Re: Not surprised
Thank you for sharing your experience.
I'm very intrigued to see how Apple decides to roll this out. I do agree that the portability of the Ipad Mini is one of it's biggest selling points (and why many folks are happy with it). But sadly when you have to answer to stakeholders, they want more sales, more sales, more sales.
Also, and you've pointed out, you've only had two tablets, not a new one every year. This is the sentiment accross the board that consumers aren't purchasing a tablet every 6 month, or aren't more willing to upgrade their tablets they way the upgrade phones (my personal opinion is that for smarphone you can trade in and get credit/cash, but for tablets you have to go through the re-sale process, which not everyone is willing to do)
