iPad mini goes on sale today -- will you be buying one?


Unless you've been hunkered in a cave for the past few weeks, you've probably heard about that new iPad mini thing. Many of you will also be aware it goes on sale this very day -- well, the WiFi-only version anyway, starting at $329 for the 16GB variant. Apple's taking its first steps into an uncharted territory, launching a 7.9-inch slate that might tempt customers who weren't keen on the 9.7-inch offering we're all familiar with. It's coming a little late to smaller-tablet game, but if history tells us anything, it's that people go crazy for Apple products. That being said, many may have already invested in tablets of a similar size when the iPad mini just wasn't an option, so might be less inclined to grab one now. Whether it'll have the staggering uptake of Apple products that preceded it remains to be seen, but we'd love to hear your thoughts on it, including if you plan to buy one or not, in the poll and comments below.
