a charging gorilla in the city?
And if that's so, I've decided that the Mini's display must be good enough for me also, because it has the same number of pixels in a smaller frame, so it's sharper. (And they surely improved it in other ways too.)
On another subject, I can't believe it took them so long to make a smaller iPad. The iPhone is really too small for serious use of any kind except phoning. It's sole raisin daitre (as it were) is that it fits in a pocket. And the regular iPad is great for home use and serious use, but for casually going out, it's too big and heavy.
A 300-gram seven-inch tablet on the other hand, that fits in my cargo pocket (never buy pants without at least one), so I just pack it when I go out and forget about it, until I want to read or watch something. Back when I used read on paper, it was not easy to find a book or magazine which fit in a pocket.
And it fits in any purse. (If you have a purse it doesn't fit in, I want you to think about whether you're selecting purses based on use or on fashion...)
Update Fri 26.10:
All righty, I ordered a white 32GB model this morning. They say two weeks delivery time (UK), but this could quickly become longer, if it's as popular as they tend to be.
