iPad Mini reveal!

I’m following the news this morning that Apple is reportedly releasing an iPad mini–something bigger than an iPhone or iPod Touch, but smaller than the standard iPad. This smaller device would ostensibly be cheaper than the full-size iPad–so it’s a little closer in size and price to a Kindle, interestingly enough. The buzz I’m most interested in is the education angle: if these iPads are cheaper, might large public school districts across the country see them as a cost-effective replacement for textbooks? Would our school’s iPad program be come less the exception than a new national standard? Such a huge change certainly couldn’t happen instantly, but I’m excited to see what comes up today.
