Today at an event in the California Theatre in San Jose, Apple announced the iPad mini. The tagline for the device – “Every inch an iPad”. The iPad mini delivers the complete iPad experience but is smaller and thinner. The screen measures just 7.9 inches diagonally and the number of pixels remain the same. The device is 23% thinner than iPad and 53% lighter than iPad.
The device starts at a price of $329 for the WiFi version at 16GB. All Apps from the App Store will work perfectly on the device without any changing needed from the developer’s end. The device sports the powerful A5 chip and delivers 10 hours of battery life. iPad mini also includes the powerful 5 MP iSight camera that is capable of shooting 1080p HD videos and communicating via FaceTime.
The device is amazing in every aspect. With Siri, ultrafast expanded LTE, iCloud, iOS 6 and Apple’s bold new lightning connector, the iPad mini would be a hit. The device is surrounded by a complete aluminum unibody enclosure.
