''Trick-or-Treat!'' While making our yearly October 31st rounds, we came across something interesting: a brand new iPad Mini! All hopped up on sugar, we eagerly tore into Apple's first small tablet. Smaller than an iPad, larger than an iPod, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, we'd heard mighty claims about the Mini. It was finally time to crack it open and take a look for ourselves.
'''Join us live''' as we tear into this brand-spanking new device! Be sure to refresh periodically to see every new step as they roll off the press.
This iPad was delivered a bit early a ways up the road from us in Berkeley.
