Maybe there will only be limited models of mini, like black or white 16 GB. Possibly they are not selling enough or not enough margin? The regular iPad now looks pretty small.  Eh, the mini will be around, 99% sure. As long as they have there 40% margins on product. Most people use them for reading?
The Slate may fail from competition that has better and cheaper solutions. The Slate is expensive compared to the competition. With that said, the 12" iPad sounds like a niche product that probably isn't needed or wanted by most people. Like the 17" MacBook Pro. Same could be said for all or most iWatches and the Apple Hifi speaker system.
Glad to hear it is "secretive". If it was "secret", we wouldn't have heard about it.   Apple is better at keeping quiet.   It seems since Apple has brought in outside people, they can't double down on secrecy and get people to keep quiet.   Meh.
Time will tell. Some of us didn't see the iPhone as that big of a deal. "I mean, typing on a screen?

Had this problem in grad school when upgrading to a new hard drive. Said needed new license. Or use Office online for free. There are alternatives out there for the vast majority of...
I think their lead designer/architect is Rube Goldberg. It can be daunting to actually use it while saying a few prayers that you can find something. You have to feel for the people who have not been around using software all of their lives try to use iTunes.
Better to wait for the 'S' models.....fine tuned and better still!
How about a Apple "Streetview" like Google Streetview for maps? Yes, better battery technology and putting the money to use. Apple seems to only use the money to prop up stocks. Do they really need to do that? Invest in Space X. Invest in something that will provide return.
