Not a bad implementation! For the iPad, that is. Double the errors and the time spent pulled over trying to type on a mini's keyboard.

Can you please go to the Apple store and hold one in your hand?

Now here you have it, from someone who was won over. Me, I thought it would be a good idea from the beginning to have a jacket or purse size, and that it would be desireable for its charming mini-ness when compared with the "standard" iPad.

But I was not prepared for HOW desireable it is. This object is one very erotic little piece of metal and glass. The curvature of the edge of the back, the texture of the aluminum finish, the way the glass looks poured on, most apparent on the white one, and even the chamfer, the riskiest piece of computer machining ever attempted on a mass product (I'm guessing here)—all these combine to hook a susceptible person into having an "I want, must have" float up from their reptilian brain into awareness.

They're going to sell many millions and establish a new standard, like they did with the MacBook Air. I predict that "aluminum fetish" will enter the general vocabulary.

I'd love to. I plan to at the nearest opportunity. But I already know how large the keyboards are. That doesn't change my view.

WIth the iPhone and iPad I tend to only use the keyboard in portrait mode, but with the iPad mini landscape felt more natural. I haven't directly compared them but I'd say that landscape of one is about equal to portrait of the other.

TS, I agree with mstone... Just like the original iPhone or iPad -- you have to experience it to know what it's all about.

 

The onscreen kb is acceptable in landscape mode and leaves 1/2 the display available for text (unlike the 7" tablets).

 

The onscreen kb in portrait is easier to thumb type on than the one on the full iPad.

 

I am sitting here with a retina iPhone 5, a retina iPad 3 and the non-retina iPad Mini -- you can see the difference side-by-side, but it's not a deal-breaker. The Mini display is beautiful and, I suspect, much better overall than anything lower or close in price.

 

Again, just ignore the specs and the techie posts, and try one for yourself -- I think you will be sold!

Oh, absolutely. That's the only way to do it. It could be half the "power" of something else and still move like butter since it's from Apple.

I find typing on the mini to be quite easy.  In portrait you can type with just your thumbs, making it rather quick.

I wonder if they count people who exchanged iPad 3's for 4's as a "sale."
Thank god for Best Buy's 60 day return policy, that's all I'm saying on the matter.

Why not, as long as the same number is deducted from the iPad 3's sales? It IS a sale. The person WANTED it, so when they paid for it is of less importance.

Since you were bragging about how fast you can touch type on an iPad, I can understand that you would not want any keyboard that would force you to relearn the key placement. But with Siri you can do a lot less typing. In the hypothetical case of the police officer writing you up there would be almost no typing. Take a picture of the license, registration, insurance card, license plate and vehicle. The system could have some OCR installed for converting it to text. Speak the details of the violation and everything else is automated. About the only thing you would need to type in is the person's email so the system could send a copy of the ticket to their email. The reason I brought it up this example is because the obvious uses of a smaller iPad are in industries where they are already using that size of written input such as the policeman's ticket book, which the last time I saw one, was about the size of the iPad mini so the it would fit in whatever saddle bag or compartment the old ticket book lived. Same with waiter in a restaurant.

 

But aside from the similar size making it a natural, there are literally thousands of occupations that could find new ways to use the mini just because of it increased portability.

Best Buy -- and other similar non-Apple retail outlets -- likely accounts for a small portion of Apple sales (in the US).

And now we know why Apple priced the Mini the way they did - they're going to sell every single unit they can manufacture between now and Christmas.  

 

Sure, they could have accepted slightly lower margins and sold this thing for $299, but why?  They're going to sell every unit they can possibly make, and they're leaving the low-end of the market for the various Android craplets, Amazon and Microsoft's wacky Surface RT to squabble over.  It's the same strategy Apple employed back in the days of the home computer wars of the early to mid '80s.  Worked then, and it'll work again.

 

Sometime in April or May look for them to roll out a spec-bumped Mini with a retina display and faster CPU.  Just in time for graduation gifts and the back-to-school shopping season.  A new full-sized iPad will probably follow in October, in time for Christmas.

Let's see if Apple marketing can convince most to ignore that.

 

Keep in mind that this is a VERY DIFFERENT argument than TS's (i.e. that people just don't want a mini because it's too small, not functional, etc, etc).

Apple needs several months to ramp up Foxconn production of the mini anyway. and it will be the hottest gadget gift for the Holiday sales. so add those two factors together, and Apple will sell every mini it can deliver. until January at least. so "waiting til next year" (like i will) doesn't matter as long as next year's V.2 launch comes pretty soon. that's why i guessed March. anyway, as soon as the 8" 326 dpi retina screens are ready for full volume production at acceptable yeild - the A6 chip is ready now.

No but that doesn't change the analogy. If you are going to spend a lot of time writing you'll either get a mbp, mba or a wireless keyboard.

and of course it's also $170 less expensive. that explicitely expands its potential market, sounds like "$170 off" to most shoppers (not "$130 more" than x), and makes it more tempting to buy them for kids. all existing iPad apps work, so not problem there. plus a new generation of accessories ready for the lightning connector will quickly come to market.

 

i think this 8" 4:3 tablet form factor is the true "sweet spot" for all tablets, period, and certainly the best for mid-size tablets, defined as tablets you can easily hold with one hand. it delivers the best "reward" - screen area and map/web viewability in particular - for the "effort" required - physically holding the thing. it kicks 7" 16:9(10) tablets conclusively in the butt in these regards.

I simply don't see the problem with a smaller on-screen keyboard. I think the non-split keyboards on the regular iPad are too large, the iPad mini might tame it a bit. I have hands just oversize enough that I can't easily find comfortable gloves.

The exception: the buttons on the split keyboards are too small for me to use on the full size iPad.

Research has shown that a male's search for perfect tools is as old as his search for the perfect sex partner. Another test has shown that male test subjects who are shown a photo of a Vista "Start" screen have an involuntary tightening of the sphincter muscles.

I can't read through all this right now, so I hope somebody points out that Eddy Cue was right about this size.

It's a thing all to itself, a size all to itself, and it had to be made, competition or not. This is apparent when you first pick it up. I am glad they are showing how it should be done, no compromise on quality or on price. Make it obvious that you get what you pay for.

The non-retina screen will be seen by the tech press chihuahuas as a compromise, but any realistic person knows that it would be too heavy, pricey and too short in supply at this stage of the technology.

I've referred to Edy's email in previous posts, but without a competing product for him to have used he never would've made the suggestion.

Yes. I think Apple essentially maximized the amount of screen you can hold in one hand spanning grip.  This captures 80% of the screen feel of the bigger iPad but in half the weight. It blows the teeny 7" narrow screen tablets out of the way.

 

I expect the Mini will be Apples top selling iPad this quarter. But the big one still has a compelling feature in it's retina screen, but when the Mini gets Retina, I think the full size becomes a much harder sell. Hopefully Apple has something to make the bigger iPad desirable when the Retina Mini arrives.

Throw a Mini in one pocket and Folding keyboard in the other.

Still more mobile than a fullsize iPad and a wider more normal spaced actual keyboard.

24 Hours With The iPad Mini: This Is The Real iPad

My take after spending a bunch of the weekend with the iPad mini: This is the real iPad.  With the exception of screen sharpness, everything about it is better than the bigger, “classic” iPad — and screen sharpness won’t be a deal breaker for the vast majority of people.

"keyboards". There is already a scanner so you could swipe a suitably coded driver's license card. Heck I paid for a couple of meals at 10K in The California Sierra that way this past summer. Received an email receipt on my phone  before I could reach the door. Okay out of staters might be different unless there was a cross- state standard, but there's precedent for that as well with the toll RFID: EZ-Pass. IIRC Apple stores use a similar pad-scanner system.

yup, agree. i think people will only buy the full size 10" iPad after that next year for some specific good reason. like "real work" for example, photo/video editing, and many business purposes. the mini will become the most popular consumer tablet. which is why Apple is going to maintain its typical profit margin prices for it @ $330 price.

As stylish as the new iMacs are, they seem impracticably thin so much so that they had to put the SD card reader on the back. They have totally left the Mac Pro out to pasture and screwed up the Maps app. They also abandoned a large portion of their users when ML would not boot with 32 bit kernel. Yep, sounds like a smooth running machine alright. I'm not criticizing anyone, it just seems to me that everything is sort of falling apart, like iOS 6 needing a new updater app because it couldn't update over the air. Everything is just a patchwork of temporary fixes and placeholders. I'm still upgrading to all the new products except the iPad 4 since I recently purchased the new iPad. I already have the iPhone 5 and the Retina MBP. I've been ready for a new Mac Pro for awhile and also over due for another iMac. Even with all the confusion, they still make the best stuff in my opinion.

 

Actually, they have three notebooks: Macbook Air, Macbook Pro and Macbook Pro/Retina. How are you counting six?

 

The only problem I have with the management shakeup was that it didn't happen sooner. It makes perfect sense to have both operating systems under one general manager, and I think Federighi is the best choice. Putting Ive in charge of the overall experience for all platforms also makes a lot of sense. I can only assume you believe that a management shakeup of this nature can be organised overnight. Well, I can tell that it takes time, careful negotiation and a hell of a lot of money, especially when you want to dump someone and at the same time keep them out of the hands of the competition.

 

The Mac Pro market is just not big enough to warrant as much attention as the iMac, which most prosumers are happy with. Still, the MacPro is being upgraded next year. I have no idea what it will be like, but I'm pretty sure you won't like it ... 1smile.gif

 

You say they abandoned a large portion of their users when ML wouldn't boot with a 32bit kernel. That statement can be pretty much ignored as you have no idea how many were affected.

 

Maps? Well, for every comment I read that said it was a disaster, I read at least comment that said the problems were exaggerated. I imagine the truth is somewhere in the middle.

 

And the position of the SD card? Yes, what a disaster. That'll sink 'em for sure. 1rolleyes.gif. They moved it to the back because everything else is on the back, and it keeps the lines clean. Is it a problem, well, no more than having all the USB ports on the back, and that hasn't been a deal breaker, has it?

 

You've listed a couple of small edge cases (aside from the Maps) in an attempt to justify your main beef: Apple hasn't updated the Mac Pro as promptly as you'd like. Against these small problems, you've had the successful rollout of the Mountain Lion update, the new iPhone, the new iMac, and the new Macbook Pro. The shops are doing a roaring trade and they are working very hard to dump Samsung as a supplier.

Any company of that size that doesn't have any problems is not doing anything of note.

I think that was a brilliant move by Amazon. It hides the cost of the cellular components and they get a great deal on bulk data from the carrier.

Fair enough.
 

 

Just to add a little legitimacy...

 

I have a friend who is a high-level executive at one of the major broadcast networks.   When FCP X was announced, I asked for an opinion of how it would fit into their video editing process.  I was surprised by a portion of the response (emphasis mine):

 

Quote:
"FCP is actually a powerful program but I still think iMovie does the job for most less than 10 minutes productions.  Its real value is revealed when using After Effects or Motion, integrated tight in the production.  Content is still king and video 'direction' makes a video look pro... not really the 'editing' tools in most cases.
 
If you ever travel to NY I would love to give you a tour of some of the edit suites and see how the product is integrated in the workflow.  FCP is not the main edit tool, however as a FCP fan you will see its value when connected to graphic virtual sets and tapeless video ingest servers.  Pretty amazing in capable hands.  But you will also see how simple on & off-line systems (equiv. to iMovie) does the bulk of the work."
 

 

This was referring to iMovie on the Mac, but there are instances where you are out and about and all you have is a camera and an iPad.  It is fairly simple to put together an effective, quick-turn-around short video and upload it to the web.  Things like news and sports highlights (full story on News at 11:00)... or, as others have posted, vacation highlights, personal experiences, etc.
