Meet Apple’s iPad Mini!

As trends go, it seems that smartphones sizes are getting larger while tablets are shrinking. Apple has embraced this by introducing a smaller version of its popular iPad, the iPad Mini, just unveiled today.

If you already have an iPad, do you need an iPad Mini? Well, it seems that it really all comes down to your preferences for feel and accessibility – as Apple’s Senior VP of Worldwide Marketing says, it’s "fantastic for kicking back and reading a magazine.”

How mini is the iPad Mini? The screen is 7.9-inches diagonally and about as thin as a pencil, or 7.2mm. And it weighs in at only .68 lbs which is 53% lighter than the fourth generation iPad. The internals of the iPad Mini are largely the same as the iPad 2.

So how do you get your hands on one? According to Apple’s website you can pre-order yours starting October 26th or buy the Wi-Fi model at an Apple Retail Store starting at 8:00 a.m. on November 2nd. The starting price is $329 and Wi-Fi + Cellular models are scheduled to be available sometime in mid November.

Are any of you planning to purchase an iPad Mini?

I can’t say that I would run out and buy an mini-IPad, but having a smaller tablet does have its advantages, especially while traveling when space in a carry-on bag is at a premium. Also, if you are in a situation where you might using a tablet, where it has to be held for many hours, i.e. a street survey, a smaller, lighter would definitely fit the bill.

I purchased px360 for iPhone5 and just got today. I love this pretty much!

As I’m going to buy iPad mini, I seek your cases for iPad, but it seems no such products.
Why don’t you make your fantastic cases of iPad version?
I’m seriously looking forward to the one for iPad mini!
