Oddly enough I think the mini will either be an outstanding success at the expense of the bigger tablet or people will look at it and get the bigger tablet especially if its priced too high.
On the other hand, if its priced in the Android range then people will look at those due to the functionality. From a psychological view, spending money on a lower priced mini when you get the same apps on the bigger model might sway people into the view of value for money aspect of not buy it.
I also think that it may be a product too far as the i-range is getting crowded: ipod - iphone - ipad for the same functionality.
I have a Playbook which I'm happy with:media player and browser that is perfect for travelling plus a decent MS Office viewer/editor. For a 64GB at £129 you can't argue! Not overly concerned with apps but then if I want to do serious stuff, then the Microsoft Surface Pro is where I'm looking.

Personally I can't justify the price or the need for an ipad but may well be tempted by the mini if it's reasonably priced.
