The price point for the 7" err more closer to 8" tablet will be $399. If you look at Apple's products: iPhone-$199.99, iPod Touch-$299.99, and the iPad-$499.99, the missing price point is $399.99.
You could be right, but I sure hope you're wrong.
They actually do have a $399 product ATM. The non-Retina iPad 2. So unless
the iPad Mini is Retina, might be hard for them to justify charging the same $399 for a smaller non-Retina device.
There is no way Apple will undercut selling the iPod touch by offering it a similar price point or one that is below it.
Different market segments, IMHO. Desire for pocketability vs. desire for screen size. Also at $299, the iPod Touch is 32GB. I think a 32GB iPad mini will cost $399. Just my .02.
