Apple iPad Mini. Priced at $329. Understood – Apple wishes to compete with Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and Google’s Nexus 7; but the question is – ‘Did Apple really need this one?’

I believe this is a terrible decision by Apple. And Steve Jobs if alive, would have had been extremely mad.

Before he died, former Apple CEO Steve Jobs referred to the problem in a conference call with the media, saying: “Software strategies always come first, as we know developers aren’t going to deal well with all these different-size products”. Not sure app developers would love iPad Mini at all.
