ACS Industrial Services Discusses Practicality of iPad Mini

As Apple Fans Await the Release of the New iPhone 5, Many Consumers Are Expressing Concerns About the Practicality of Another New Apple Product -- the iPad Mini; Expert Electronics Repair Company, ACS Industrial Services, Weighs in on This New Device

HUNT VALLEY, MD -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Throughout the evolution of smartphones and mobile devices, consumers have voiced their opinions on the variety of features that leading products offer. This response has led many prominent companies, such as Apple, to continue upgrading its successful iPhone device and iPad tablet product. Although many analysts expressed doubt regarding the success of the iPad, consumers found that the larger, touch-screen interface and application versatility made for a strong product. A recent article from Information Week reveals that Apple now has plans to release an iPad mini, but consumer surveys have shown that the product could be "pointless." ACS Industrial Services has worked in electronic repairs for over ten years, and offers its opinion on the new device.

Although the products have yet to be released, the article refers to a survey conducted by CouponCodes4u, in which 1,873 American consumers were asked which device was more desirable: the iPhone 5 or the iPad Mini. Nearly 77 percent of the respondents already owned some version of the iPhone, and only 22 percent noted that they would prefer the iPad Mini over the iPhone 5. The article anticipates that a similar survey taken after the products enter the market would provide more valuable data regarding the practicality of each product.

ACS Industrial Services responds to these findings, by stating that the success of the product really comes from individual consumer demand. As the article points out, the iPhone 5 may not be desirable if it is not vastly improved compared to the iPhone 4. Likewise, the benefits of the iPad Mini have not been described in detail, and some consumers expect that it will simply be a smaller version of the iPad with no additional features -- for those that already own iPads, the miniature device may prove ineffective.

Having witnessed the evolution of mobile devices firsthand, ACS Industrial Services cautions users before committing to purchasing a new product. In a recent press statement, ACS Industrial Services responds to the survey, "One should really consider their electronic communication needs and goals before jumping at buying an iPad Mini. Keep in mind that it is easy to fall for the beautiful and convincing advertising for these products. ACS Industrial Services suggests that consumers make a list of pros and cons before running out to get in line for the next coolest electronic gadget. Some consumers may find that they really will benefit from this purchase, or, more likely, they will find that their current model is sufficient for now and keep some cash in their wallet."
