Everything You Need to Know About the iPad Mini

When the iPad Mini was first announced, some investors were skeptical. "Oh, great," they thought, "Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) is bringing out a 7-inch tablet just because (Nasdaq: AMZN  ) and Google (Nasdaq: GOOG  ) both have one. Will it even be any good compared with these companies' products that are already established in that space?"

But it's more than good. In this segment, Motley Fool analyst Eric Bleeker tells us why he sees the iPad Mini not only as the best 7-inch tablet on the market right now, but also as the best tablet, period. He takes us through why he thinks it will far outpace the larger iPad in the next few years, and why investors should see the premium price of the iPad Mini as a blessing, not a curse.

The release of the iPad Mini has been huge for Apple, but it's not the company's only blockbuster release. The introduction of the iPhone 5 was hotly anticipated by Apple investors for months. The stakes continue to be high and the opportunity huge, so to help investors understand this epic Apple event, we've released an exclusive update dedicated to the iPhone 5 launch. By picking up a copy of our premium research report on Apple, you'll learn everything you need to know about the launch, and receive ongoing guidance as key news hits.

    If you are going to round to the nearest inch, the iPad Mini is MUCH closer to 8 inches than to 7 inches. This makes a 30% difference in screen size, a significant difference. Why is it sooooo hard for the media to get this right? Stop classifying the iPad Mini with the other smaller tablets. It only confuses and misleads prospective buyers. (And yes, I know you are recommending the Mini here, but you should still get it right from the beginning and throughout.)

    come on people, how do you expect MF to generate revenue? they are desperate for growing the business so they have to market, market, market! unfortunately, that means we have to keep getting sucked into these ads they pull off as articles.

    MF have become what they set out to destroy! Using such slimy, very sneaky ways to suck in loyal readers and subscribers (ex) is really low. Guys, just let us know up front what is paid content and what is not. don't be vampire squids!!!!

    The iPad mini is the best small tablet and has already sold millions in the first month. Funny how all the initial naysayers were wrong. Like the iPod, Apple does not have to be the first product of its type but it is the best product.
