IPad mini

This is my first test from an iPad Mini. The regular case is a bit slippery so I have to be careful not to drop it. The keyboard is only big enough to type with one finger.

It’s almost small enough to use like an iPhone keyboard with thumbs but a bit too wide for that.

We’ll see if iPad Mini specific apps start to come out. My wife says, “It’s an iPad, it already has apps.” But I think having this smaller form factor will allow the Mini to be used for things like a GPS device where the iPad is too big to use and an iPhone is too small to review safely while driving.

I spent all day doing precinct walking and could have used something other than an iPhone to reach the dozens of addresses.

So far, I’m liking this gizmo and now it’s time to get a cover for it.

Let me know if you have any questions about the device and I’ll get back to you,
