In this edition of MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill and analysts Joe Magyer and Tony Arsta look at Apple's most surprising number recently: the price of its iPad Mini.

At $329, the device is higher-priced than those of its nearest competitors, and actually a bit closer to their existing larger iPad device in price. Joe's initial impression is that the price was a little rich, but after a letting it sink in he's come around to the idea and thinks Apple will be able to pull off the premium price tag.

With that said, though, the guys do think there's a bit of product creep in Apple's portfolio, which stands in stark contrast to the Steve Jobs era of a slim and focused suite of products.
