Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

iPad 2 owners rejoice

The fact that the features of the mini are so similar to the iPad 2 means that we iPad 2 owners have a new "promise" that our devices will be supported with OS updates for a couple more years.

I too own a Nexus 7. It's a good little device. Am I envious of the new iPad mini? Not really. My Nexus 7 gives me different things. My iPad 2 gives me different things. As a user and consumer, they both suit me. I don't think I need yet another/different tablet. But next time I upgrade (2+ years from now), I'll look in the iPad mini direction first I think. The size id much more convenient in general.
