Lo and behold! Let’s all welcome the new Apple iPad Mini. It’s a thinner, lighter and smaller iPad. It may not be a fastest iPad and its price may not be that cheap compared with other 7-inch tablets, but we’ve got to admit, it’s one heck of a device that millions of us will surely buy.
So, what does the iPad Mini has to offer aside from its 7-inch screen display size? Here are the key specs of the new iPad Mini:
- 7.9-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi-Touch
display with IPS technology (1024-by-768 resolution at 163 pixels per inch (ppi))
- Apple A5 processor
- 5MP iSight Camera
- 1.2MP FaceTime camera
- Lightning connector
- Wi-Fi and LTE
- Bluetooth 4.0
The iPad Mini will be available in two designs namely, Black & Slate and White and Silver. Pre-orders on the new iPad Mini will start online on Friday, October 26 and availability will be on November 2 for the iPad Mini Wi-Fi only in the following countries US, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
And now for the much talked about pricing of the new iPad Mini.

No words yet on when the iPad Mini will become available in our beloved countries. But I’m positive that it will be out soon just in time for the Holiday Season as Apple will like to beef up sales before the year ends. So, let’s hope for an earlier release then.
