The iPad mini is defenetly coming, because it is ideal for the school/children's/education market:

- children fingers are smaller, in relation to child size iPad is 'large'
- schools are poor = smaller price makes it more likely that schools use apple iPad

I hope this iPad mini will come in more than two colors.
