I had hopes for the iPad mini but the monitor sucks and it is just a tad too big so I bought a new Touch instead. It would have been really nice if the Apps transfer had been a bit smoother though.

It has a much better camera as evidenced by the following. For some reason Fi thinks that the wooden box makes a good pillow.
