iPad mini wins praise in initial "hands-on" reviews

John Cox | Oct. 25, 2012
The first slew of brief "hands on" experiences with the iPad mini - by reporters and bloggers at Apple's unveiling Tuesday - give high marks to the smaller tablet for build quality, lightness, display and performance.

The mini's starting price of $329 is considerably higher than rival products from Amazon and Google. But for a lot of buyers, that won't matter either, Segan argues. "Apple is selling this as a premium small tablet, and if anyone can pull that off, Apple can," he writes. "Apple thinks it can charge the premium for all of the well-known advantages its ecosystem has - not only the 275,000 apps, but the wide variety of accessories and the in-person support and sales experience at Apple Stores."
