I'm not surprised where they stand. They don't deserve to be above Google, that's for sure. I love Apple, but right now Google is being way more innovated. Apple needs to step it up a bit. They've been moving too slowly lately.

I'm getting the iPad 2 for Christmas. However, it was only $299 on Black Friday, which was the big selling point for me. I wouldn't have gotten an iPad at all if it weren't for the sale price. I have a Nexus 7 so I wasn't interested in the Mini at all, and the Air is too pricey for me. I just needed some sort of iPad. I have 3 iPods, an iPhone, and MacBook, so it was the last step. Well besides the Apple TV...

I feel like there hasn't been much of any innovation by major tech companies like Apple, Microsoft, Google, and Samsung. And that's cause these companies are spending too much time in the courtroom arguing over existing technology. Props to Microsoft for trying to innovate (with Windows 8 and tablets). Even though they were terrible ideas, at least they're attempting to switch it up, unlike all the other tech companies.

I'll try out the tablet version on my Nexus 7. But I wouldn't even want it on my iPhone. I have an app for Facebook and a way to post from notification center. That's enough for me personally. I think it's ridiculous Facebook already has a Messenger and Camera app in the App Store. I can send messages from the regular app and can take pictures with my built in app. Why the need for all this Facebook crap in the way?

@CallChrisNow True. But VM has the iPhone too. They're making it like this is the first iPhone carrier to throttle speeds. I'm still laughing at the title though. It's not capped, it's throttled. And having "Ouch!" in the title makes the blog look immature (so to speak) in my opinion.

This just shows how ridiculously priced Apple stuff is though. Amazon takes a loss selling the Kindle Fire at the price they do. I'm not saying Apple's products aren't worth what they sell them for, cause you get what you pay for. But in the case of mini tablets, I'd still go with the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire over the iPad Mini.

I have a feeling that Apple will release it for $200-$250 and take less than a 30%-50% profit just to completely take over the entire tablet market. I don't think it will be more successful than the Nexus 7 or Fire if it's more than $250.
