Some branches have decided to offer an exchange of a shiny new iPad mini for a full-sized new iPad bought in the last month, but swapping is done at the discretion of individual stores. It's not an official company-wide policy, so check with your local Apple Store before demanding swapsies. The standard returns period is 14 days, so if you bought your iPad in the last two weeks you can take it back and swap it anyway if the siren song of the iPad mini is too strong, or if you want to try 4G. The iPad mini and the new, revamped full-sized iPad both work with the UK's first 4G network, which is launched by EE in less than a week.
CNET first reported the possibility of pulling the ol' swithcheroo at the Stockton Street store in San Francisco, Would British Apple Stores be so keen to exchange one tablet for t'other?

No joy there then, but bear in mind that's barely a few minutes after the Apple Store opened this morning, and the policy could change. We'll keep you posted with more official word when we get it. The iPad mini sports a 7.9-inch display, smaller than the current iPad's 9.7-inch screen -- and it's skinnier to boot. But many CNET readers are disappointed with the mini, and don't think it has the chops to take on the substantially cheaper Android-powered Google Nexus 7. Will you stick with your iPad -- or twist with the iPad mini? Is your local Apple Store willing to swap? And does it matter if your new gadget is quickly replaced by a new version, or do we deserve to know our new kit is the latest thing for a set length of time?

On our Facebook page, we posted a poll asking which you think is the better tablet. "I would have the iPad mini simply because of the wealth of apps for it," says Valerie Beeby -- but Valerie's in the minority, as the Nexus 7 is the clear winner with more than three times as many votes as the new iPad mini. "It's got to be the Nexus 7," says Russell Shevlane. "Sorry Apple: you will have to be a lot more innovative and cheaper to lure McGee away from Android!""The iPad mini is over-priced and the Kindle Fire too locked down," says Mark Edwards. "Nexus is the winner, and this coming from someone who owns an iPad 3."Many CNET readers are unimpressed with Apple's latest offering. "Where's the retina display?" wails Graham Oliver. "768x1,024 is so last decade." Trevor McElroy bemoans the price: "£100 more than it should be.. no thanks.""So Apple have gone all guns blazing to annihilate the Nexus 7 by producing.. something less powerful with an inferior screen at a much higher price?" mocks Tim Austin. "Methinks they missed the point of a 'budget' tablet." Wethinks you may be right, Tim.
