Cracking deal

Just ordered one, fantastic price

Is this just on-line or in-store as well?

Very tempted... However can't really justify buying one!!

good deal!

This is the non retina version

Bought one via 3 in February .... Great kit

Thank you...just got one for my son's birthday...had been waiting for a good deal like this

Have some heat!

Thanks OP, ordered for daughter.

It definitely is the iPad Mini version 1 and not the Retina version. The reasons for this are :

1. The spec says it has an A5 chip. The iPad Mini Retina version has an A7 chip >

2. The price. There's no way a retina mini would be this price.

There's 2 types of mini. First one (this one) is simply called iPad Mini. The second (retina) one is called iPad Mini Retina Display.
Plus, when you look in the spec bit is says the resolution is 1024 x 768 dpi. Retina is twice that.

HTH

you are right, white one clearly mentions those details.. I was looking at black one, where there was not much detail.

This is the Retina one.

Not intrested if its not Rentina, plus i think 7" is kinda small for me , waiting for the new Ipad air to come out as in no rush, already broke one so gonna be careful with next one

Nearer 8" at 7.9.

Which should I go for, this or Nexus 7 2013 model with 16GB (£167 at amazon)?

Bought one - thank you. Heat added.

Don't own either but have just purchased the mini

Review Article that mentions comparison to Nexus build in the summary but if you read the full article it does compare both in some aspects

iPad mini - VerdictCertainly the most desirable 7-inch tablet on the … iPad mini - VerdictCertainly the most desirable 7-inch tablet on the market, the iPad mini’s £269 starting price is considerably higher than the competition but for that outlay you get a device that, although not specs superior, is a far more enticing option than much of what is already on the market.Combining a brushed aluminium back with seamlessly curved edges and a fascia that will be familiar to full-sized iPad owners, the iPad mini is a device that looks and feels every penny that you pay for it. A step on from the plastic backed likes of the Google Nexus 7, the iPad mini is unrivalled in terms of build quality and style.More than a simple piece of eye candy, however, the iPad mini is a joy to use and one which, thanks to its slightly larger 7.9-inch display is immersive and perfectly sized for a combination of business and pleasure purposes. If you have recently splashed out on a full-sized iPad 3 or iPad 4 then this might not be for you. If, however, you are looking to make the plunge into the tablet market for the first time and can live without an HD display, it’s hard to look past the new iPad mini.Read more at http://www.trustedreviews.com/ipad-mini_Tablet_review_multimedia-battery-life-and-verdict_Page-4#iwBA021gaWu8jQq8.99

you really want it to be Retina for 200 bones?

BTW
It is not I pad
It is iPad

Banned

Hot, not android

I want one!

I've got one of these and in my opinion, the ipad minis form factor is absolutely perfect for a tablet as I find 7" too small and 10" slightly too big ( oo er ! ). I did previously own a more expensive android tablet ( Asus transformer prime ) but just couldn't get along with it like I do with the Mini

I did think about upgrading to the retina display model but this does everything I want it to so can't justify the cost.

Heat for me, £199 is a good price

wow old tech for £200. Hot deal but soon to be redundant tech.

Bought one at Xmas for daughter, was 'worried' about 'old' spec...needn't have! Would highly recommend !

This every time, as above the form factor is perfect, 7" is too small.

seriously? why bother voting?

Genuine question (not a fanboy either way)

What will this iPad Mini do (at £199) that the 2012 Nexus 7 (currently at around £70-80ish) can't?

Genuinely, I have tried every tablet going, and its the user experience and the form factor, how it feels in your hands and how smooth everything is, they probably operate similarly on paper but there is no way i could read a comic on a 7", whereas the mini is perfectly formed like a small book, its tactile. If someone offered me £180 and a Nexus for mine I still wouldn't.
