I left my iPad mini on my jet -- I've looked everywhere -- under the bed, behind seats, in the bar -- if only it fit in my pocket!

I have a very thin leather folio cover form my mini that, as a side benefit, solves the "thumb on screen" holding issue.  It also supports the "close cover to sleep" feature that I like.

The full size iPad has a nice large bezel so you can hold it with one hand without actuating the multi-touch screen

It's sorely missing from the mini. Unless you have monster hands like the guy in the poster, you don't have an iPhone-like grip on the thing, you're stabilizing with your thumb, and the area provided to do so is minimal and only at the bottom.

I actually find the iPad to be way more awkward to hold as it requires two hands. The mini I can hold in one hand and use the other to browse

So nobody finds the iPad mini uncomfortable to hold. I've heard that it is an awkward size, in comparison with other small tablets.
