Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray believes that Apple will sell between a million and 1.5 million iPad minis over the tablet’s launch weekend. This is a modest number should be increased when when 4G version of the tablet releases later in November.

Munster believes consumers will appreciate the ability to use the iPad mini with one hand and the enhanced portability the smaller form factor offers. “Consumers will gradually realize the benefits of the smaller form factor, which will drive adoption, although it may not take form in lines for tomorrow’s launch,” Munster wrote.
