The "form-fitting" market is going to be a tough one, as Apple tends to change the design every couple of years. And these things are going to be a lot more expensive to product than a simple case.   If I were a manufacturer, I'd focus on the standalone version, as that can be used with iPads too.   As well as (potentially) an Apple TV...
It should have been obvious that this wasn't a final design, and that more changes would occur before the final release and launch date.
It could mean improved battery life, but knowing Apple it just means they'll cut the battery size in order to make the silly thing 1mm thinner.
Personally, I'm getting tired of this. So, yes, we're going to have a mini, and yes, it's going to be "retina", and yes, Apple is going to do the same copout move by simply doubling pixels.   Hey, I've got a crazy idea. How about teaching your developers how to do resolution independence?
  Wait? What? iPad apps are iPad apps, and we already have Retina iPads... with existing apps... that already use larger images and graphics. Thus a app for a "retina" iPad mini won't take up any more space that the same app downloaded to a non-retina mini.   You're not making any sense.
  Look at Windows 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and then finally 3.1. Look at how the initial sales of the Xbox fell flat, and only recently has been considered a major platform.   Microsoft has pockets deep enough to spend their way into a market, should they decide to do so. They have to keep pushing though, and not simply Zune-out after a few disappointing quarters...
  Unfortunately, Microsoft still has a huge war chest, while RIM's cupboards are looking pretty bare. It's entirely possible that MS could spend their way into acceptance, even if we have to wait for WP9 or WP10.   Agreed that there's still room for a third. Nice analysis.
Boycott Samsung! I, for one, will sell all of my Samsung gear and buy Apple! How dare Samsung use child labor in terrible conditions, working for slave wages! And so forth, and so on. Just reiterates the fact that ALL of our gear is produced that way, be it Samsung, Apple, or anyone else...
  If the vast majority of Android users are using their devices primarily as phones, then that doesn't bode all that well for the platform, now does it?
Forget that, what will they call 10.10? OS X2?
