What if releasing the iPad Mini, or any product for that matter with the highest possible specs at the time was too costly to keep the product in a competitive market alongside products that it was built to compete against (i.e. other small tablets)? Would your opinion change? I don't think you are taking every business and marketing decision into account here. Not to mention the fact that the iPad mini's pixels are smaller than an iPad 2 and not that much different than an iPad 3 or 4. (http://gizmodo.com/5956276/the-ipad-...-to-the-ipad-2
