The iPad mini is starting to seem like a lock, as we already seemed to have locked down the 7.85-inch 1,024-by-768-pixel display. But, what will the base price of this thing be? Will Apple try to hit Google and Amazon’s $199 price points or will Apple’s historically huge margins get in the way? Will Apple’s iCloud help keep its storage requirements down? Will Apple include some iTunes credit as Google and Amazon do? Keep in mind: the new 4-inch Retina iPods start at $299. Tell us what you think (we should have more information shortly).
