Will we see an iPad mini announced this month (or Oct)?
I personally think that a smaller tablet form factor is really the ideal size for medical professionals who want to carry these tablets in their white coat pockets. I'm mainly referring to medical students and residents who are constantly researching information and keeping track of multiple patients. Plus, there's the issue of "sign out" - when a team transfers the care of patients to another team (generally a team that will take call overnight). That transition of care is a critical step in the hospital setting.
I hope we see an iPad mini this fall. I like my current iPad, but I'm sure that I would use an iPad mini much more frequently because of its portability.
