Thanks GaryMcCray, for the kind of information I kind of expect from IW.. but... lately they seem afraid to be definitive (incapable?) .. appreciate your comments.

As predicted Apple introduced the 16 gb IPad Mini for $329.00 with hundred dollar price increments for each size larger.

The IPad Mini also as predicted is a carbon copy of the IPad 2 only smaller with a low 1024 x 768 resolution display and an improved camera.

At $329.00 the Mini is very non-competitive with the $200.00 16 gb and $250.00 32 gb Amazon HD Fire

And on October 29th the Google Nexus 7 tablets will eliminate the 8 gb version and replace it with a 16gb version for $200.00 and introduce the new 32 gb version for $250.00 and they will also have a 3G version available.

Both the Amazon Fire HD and the Google Nexus 7 have excellent App availability and support and have HD displays.

A 32 gb WiFi only IPad Mini costs $429.00, a 32 gb HD Fire or Nexus 7 costs $250.00

It does not seem that the Mini is going to be a strong influence in the 7" tablet market.

On the other hand, the "Even Newer" Generation 4 full sized IPad features a considerable improvement in performance over the now old "New" IPad and also has it's excellent "Retina" ultra high resolution display.

Even at $170.00 more, the full sized 4th generation IPad represents a much better value than the Mini in all configurations.

Realistically, if you want an IPad (and can afford one) get a Gen 4 IPad, otherwise get a Fire HD or a Nexus 7.

(Skip the Mini).
