Latest rumors on the Ipad mini is that the price point will be $250-$300, indicating that there will be 2 storage options (and, typically, no expandable storage). Also it's been said that it will not sport the retina display, as well. Seems to me that the retina display is one of the chief 'drawing cards' of the ipad. we'll see how it competes with the NX7. Ya know it'll be 'fanboy' euphoria!
