Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) long-awaited iPad mini with retina display hit shelves earlier this week. We asked a couple of Fools to weigh in on both the product and its value proposition to customers.
Eric Bleeker initially had concerns when Apple announced the $70 price increase. However, he likes the new, thinner form factor and the retina display addition. According to third-party data, the original iPad mini outsold its larger counterpart -- Eric expects that to continue due to its convenient size.
Evan Niu sheds light on the current tablet market. It appears the tablet market is becoming a bifurcated market with Apple on the high end and Amazon's Kindle and Google's Nexus 7 on the low end "browser only" market.
Jamal Carnette worries about Apple's price point in what increasingly appears to be a "good enough" tablet market. Apple finished second to Samsung in J.D. Power's Tablet Ratings although they finished at the top of all product categories except one -- cost.
