The iPad mini will be free: here’s why

The iPad mini will be free: here’s why

In a world where the cost of some technology is hotly debated and is completely dismissed for others, it only makes sense that Apple would release the iPad mini for free. I wrote a column back before the iPhone 4S was release called Why the iPhone 4S will be free - turned out it wasn't the iPhone 4S that ended up being free, but the iPhone 3GS - and that was indeed the first time any iPhone was offered up for free in a sales structure that remains today (with the iPhone 4 in that position at the moment).

iPad 2 : an Apple 2011 Retrospective

The past 365 days have been, without a doubt, the Year of the iPad 2, and as you're about to see, this includes more than just great sales and undeniable attention from both consumers and developers the same. It all started in March as the Apple iPad 2 went on sale. Of course we pre-struck with an early What should I get guide and a few reviews of the device itself by our head writers. We had rather interesting (and telling) results in a poll from March asking if people would be buying an iPad 2, and an article also all the way back in March foretold much on how it's so hard to compete with the iPad.
