AMAZING, the device is not even been announced yet and here is one of several sites/blogs hyping the product…

Six reasons the iPad Mini will be good for business
One big focus of the iPad Mini is expected to be e-books and, perhaps more importantly for Apple’s long term strategy, electronic textbooks. Apple entered the electronic or digital textbook market in January and has had some substantial purchases from private and public schools alike. One of the big criticisms of the iPad as digital textbook and learning tool is the device’s cost. Another is that the size may not be ideal for children, particularly those in elementary and middle school.
Lower price of entry for both employers and employees. A lower price point will almost certainly lead some people to consider an iPad Mini that might not consider a more expensive ten-inch iPad. Similarly, organizations that find the idea of purchasing iPads for staff or for specific use cases — POS stations, information kiosks, menus, or survey devices — cost prohibitive at todays $399 entry-level price. If Apple prices the iPad mini starting at $249 as expected, it could see the device adoption penetrate the workplace via employees and BYOD program as well as by direct purchases.

Tip on faster charging of iPad Mini…
If you bought an iPad Mini, you might have noticed that it came with the same 5w charger that Apple ships with the iPhone, instead of the 10w charger that comes with the iPad 3, 2, and 1 (the iPad 4 actually comes with a 12w charger). We’ve found that the iPad Mini, using the 5w charger it came with, takes around 3-3.5 hours to charge from 0-100%. What happens when you use the higher wattage charger? Well, it charges faster! Using the 10w iPad 3 charger, we were able to charge the iPad Mini from 0-100% in about 2.5 hours, a difference of around 25%. It’s probably not a best practice to use a higher wattage charge to juice up your tablet than what it came with, but if you’re in a pinch and need to charge your Mini as fast as possible, it probably wouldn’t hurt to use a 10w (or even 12w) charger occasionally.
