Apple's rumored iPad mini will reportedly start at $329 for the Wi-Fi only version, according to a 9to5Mac report.

Apple’s smaller iPad will also come in a version that connects to cellular networks. Like the third-generation iPad, these models will come at a $130 premium over their corresponding storage capacity in the WiFi-only line. This comes out to likely minimum price points of $459, $559, and $659 for the WiFi + Cellular line…

The iPad mini is expected to be announced by Apple on October 23rd and launch in stores on November 2nd.

Are these people nuts!? You might as well just buy a "regular" iPad for this price. They should have launched with a price in the same range as the Nexus 7 / Amazon Kindle Fire HD, since they are obviously trying to compete with that market. I mean, for Christ's sake, nearly all of their products are priced the same! I'm treating myself to a new iPod Touch instead for Christmas. Thank you Apple for dashing my dreams away as I had this on my list -_____-

Apple can't and will not price said mini iPad @199 as they would be cutting their virtual wrists and they ain't about to do that to compete with google

Overpriced. It's almost the same price as the iPad 3. No way in hell that you'll find me buying this. I'll rather buy a Nexus 7.. Apple really needs to lower their prices because most blue collar hard working people are not as rich as Donald Trump. Today a 16 year old kid was stabbed in the neck 4 times and died over an iPad , I'm wondering if its worth buying any Apple products any more without someone trying to kill people for it... I don't see anyone murdering people over a Nexus, Samsung or Google product.... Just saying, is it really that worth my aggravation.?...

Dude, people are going to always kill other people for stupid, bikes, cars iPads. The price of Apple's products has nothing to do with why people kill each other. To suggest otherwise is asinine.

If you look at Apple's new product line up, you will see that they are pushing up the prices. The new itouch went up 100.00 dollars to 299.99 over the 4th gen model. And the new ipad is 499.00 compared to the ipad2 at 399.99 ( which i believe they will stop selling) So expect the mini iPad to be somewhere between the itouch and the iPad. So, 349.00 - 399.00 is possible! However, I was really hoping for 250.00 - 300.00 range which I feel would compete easier with all the other smaller tablets!

Apple didn't raise the price of the ipod, that's been it's starting price since the first one. Instead of releasing a new ipod last year they lowered it's price 100.
