Senior VP of iOS Scott Forstall is out at Apple: why, and what it means.
Most people don't know who Scott Forstall is. But to those who do, he's something of a demigod. If the future of mobile is software, and Apple is the company in pole position, then Forstall, Senior VP of iOS, is arguably the guy driving and defining the future. And as of today, he's officially out at Apple.

"... new standard for small tablets?"
What's with the hyperbole in the email that just came out? iPad mini - lower screen resolution and lower processor specs with a higher price. How is this setting a new standard. Don't get me wrong, I own an iPad v2 (and plan on upgrading to the new iPad as soon as it's available) and I have a Nexus 7. I find myself grabbing the Nexus 7 more often than the iPad. gdgt - I didn't realize you were such a fanboy - thought you took a more level thoughtful at analyzing products.

Is what the pundits will say. I can't wait to hear about how apple reinvented the 7" tablet market while aggressively innovating by releasing the ipad4 six months after the ipad3 came out. Look for the ipad mini HD in 6 months.

The ipad mini is like a nexus 7....with a lower res screen.....and slower processor....and slower gpu.....and half the storage.....for $100 more....WINNING!

I think I'd rather have an iPhone 5 over an iPad Mini
As with all Apple events, I immediately wanted the new iPad mini, but after the initial adrenaline rush wears off (as happens with all of these), I realize I think I'd rather have an iPhone 5, even with the service contract, than an iPad mini. I have my iPad 3, and can't figure out when I'd pull out the mini over the iPad 3.

Still waiting
Overpriced for the screen quality. However I had a nexus 7 and didn't enjoy it as much as I thought because of the App situation, which won't be an issue on the iPad Mini. I won't buy the iPad Mini however due to lack of retina. Guess I'm still waiting for a good around 7 inch tablet... maybe Google will have an answer next week?
