi (super fast), LTE, new cameras (just like the Retina iPad), Lightning connector, Siri, new display using GF2 technology (brighter, lighter, smaller pixels). The ONLY thing the same as the iPad 2 is the processor. And since its driving a smaller device it should do fine. Same processor used in the new iPod Touch.

    Has anyone wondered as to when Siri will finally come out of beta? A thought to ponder....

    You'd think that since they're using it across the line it would be considered out of beta by now.. Maybe they're waiting to add more to it.

    And thanks for the correction RealNeal I meant the processor and 1024x768 display... Hardware was the wrong term to use.

    Exactly. How much more can they add to her?

    The processor is powering a smaller screen so it should be just fine. The 1024x768 display is also squished into a smaller screen so the actual pixels per inch is about 30 more pixels per inch than the iPad 2. The screen will be crisper than an iPad 2 but not quite as crisp as a retina display. All initial hands ons have reported that its screen is quite vibrant, sharp, and bright.

    I sold my first-gen iPad last year for a nice sum, and have been waiting for the right time to get back into tablets. This looks like a great time! I'm planning to get the white 4th-gen iPad tonight because:
    1. I've had black iPhones (3G and 4) and the black iPad 1, and I've decided to switch to white. Got my white iPhone 5, and next week will hopefully get the matching iPad!
    2. I'd like more screen real estate, and I want that Retina display!

    Though if I won an iPad Mini from iMore, I would be pretty thrilled as well!

    Well that's odd... I wonder when they're going to declare it out of beta. Maybe one more major update?

    No problem. But the display is new too. GF2 technology is much better than what you find in the iPad 2.

    That's what I'm saying. Unless they can make her more built-in and not strictly rely on a data connection that much, I don't know how much more they can add or do with it.

    Or they'll just drop the Beta tag one day without saying anything
