David Sparks on which iPad he is getting:
The only difference at this point is that one is nearly 10 inches and one is nearly 8 inches. With this as the only deciding factor, for a lot of people this will make the decision really easy. They will know immediately whether they want a large one or the small one.
That’s a great way to look at it. Personally I think I may get a 32GB iPad Air with Cell and a 16GB iPad Mini (retina) with cell — like Sparks there is a lot of value in having both.
Hopefully sanity prevails and I just get the iPad Air — I think I can make my current mini last another year.
