don't burn yourself with the soldering iron, but I am  waiting for your benchmark test release.  
err...  your comment basically says that you don't understand the scope of BBM. BBM is closer to iMessage than SMS.  Always encrypted and relatively reliable, and can have business controls put on top of it.  For corps this is a must have.  
If you are using an iPad in fairly casual situations... the mini is too small and the retina is overkill. I'm using an iPad 2 as my 'non-work' computer...  With my uncorrected vision (and red-green colorblindness, it works fine in display mode.   I'm lacking a bit of 'zip' that my wife's iPhone 5 has... so I'm seriously contemplating a new iPad (and reusing this iPad 2 as a universal remote and home automation control).
