Most new-device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review.
Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity.
For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s follow-up coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not many people revisit the device to see how it feels a few weeks or months later, because everyone’s already focused on the next big deal coming down the pipe.
So let’s do something about that. Let’s see how we feel about devices when they’re not shiny and new anymore. This is After The Buzz.
The iPad mini is the tablet that many of us were waiting for, up until it got released. Not because we were finally able to buy it, but because it really didn’t meet all of our expectations. Surely it’s a good tablet, but it’s hard to judge it as a great one for many reasons. So, how has the iPad mini held-up to some real world use after a couple of weeks since it was released? Join us for Episode 13 of After The Buzz, and be sure to share your experience in the comments down bellow.
Our apology for the timing due to some technical difficulties.
