When Apple first introduced the iPad, I thought "Hey that's kind of cool!" But I never really thought I would use it.
I have a couple of desktop computers and a MacBook Air, I figured I really didn't need the iPad. Yet, the first day it went on sale I was in line at the Apple Store buying the first gen iPad.
I bought the WiFi only version because that was all they offered on day 1.
I will say that years later, I use my iPad each and everyday. Most often when I go to bed at night, I use my iPad to surf the web, check email and see what's up on Twitter. I also read all my books on the iPad.
When I decided to take FTVLive from a pay site to a free site, I changed the way I upload stories. I could now do so from my iPad and I thought it was time for an upgrade.
I knew I wanted cellular on my new iPad, because then I could update FTVLive from anywhere and not just from a WiFi hot spot.
I then figured since I would be taking the iPad just about everywhere, the smaller the better.
I decided that the iPad Mini was the right choice for me.
It's been 3 weeks since I got my iPad Mini and I can say it was the right choice. The Mini is perfect size to let me get my work done and have a bigger screen than my iPhone.
I added a Zagg bluetooth keyboard and it's almost like having a very small laptop and I don't have to wait for it to boot up. I never turn my Mini off. The stand by time on the iPad is awesome.
The iPad Mini is much faster than my original iPad and a hell of a lot lighter.
The screen is perfect size and I love the form factor. The battery last forever and that's good thing, since there are many days I forget to charge it up.
If you're looking for an iPad, you can't go wrong with the Mini.
Good things do come in small packages.
