It pains me to emphasize this point as I despise feeding the trolls, but unless the iPad Mini has something very unique about it, this product launch may be one of the more uneventful ones. I am NOT saying that it won't be the best selling product, but do anticipate a less-than-dramatic debut. Will large groups of society jump at the chance to purchase on day 1? Absolutely!... but it will take time for the masses to warm up to this mid-sized touch appliance. I'm hoping I'm wrong and Apple shatters all sales records from day 1 and hope that the halo/umbrella effect is stronger than cannibalization, but something tells me to temper enthusiasm during this roll out.
FWIW, I always enjoy Slurpy's direct, logical & violently humorous points.
