Dixons in selling out-of-date kit shocker!
Who'da thunk it?
Our generous gift of the oxygen of publicity today goes out to Dixons, which this morning forecast that Brits will be able to buy not only Amazon's Kindle Fire but also a "mystery" Apple product by Christmas. Not exactly staggering leaps of the imagination, you might reasonably think, given the flood of rumours concerning the …
It will be the origional Fire sold here, Amazon have a load in stock after the inicial sales and will offload them here whilst the Fire 2 will be US only.....
As for the iPad mini, sorry but unless its really cheap, ie Nexus 7 range thn I don't think it will sale as it woun't look worth too much next to a full size ipad in the store....
I'd buy an iPad mini, at a similar price to a regular iPad. The form factor is valuable to me. If Apple's research says that the form factor is important to others, and that they will gain more in additional sales than they lose in those who would have bought a full-size iPad, they will be ahead.
I can't put my iPad 1 in my pocket. I won't buy an iPad 3 because it is too big, I won't buy an iPod touch / iPhone because it is too small, and the apps I need aren't available on Android.
OK I'll bite as it has been a slow, damp day in hades.
What use would any of these things have? OK the iWhatever is supposed to make even more money for the company that already has too much money.
The rest are trying to get a bit of the free dosh as they think it is only fair.
What mystifies me is what does anyone use the things for except to show off? An empty box is almost that good, its lighter, costs less and you can put useful stuff into an empty box.
Don't tell me I could sit in front of a 23inch PC screen waving the silly toy about saying it is nearly as big, or sit in front of a 42inch TV thinking it is almost as big and useful as the TV. Trying to use it while driving is plain stupid, so, what use would a thing like these mini screens be?

You may very well be right about the smaller form factor iPad, but isn't it *much* more likely to be the new iPhone - since *that* is definitely on it's way - rather than the 'rumoured' teeny-iPad?
