I currently have an iPad 2 that I use with a Zagg Folio bluetooth keyboard / case and I love it but my wife is showing interest in my current one but does not want me to buy her a new one. I am thinking of getting the iPad 4 because of the retina display, great for what I want to use it for and the added power over the 2 will make it a little more future proof for me. Not worried about the added weight as I use is with the keyboard nearly all the time when at work so that is not a factor for me. But I am also interested in the mini to use as an e-book reader and the usual messages, email and a little web browsing. Also for me I am wanting to use the mini as my satnav with my Tomtom app as I am using my current ipad but it is a little too big and the iphone is a little too small as I use it my my truck. I know that some people are going to say that this is a waste to have 2 ipads but I do feel that the mini fills the gap for me nicely between the iphone and larger ipad and I love my apple products!!
