New Apple iPad Mini
Apple unveils its new iPad, and its mini…
Finally the new Apple iPad Mini has landed, and it’s pretty much what everyone expected it to be – mini. So what does the new iteration of the most popular tablet on the market bring to table, well as Apple put’s it, “iPad Mini is and iPad in every way, shape, and slightly smaller form.”
The iPad Mini will come in two variations, Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi and Cellular, both of which will be available in 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB models. It measures just 0.28 inch (7.2 mm) thick, which is around the size of pencil, and it weighs just 0.68 lbs. (308 g) or 0.69 pound (312 g) for the Wi-Fi and cellular version.
Thin and Light
The first most obvious difference is the appearance, with smaller dimensions and slightly less rounded corners, the device does sit nicely in one hand. And to fit the smaller design, Apple has also tailored an accompanying Smart Cover, and includes the new patented Lightning Connector.

The smaller form factor features a 7.9-inch display, unfortunately not a patch on the previous Retina displays feature on the iPad 3 and the iPhone 5, but still a joy to look at. Under the hood is an A5 chip, and a 16.3-watt rechargeable lithium-polymer battery that provides up to 10 hours of productivity. Rumor has it that the new charger will charge previous iPad models fast than before.

Video camera capability is also rather impressive, the iPad mini features front facing HD camera, which can record up to 720p HD video and take 1.2MP still images, the rear facing iSight. Wireless connectivity includes, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11n Wi-Fi, GSM/EDGE, LTE, and Bluetooth.
Of course everything you can expect form mobile Apple devices, excellent multitouch gestures, access to iTunes and the App Store
The device runs the new iOS6 and comes with onboard apps including Airplay, Siri, iCloud, Safari, Photos, App Store, Maps, Photo Booth, Reminders, Camera, Mail, FaceTime, iTunes, Music, Clock, Calendar, Messages etc.
Aside from the small size, the iPad mini is for the most part, very similar to previous models. So if you love your iPad, and/or are looking for extreme portability, the new iPad Mini might be just the ticket.
