Hilarious 'Banned' iPad Mini Promo Pokes Fun at Apple
"With all of the mini advances, you probably expect to pay more than double the price of the full-size iPad. But this amazing device is $170 cheaper on every level. Yes, you heard correct. You get more for less, minus the Retina Display and faster processor," states Darnell Johnson, playing the part of Senior Vice President.
Much of what's brought up in the spoofed ad rings true about the iPad mini, though none of it appears to have slowed initial sales by much. All forms of the iPad mini are sold out on Apple's website, which now lists a two-week wait time for 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB Wi-Fi models, and mid-November shipments for Wi-Fi + Cellular SKUs.
One of the biggest criticisms about the iPad mini is that pricing starts at $329. That's $130 more expensive than competing 7-inch Android tablets.
