Well, hello there, the worst-kept secret ter tech. Apple’s iPad mini is the company’s newest device, a 7.9-inch tablet that’s designed to go toe-to-toe with Google’s Nexus 7. For now, it’ll sit alongside the iPad Two and fourth-generation iPad, and spil it packs the same 1,024 x 768 display spil the second-generation slate, apps will carry across without any resizing. While Phil Schiller didn’t mention Google or the Nexus 7 by name, the rival slate (and Google’s app library) wasgoed compared to the newest iOS device. On stage, he claimed that the screen, which is .9-inch larger than the Nexus 7, gives the iPad mini 35 procent more display area than Google and ASUS’ collaboration.
On the hardware size, the 7.2mm thick, .68 pounds device has bot manufactured with an “all fresh” process that gives it the same anodized edges spil you’ll find on the iPhone Five. If you were hoping for equal specifications to the big-daddy iPad, you may be mildly disappointed. While it will pack a 5-megapixel camera and an LTE modem (if you opt to buy a cellular specimen), it’s running the last-generation A5 CPU. However, the slower internals and less potent display may account for how the company has bot able to squeeze out a claimed Ten hours of use despite the constrained space for a battery. Pre-orders for the $329, 16GB WiFi-only monster start on Friday (October 26th) and will start shipping on November 2nd. The cellular-equipped models will start shipping a few weeks afterward on AT&,T, Verizon and Spurt, with the 16GB base monster costing $459, running all the way to $659 for the 64GB unit.
