Well it makes a lot of marketing sense in that the Kaoss Pad Mini has more or less a feature subset of the full size Kaoss Pad. That means features left out are still ripe for another unit . Any brand new features only help sell the new unit and then later can be sold again inside the KP4 if they decide to make one. And those who really like this new unit will wind up picking up a KP4 when it comes out because it will be much more deluxe than this onebandreject wrote:Making new product with new features, and packing it in a design used by a machine considered "cheaper version of something" is a marketing suicide.crystalmsc wrote:hmm, that looks photoshoped to me, but the idea is hot!

What companies learned in the 1980s was, even though a very innovative technology can change the playing field, what really sells and keeps development costs down are a lot of tried and true features with just enough new ones to sell mostly the same thing a second, third or 10th time.
