So Apple creates 4 products (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad and now iPad Mini), all nearly identical visually and in functionality, and releases a new product almost yearly with the only major difference being that they are slightly thinner. And this shit sells? Damn, people must be crazy to buy these products almost every year considering the price of their stuff.

Either they have too much money to spend or are straight up delusional.

Every other company is doing the same.They're also faster, and occasionally get a resolution upgrade, and storage upgrade.

But it's gonna be funny watching apple deal with the flack of releasing a new iPad 6 months? after the last one.

the new ipad is the most redundant though. The previous one was just 6 months ago. an upgrade so soon?? Why? Slap in the face to their customers.

And good job comparing with the Nexus 7, when you failed to mention that ipad mini has shiitty resolution, and costs $350? and the Nexus is only $200.

For 8gb. I think it's expandable though right? I think I remember reading that. I may be wrong.

But for the 16gb its 249. A LOT of people are going to be willing to pay that 70 bucks for the apple logo. Especially with the way Apple utterly dominates the tablet market.

Are you willing to pay the difference in price, for a great bookstore, continuous software updates, good tech support (which does happen with android as well), the logo (which is funny, but we both know it counts), and knowing that you probably have the best tablet on the market? Generally people are going to go iPad way when you take that into consideration.

The only tablet that's really gotten into Apple's market is the Kindle Fire. And that's the only reason why they released a 7 inch tablet. To make sure they don't lose people to that market who think the 7 inch is better.

Personally, I was shocked Apple directly went off after the nexus in that way. That's usually not their style, in the post-Jobs world. Hell, aside from the thermo-nuclear war comments it's not really been done a lot in such a clear manner.

edit: it is expandable http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-31747_7...indle-fire-hd/

What does an iPad or any tablet for that matter, do that my cell phone doesn't do?
