Apple is risking product cannibalization with more products and price points. Most significant is the iPad Mini vs refurbished iPad 3. $50 extra is definitely worth it for the larger screen and retina display.
Agreed. They priced themselves into a corner because of the iPod Touch which definitely should have been made cheaper.

Even though everyone knew it was gonna be US$329, I was really hoping they introduce it at US$299 or US$249 even. At US$249, they would almost certainly kill the Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7, but I'm not too sure now. Even I'm on the fence whether I should get the Nexus 7 or the mini.

I hope that we can make phone call after jailbreak.. Do not mind paying JB app to make phone call and send sms... Saw the picture. You can hold the iPad mini in one hand..

Yeah.....just find it amusing the way they tried to get around it, and also how people jump to their defense.
I am sure next year Apple will release iPad mini 2 with retina display. Just another reason for people to upgrade.

I wonder if the 'slate' on the iPad mini will have the same problems as the iPhone5? Or perhaps a different manufacturing process will be used.
