We have multiple iPads in our household, and we are considering getting an iPad Mini to add to our stable of gadgets. How many tablets does one family need really? Between the iPad 2, the iPad 3, and the Kindle Fire and also a regular Kindle, one would think that would be enough.

Maybe just one more iPad? The iPad mini is a lot lighter and must hurt less if it were to drop on your head while in bed reading and falling asleep while holding the iPad up over your head while reading.
Did I just say that? It must have happened to someone out there. 8-)
Anyway, back to the subject at hand. Why did the "I", "pad", "mini" get the rejection? According to this article at pcmag who quoted the rejection letter:
In this case, both the individual components and the composite result are descriptive of applicant's goods and do not create a unique, incongruous, or non-descriptive meaning in relation to the goods being small handheld mobile devices comprising tablet computers capable of providing internet access. Therefore, the mark is merely descriptive of a feature or characteristic of the goods and registration is refused under Section 2(e)(1) of the Trademark Act," the letter reads.
