The iPad Mini is a smaller, lighter version of the Apple iPad tablet device launched by Apple Inc. on October 23rd, 2012. Like the regular iPad, the iPad Mini runs Apple’s iOS mobile operating system, which is currently available as iOS 6.
The iPad Mini also offers a 7.85-inch screen with 1024x768 resolution (as opposed to the iPad’s 9.7-inch Retina display screen), a dual-core A5 processor and 512MB of RAM, in a form factor that is 7.2 mm thick and weighs .68 lbs (53% lighter than the new iPad released earlier in the year). The iPad Mini also offers 4G LTE support on both Verizon and AT&T networks in addition to Wi-Fi support.
Pricing for the iPad Mini begins at $329, and pre-orders for the tablet start on Friday, October 26th — the same day Windows 8 launches.
