Apple introduces low-priced iPad Mini

The long wait is over as Apple finally introduced the iPad Mini, the long-anticipated smaller tablet also with a smaller price. Mere half-year after the third-generation iPad was introduced, this new pencil-thin (7.2mm) iPad Mini is now coming out in the market at $329.

The said mini version of iPad has a 7.9-inch screen, measured diagonally (vs. 9.7-inches for the larger iPad, a new one of which Apple also introduced). That’s wider than the 7-inch screens on the Kindle or Nexus 7. The new screen has resolution of 1024 by 768, thus, all the software created for previous iPads will work. But it doesn’t sport the sterling retina display that’s on the latest generations of its larger version. Moreover, there’s nothing one can do with the new iPad that he won’t be able to do on the larger iPad, and vice versa.

The iPad mini is made of aluminum, as opposed to the plastic that Google’s Nexus 7 is made of. It has a dual-core A5 chip, and a FaceTime HD and 5MP iSight cameras. On certain models, it has LTE wireless as fast as the bigger iPads. Wi-Fi is more robust, and it has the inevitable Lightning connector.

Apple says that iPad Mini has 10-hour battery life, and it retains what is arguably the biggest advantage that Apple claims — the 275,000 apps in the App Store.
