%u201CBill did hold up a tablet many years ago,%u201D Ballmer replied, adding, "Maybe if we had started innovating then, which is what we really did with Surface, maybe we should have done that earlier. Maybe that tablet shift would have been sooner.%u201D

Sounds like Forstall could only really be put in place and command respect from Steve Jobs and when Steve passed Tim has had to play middle man between all the opposing SVP's. Hope Apples new restructuring works out. iOS and the App store literally propelled Apple forward past the competition the last five years. Also, Maps & Siri was no small task to integrate into iOS and push out to market as a usable product. It's unfortunate that heads had to roll at the top because...
I noticed that one too! Amazon are basically trying to put down the iPad mini's screen size as it's not even 720p resolution.

Apple iPad Mini 9.7" 1024 x 768 162ppi

At $329 I would prefer to go for a 9.7" iPad 4th Gen though at $499 for a lot more tech
