    HAHAHAHAHA....that so looks like current gen Samsung phones. But you watch, Apple will claim Samsung copied them way before this POS was even released.

    Right, just like the iPad 2 couldn't of right? Instead, at a higher price point, the kindle limped along I'm compare to iPad sales. Learn your facts.

    The mini is too expensive... Here I was hoping for a cheater price. Like someone said, apple wouldn't sell it cheaper than an ipod touch...

    oh man it still has a 4:3 resolution screen?? 1024x768 means it can't even do 720p true HD (1280x720) content without scaling. Any 16:9 content will have to be scaled to 1024x576. Lame.

    At least the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 both have 1280x800 displays, so 16:9 content can be shown at 1280x720, with no scaling if it's 720p content.

    Seems a bit over priced if you ask me ... not impressed.. I'd just shell out and get a full ipad..

    If they priced it right they would wipe out the competitors completely

    Sorry Apple, you completely missed the boat on this one. $70 more then the Nexus with a ******** screen and less powerful cpu. Good luck finding someone to buy your overstock.

    Pricing seems off to me. I understand the need to price it above a ipod touch, but they should of went a bit lower with it. The ipad dominated due to a great price that no one could compete with for almost two years after it was released. Same with the macbook air, competitors are still taking a loss trying to make a ultra book that can compete.

    Not having a retnia display, a lesser processor and less ram than the competitors with a higher price. I think will hurt sales that would of been a slam dunk with a little bit better specs and price. I feel if Steve Jobs was still around this would of never seen the light of day. He was not into fragmented markets sales. This was talked about heavily in his book. I hope Apple stays on course and doesn't decide to follow market trend, but yet chooses to set the trend like have been doing in years past. I love my apple products, and wouldn't trade them for anything. But product releases like this worry me about the future of apple.

    I was thinking $249 would have been the right pride - if u were looking for a kindle for $50 more u get an iPad it's a no brainier. But $329? Def Over priced
