[b]iPad will kick out Mini DVD player[/b]
If the iPad is just for video, all those mini DVD players on the market will take a major hit.
Portable mini DVD player was once an ideal movie playing tool for long flights and car rides with its large, high-resolution widescreen display, long battery life and light weight. Now with the arrival of iPad, with its gorgeous touch screen, 9.7-inch LED backlit IPS display, up to 720p video resolution support, 10 hours battery life, 1.5 pounds weights, Netflix, huge movie offering of the iTunes stores, etc, Apple iPad is destined to leave Mini DVD Players in the dust.
