A week from tomorrow (10/23) Apple will be announcing the iPad Mini tablet. At least that’s the rumor. A reliable rumor, but until it happens, it’s still a rumor. So here’s my question for you. Do you plan to buy the iPad Mini as soon as you possibly can? Will you stand in line for one? Back before the original iPad was announced, my wish list for the iPad resembled what we’ve been seeing of the leaked iPad Mini. Back then I didn’t want a 10″ tablet. I thought that size was way too big and bulky. But then the iPad came out, I bought one and fell in love with it. Since that time, I’ve had a few 7″ tablets. I bought the first Kindle Fire, the first color Nook and more recently the Google Nexus 7. The Kindle Fire and color Nook seemed lame to me because they lacked the official google play store. But even after playing with the Nexus 7, I found that I prefer a tablet with a 10″ screen and those tablets I just mentioned have gone totally unused (except for the Google Nexus 7, which I sent to Ian to review). This makes me wonder if I’ll like the iPad Mini or if it will end up in a drawer with my other tablets with android. Since switching to a Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone from an iPhone 4S, I’m happily using Android. If the iPad Mini is nothing more than a miniature iPad, I think it’s going to bore me just as much as the iPhone 5 has. Maybe I’ll skip it too and get a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 instead.
