    Apple has been slacking on their secret-keeping ways since Steve was around. ok sure the iPhone in the bar thing was embarrassing but this particular even was a pretty bad-kept secret. Also the vid of the iphone 5 booting up is just as bad.

    On another note, I think this iPad mini is gonna be one of Apples biggest mistakes over the past couple of years. All it's gonna do is cannibilise their current iPad sales and it's gonna be a nightmare for developers to have to code for so many different screen configurations.
    Can someone enlighten me why they would buy the 7.85incher over the beautiful 10.1 incher? With more than double the resolution and do doubt better processor, RAM and other internals?

    @captainawesome assuming the rumors are correct, the iPad mini will have a screen resolution of 1,024-by-768 pixels, which is the same as the iPad 2. In other words, iPad app developers would have to code for the same two screen configurations that they already code for.

    I took a survey a week ago, and an add saying "Win a free iPad Mini by signing up today!" popped up. I thought that they were lying. D***. But The product is a joke, why make it 1.85 inches less? That really sounds like that they (Apple) are running out of ideas. I always preferred Androids over Apple...
