Some reviewers are going further. It sounds like some of them prefer the Mini over the iPad as their primary tablet, even if they had to get used to the lower screen resolution. That's a pretty compelling compliment. But it also makes you wonder how, after allegedly extensive research, Apple decided 9.7" was the optimal size. Regardless, these reviews prove Apple right, once again.
Apple decided to launch the 9.7" tablet first - and that is by far the most popular size on the market today.
I don't understand people who claim that iOS needs to be fundamentally changed. iOS is timeless. Just because YOU don't understand why the UI is infinitely better if it doesn't change doesn't mean (I HATE the "just because doesn't mean" sentence structure…) Apple needs to bow to your wishes.
Just as I don't understand people who can't understand that hardware evolves and who can't understand that there's room for two different sizes of iPads.
True, but. You don't wait for customers to stop being satisfied before you start acting. You do all you can to keep them satisfied. Otherwise, you risk to end up like RIM, Nokia... I'm pretty sure they were feeling very safe back in 2007.
Apple is acting, but. Is it enough? Time will tell.
Yes, time will tell - but it's far more likely that Apple is right. What are your credentials? What successes do you have to rival Apple's?
