The more people spend time with the iPad Mini, the more they love it, it seems.The latest massive endorsement of Apple’s smaller iPad comes from lead New York Times tech writer Nick Bilton.

He says, “It is, by far, the best iPad the company has ever made. Even more, it’s the best tablet and reading device anyone has ever made.”

He also calls it his “Desert Island Device.” As in, if you were marooned on an island which had Internet and power, what single gadget would you bring with you? (Personally, I’m going 11-inch MacBook Air, but that’s just me, I guess.)

Why does Bilton love the Mini? “Because it is truly portable, while maintaining its speed, and remaining in the iOS app ecosystem.”

As for that screen lots of people like to howl about? He says it’s no biggie: “I used it for two weeks and my concerns about the screen’s quality are completely irrelevant.”
