On October 23 in San Jose, California, just half a year after launching the new iPad with retina display, Apple launched their newest version of iPad to refresh their current lineup with the new iPad Mini.
Also called “The Pencil Thin Mini,” this newest iPad has a depth of only 7.2 mm (as compared to the 8.8 mm depth of iPad 2 and 9.4 mm of the iPad with Retina Display), which makes it as thin as an ordinary pencil – literally!
It’s thin and it’s lightweight. Weighing just 308 g (in contrast to the weight of iPad 2 which is 601 g and of iPad with Retina Display which is 652 g), the new iPad Mini is a much lighter load for any small bag, as it is just as light as a pad of paper.
Screen-wise, The Mini iPad was not made to compromise its screen by being smaller. In fact, the 7.9 inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi-touch display width is proportional and is considerably wide enough to enable its user to read as if reading a real book and use it as a computer without much effort. It is even wider compared to Kindle and Nexus 7 whose screen widths are 7 inches.
Thinking about the screen resolution? The 1024 by 768 resolution of the new iPad Mini can run all softwares and applications created for the previous models of iPad.
The new iPad mini lets you play games, surf the net, read books, watch movies, and many more with its Dual-core A5 processor.
You can also communicate with your loved ones with its FaceTime HD camera which has 1.2 MP photos, 720p HD video, FaceTime video calling over, Face detector, and backside illumination.
It also has iSight camera which has 5MP photos, autofocus, face detection, backside illumination, five-element lens, and hybrid IR filter.
Considering its major features and functionalities, the new Mini iPad is basically the same as the rest of its iPad siblings, just smaller and more compact this time.
Capture life’s best moments with the new Mini iPad’s 1080p HD video recording, in which you can tap to focus while recording. It also has video stabilization, face detection, and backside illumination.
According to Apple’s marketing chief Phil Schiller, The Mini iPad lets you do everything in less the size. “What do you do with the Mini that you can’t already do with the iPad? Hold it in one hand. But it’s not just a shrunken-down iPad; it’s an entirely new design where every detail was finely crafted. And it’s incredibly thin and beautiful from every angle,” said Schiller.
