Apple’s iPad mini has already enjoyed a fair bit of success. Apple refused to separate opening weekend sales figures into different camps for different-sized tablets, but 3 million probably says there’s at least a few of the minis leaving the store shelves.

Sony’s got a track record for doing adverts rather well. Its Bravia ads in particular are pretty awe-inspiring. You know the ones with the bouncing balls and the exploding paint? Yeah. That.
