Does anyone read blogs or visit here on a mini iPad? I'm thinking of getting one for my birthday.

It's April 26th.
Do you recommend the mini iPad?

I've never had an iPad but I love my iPhone!
I just bought a new computer but the mini iPad seems like so much more fun to play on the web with.

Is it big enough to see detail on layouts on blogs and here?
Is it easy to post here?

I have a kindle fire and I am reading twopeas on it right now l

I use it for almost all of my internet browsing, here, blogs, youtube.

An iPad would be great, easy to carry around, cu4l with up on the sofa.

If I really need to see something "bigger", I can always go to my laptop. When I am at work I use my iPhone, at home my Kindle.

I do! I actually see more detail with my ipad because you can go smaller or larger to see the details.

My kids got an ipad mini for Christmas and I use it sometimes for blog reading and internet. Works fine for me. Although it's never as easy typing on ipads or phones for me, so I prefer to do it on the big computer.
But I like the mini, and the smaller screen doesn't bother me. My husband has the bigger ipad, so I definitely can compare the two

Tracie, I was one of those people who said, I don't want an iPad, I can't believe people spend that much money when they have a computer. I had the nook at the time (just as a reader). Well, my BFF took a vacation to Japan and when she returned she handed me the best gift ever...a brand new iPad (got it for $150 cheaper in Japan). Let me just say I LOVE IT, I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT IT. I rarely use my laptop or desktop now. In May it will be a year and I am still head over heels with my iPad. I love the apps, I love that it syncs with my iPhone. I love the camera, I love the versatility...can you tell that I just love it.

I just got an iPad Mini after having an iPad for years and I love the smaller size; it's so much lighter an easier to hold and I can stick it in my bag and take it anywhere. I use feedly to read all the blogs I'm subscribed to I use the browser for 2peas and it is no problem at all.

The Ipad mini is great. I use mine all the time to surf the web and watch you tube videos. What's great about the mini too is that I can hold it with one hand and it won't make my arm tired like the regular ipad would...oh yes and lying down on the couch or in bed and surfing the web or watching a movie on the mini is one of my favorite things to do. Hope this helps.

I read on my iPhone and iPad and don't have a problem with either. The iPhone can be a bit fiddly so the iPad mini would be just perfect, my daughter has the iPad mini and loves it.

I have to say I don't like using the two peas app though, hard to explain why but using the ordinary website is great

One of the best gifts my husband has ever given me is my iPad Mini that I got for my bday/ Christmas this year ( my bday is 12/16)! I use it all the time mostly for reading but I "pea" a lot with it and read my blogs on it too. You will LOVE it !

I have a mini and I LOVE It!! I use it almost exclusively for things like reading blogs, message boards, facebook, emails, etc. Now I only pull out my laptop when I am doing anything with pictures.
