For some reason over time, I'm finding I'm using my iPad 3 less and less and just using the iPod touch mostly cause its too "heavy" for extended use if I'm holding it like a book. It's fine if I rest it on the bed or on my lap. I'm going to get the iPad mini 2 whenever it comes out so I may use that much more since I really prefer that size over the full size iPad.
Exact reason why I got a Mini. Especially since I'm a smoker...I often have a lit cigarette in the other hand.

I'll post a pic of my ipad mini on top of an ipad 3 or 4. I'm spending the weekend with family, and my dad's ipad looks ridiculously gigantic to me. I know the size is considered to be normal, but, with the bezel, it looks like a damn coffee table to me.

Yeah it does, been feeling this for a LONG time because where I work I carry my iPad around, and way before the iPad mini was released some colleagues bought those 7 inch Samsung Galaxy Tabs and I thought 'damn this thing is heavy and big'. I was even more surprised when I saw that the bigger iPad mini (since its 4:3 and 7.9 inch, Android tablets are 7 and 16:9 so they're thinner) fit in one of my hands well, and I have woman sized hands lol.

Lol true, only tilt game I played on the iPad was Ridiculous Fishing but only because I found it so much better on the bigger screen, it was still a pain to tilt.

For me, pretty much most games! I just prefer the size and portability of my iPhone

Agreed, I play Ridiculous Fishing on my iPad Mini and it's pretty good overall, but it feels like I could do much better on an iPhone or iPod Touch. Playing on a full size iPad, there's no way that would be a good experience.
