In the following video, technology analysts Eric Bleeker and Andrew Tonner discuss their initial thoughts after a weekend spent using the iPad Mini. While Eric says reviews criticizing the tablet's screen are on point, he notes that the iPad's hardware is well in front of the competition. Not only is the build quality of the iPad superior to those of its rivals, but the iPad's larger screen size is a key advantage as well.

As Eric sees it, investors doubting the iPad Mini are underestimating its potential as a consumption-oriented peer to the larger iPad. The device should be a hit across the holiday season.
