Obviously they did, but clearly they did not intend for you to use it at the airport, since Passbook is not enabled on it.
I think it's great the mini already has a base in the medical field, but merely being able to slip it in ones pocket does not seem reason enough to me to plunk down $330+ if you already have an iPhone AND an iPad unless, like the physicians, you have a need for it in the workplace. Since the mini cannot be used as a phone, are people really going to pay an extra $330+ to carry around a tablet along with their smart phone if they have an iPad at home unless they have a specific need? As mstone points out, most people carry around a bag of some sort capable of carrying a 10" iPad, be it a back pack, briefcase, purse, etc. however, jackets are not at all universal, especially in the Summer. And the men wearing nice suits, I don't really see carrying this around. Women's suits will not have anything like a big enough pocket.
