Just got my hands on an iPad Mini today to replace my iPad 3. I love it. It is much easier to carry around, is easy to hold and much lighter than the larger iPads.
Email is readable as are Office documents. Plus it has Siri and she understands my New Zealand English!
I am writing this blog while reclining on my bed. It is a very comfortable device to hold in one hand while typing with the other.
I give this little beauty a 5 star plus rating.
