Apple today announced it has sold three million iPads in just three days since the launch of its new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad - double the previous first weekend milestone of 1.5 million Wi-Fi only models sold for the third generation iPad in March.

size matters, especially to regular people who don't spend their lives playing video games and fapping to internet porn. it makes sense for apple to offer a smaller tablet to compete with kindle and the nook. a no brainer really. why complain about it, instead go back to fapping :laugh:
