I flew down to San Jose yesterday to watch Apple’s introduction of the iPad mini, but more importantly, to get some hands-on time with the new device before it arrives next week. I like it, and will be ordering one when pre-orders begin on Friday. Read about my experience using the iPad mini in the Seattle Times: “iPad mini looks like a good fit.”
Also, a bit of fun. Here’s a photo (taken by Macworld’s Dan Moren) of me and Apple CEO Tim Cook shortly after he appeared to do a photo op in the demo room. I asked him if the build process for the iPad mini is the same as the iPhone 5. He said it’s similar.
