Ya I think so... I saw a commercial that looked neat but I don't remember when it comes out.

If you like the Android format, the Galaxy Note has a bigger screen. I'd seriously consider it but think it may be hard to fit in my pocket when I'm out walking. I'm hoping that prices go down on the bigger screen Note tablet too-- the 10 inch one that allows for multitasking on the tablet.

The Galaxy SIII is out now and larger than the SII. I have the SII and my wife the SIII and the SIII is a beautiful device to look at and use. Or like Dallas Gold mentioned, the Note is even larger, but I have not seen one in person.

Today I played the Microsoft Surface in the mall - not bad! You can use USB too that is better than mini ipad ! The photo I took for myself is also quite clear... I hated or not used to the keyboard though....

But I want apple too!

And I love my Samsung!!!

So many temptations out there.

I know the Note - but afraid about the pen.... easy to break

Wink macbook pro or macbook air

I was in the apple store - to check the mini ipad...

Now... I found ipad 2 is worth better than mini ipad - bigger screen and with retina to use too. So I passed mini ipad for now.

Then I am thinking about ipad 2 / and now I got introduce to air and pro....

With air or pro - you get a notebook computer why not! So I passed ipad 2 now.
It is so tempting to get Mac products!!!!

I think sooner or later I may become all about apple

I'm not too impressed with the mini, I was thinking about getting my wife one,but I think she will stick with her current tablet, she has the Samsung Tab 10.1 now. As far as the retina display, imo its all just word hype. All a "retina" display is, is a higher then average ppi or pixel per inch.

When it comes to tablets or anything that you are really close to ppi is the name of the game. The higher the ppi the better the picture. I actually like Apple products, I plan on getting my wife the Iphone 5 next month. I will probably follow suit, however imo the ipad mini is laughable from a spec standpoint.

The only thing it has going for it is build quality, and boy do you pay for it. You can get a better tablet in almost every category for over 100 dollars less in the Nexus 7. It has 216 ppi compared to 163 on the mini. If you already have an Ipad I would question why you would want a mini, its an inferior product, if you want the smaller tablet, but want to stay apple, I would hold out for next year when they actually make it worth buying.

Steve Jobs would be very displeased, just saying.

I just ordered DH a mini iPad for Christmas. He has a 1st generation iPad now and loved the mini at the Apple Store. He takes it on the road with him so the lighter/smaller tablet will be nice for him. I have the 2nd generation and even that's much lighter than his. Delivery time is 2 weeks.

I added the iPhone 5 to my collection this week. For those considering it as well, let me just say...I'm in love. *sigh*
