Have A Mini In Hand

I had to be in Seattle this morning (11/2/12) so I stopped at one of the Apple Stores to check out the iPad Mini. It's really cool. People are complaining about the lack of a retina display but that lack keeps down the price and other than watching videos I just don't see the difference. I did check out a video on the Mini and the new full sized iPad with retina display and it's true that the full sized has a sharper image. But I don't watch videos on an iPad so it's a moot point for me.

The size is perfect for reading and even navigating the I'Net. "Thumb" typing was easier than I thought it would be and I got the hang of it quickly. So I'm heading back to the peninsula with a Mini which I'll bring to next week's SMUG meeting.
