Rene Ritchie wraps up much of the what and why of the expected-to-be-announced-tomorrow iPad mini. Ironically, I find myself in the first stage of my own Pre-Event Sentiment Progression, in that I just don’t see what in the world I would use a smaller iPad for. It’s hard (and unfair) to speculate about the use case of a product that doesn’t even exist, but I’m going to do it anyway. I don’t see the iPad mini replacing my current iPad (3) for work use, nor do I see it replacing my Kindle Paperwhite for long-form reading. And maybe that’s the point. Maybe the iPad mini isn’t intended to be an additional device for someone like me.
