  • iPad mini Ad Impressions Grow 28% Per Day as Device Outperforms Kindle's Release


    According to a study tracking device impressions within the first month of a productís sales, Millennial Media saw the iPad mini net a daily growth of 28%, beating out Amazonís Kindle Fire which saw a 19% daily growth rate over the same period last year.

    Similar to what happened in 2011, itís likely that many electronic devices are being gifted during the holidays. Despite many iPad minis still waiting to be unwrapped, the initial user base has already made an impact on the advertising firmís platform. According to Matt Gillis, the SVP of Global Monetization Solutions at Millennial Media ďEvery holiday season there seems to be one particular item that stands out as the 'must have gift' of the year, and in 2012, early figures lead us to believe that this could be the iPad mini. Truth be told, donít tell my kids but there are already two sitting under our tree at home."

    The firm is expecting the overall number of tablet-using consumers to increase significantly without cannibalizing sales of other tables. Citing a previous Nielsen report, the ad company notes a strong interest from children for both the full size iPad and iPad mini, illustrating the smaller tablet is more likely to add new users than take away from an existing potential user base. One of the other takeaways from the miniís strong performance is consumer demand for tablets of multiple sizes. The firm sees the success of the iPad mini as confirmation of high interest from users looking for portable devices of various sizes.

      My wife, who never cares about tech wants the Mini. I literally had to take her 3G iPhone away from her recently so I could force her to upgrade. She doesn't care about retina or stuff like that. She hates the iPad actually. But a couple weeks ago, we went to the Apple store to pick up my repaired retinaMBP( the screen went bad) and while I was with the Genius, she just happened to pick up the Mini. That was it, now she keeps hinting. I hate knowing I'm going to have to have to buy one for her for Christmas when Apple released such an inferior product.

      I am hoping that next iPad will follow the factor of the Mini/iP5. I think it looks soooo sexy.

      I dont know why you think the mini is inferior. I bought a Nexus 7 and an ipad mini. I brought the Nexus back in a week. The mini is so superior! I LOVE the mini. I keep it on me all the time now in my left inside coat pocket it just fits! I can slide it into my back jeans pocket! I got a case for it but i dont bother. I have my ipad up for sale since I do not use it anymore.

      Inferior may not be the correct word. However, it has an older processor, nor retina. Those 2 factors really affect what makes the iPad valuable to me. It doesn't matter,I am buying it for my wife.

      I bit the bullet today and bought my wife the 32 gig black Mini. I got it on the local military base and I had a coupon so I paid 370 out the door. For that price I am very happy. I will say that after playing with it, it isnt bad at all.
