This Is the Real iPad

Dan Frommer spent his first weekend with the iPad Mini:

With the exception of screen sharpness, everything about it is better than the bigger, “classic” iPad — and screen sharpness won’t be a deal breaker for the vast majority of people. […]

The big question, which I won’t know the answer to for a few weeks or months, is how the iPad mini will fit into my gadget routine. Where will I use my iPhone instead of my iPad mini if I have both? Where will I bring my retina iPad?

Like the screen sharpness issue, I don’t see this as being a deal breaker. Jimmy Kimmel’s fake iPad Mini ad tackles it, too, but I don’t see most people as purchasing both an iPad and an iPad Mini. I laughed pretty hard at that ad, though.
