Apple has launched the smaller version of the Apple iPad, which is called the iPad Mini and this would be one of the best competitions to the winner till now, the Samsung Galaxy Tab, 7-inch variant. It is a sleek device that comes with the Retina Display, and there are quite a few amazing features and specs of the device that would keep the typical-Apple feel intact in the iPad Mini.
Here are the specifications of the Apple iPad Mini
- 7.9-inch Multi-Touch™ Retina display
- Apple iOS 6 Operating System
- 7.2 mm thickness
- Front-facing FaceTime HD camera
- 5-Megapixel iSight Camera – 1080p HD video recording
- Dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi
- LTE¹ and DC-HSDPA in the Wi-Fi + Cellular mode iPad Mini
- Lightning connector
What would be special about the iPad Mini is the 7.9-inch screen which offers the same number of pixels which the larger iPad variants already have, and this means a better quality display and Apple is already one of the best brands in the producing excellent displays.
“iPad mini is every inch an iPad. With its gorgeous 7.9-inch display, iPad mini features the same number of pixels as the original iPad and iPad 2, so you can run more than 275,000 apps designed specifically for iPad,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “iPad mini is as thin as a pencil and as light as a pad of paper, yet packs a fast A5 chip, FaceTime HD and 5 megapixel iSight cameras and ultrafast wireless?all while delivering up to 10 hours of battery life.”
