I’ve had a little play with the iPad Mini. I can see some benefit, especially when travelling, of having a smaller form factor. Interestingly, I’ve spoken to several people who have one (or have ordered one) and two clearobservations emerged:
- It’s their first iPad product (but not their first Apple product)
- The decision to buy this (rather than a full size model) was based on price. Coming in under the magic £299 mark is a big psychological win and an easier price-point for many consumers to stomach.
Finally – this is amusing and worthy of a post; if only because I suspect I’m one of the “suckers” that this mock-advert is poking fun at!
