    Sorry Apple, you are too late and just plain 'cheap'. I will hold on to my Archos G9 101 Turbo 10.1 that I have got for £150. Am sure now Apple is going to tout on "magic" size and ideal companion in their marketing campaign. Heard them trying to promote this as a book readet - TXTR Beagle done this for £6 (batteries included) :-)

    Re: News - iPad mini pricing leaks; get the 8GB model for £200

    Anyone know if the list prices include appropriate sales taxes?

    Seriously though, an 8GB tablet? For £200? Does anyone else (big names, not chinese OEMs ) even do an entry level tablet with 8GB? Most tablets have at least 16GB now. No doubt there'll be people who'll pay the Apple tax, but I'd've thought this kind of device is more of an impulse purchase than a planned buy, and > £200 is way out of impulse buy territory for most people...

    Are we looking at the first Apple product not to sell by the bucket load?

    The mark-up on the additional flash is nothing short of absolutely disgusting.

    8GB just isnt enough! I can see it selling but i can see a lot of frustrated users coming forward. This isnt going to go as well as apple might think it will.

    Don't worry it will sell well. The excuse will be since it is "only" £200,Apple are being generous with the storage.

    Utterly utterly ludicrous.

    A fool and his money are often parted, and boy do Apple know how to entice the fools...

    300 Euros more for the 64GB version over the 8GB version (for the same connectivity)? 300 Euros?!?!?! For 56GB of storage space??! Only 6 Euros per GB!

    Re: News - iPad mini pricing leaks; get the 8GB model for £200

    I would say shame on Apple for charging so much for extra internal storage, but how many other manufacturers' devices are coming out without an (micro)SD card slot? So many companies seem to be milking consumers rather than letting them pay £41 for a 64GB card(!) Shame on everyone else for copying their rip-off tactics!

    Re: News - iPad mini pricing leaks; get the 8GB model for £200

    £80 for 8Gb!!!!! given that I just bought a 120Gb SSD for my wife's laptop for £40 I think that could safely be described a outrageous. It's not an apples-to-apples comparison but that would be a 3000% mark-up

    i don't think it will be as cheap as £200. if it is, it'll sell bucketloads. i'd expect closer to £229

    An ipad for less than an ipod touch? I don't think so somehow. £250 at the absolute minimum, maybe £300 though.

    Ridiculous prices but these will fly off the shelves, people don't care that they are only 8 gig as they will be used on the sofa and not to store music etc.
    Old puter - still good enuff till I save some pennies!
