I think I may finally upgrade my iPad 2 to a mini. I thought the mini was f'ing stupid until I bought my gf one to replace her kindle - it's a much better size for travel than the original. With updated specs and LTE it's a no-brainer.

Purely speculating based that image and what little I've read about it, it will probably tether to your iPhone via bluetooth and you will dictate to it via Siri rather than a keyboard. Seems like it'd be good at about 50% of what most of us use our phone for. Probably the biggest problem is Siri is far from foolproof when it comes to dictation. But I bet it will pair with the bigger screen iphones that are coming next year quite well. People always talk about phones like the Note as if they're too big to be used as a phone, this would let you keep it in your pocket unless you needed to surf the web, watch a video or play a game.

while it is a pretty neat mock up, I doubt we'll see anything of the sort today.

Guess I'll be selling my Gen 3 for a Gen 5 since ios 7 has slowed it down tremendously.
