iPad Mini Release Date

That’s right – the iPad Mini has been released just 6 short months after the third generation iPad. At 7.2mm the iPad Mini is pencil-thin and said to be “as light as a pad of paper”.

More than just a “shruken down iPad”, the iPad Mini also has different features than current mini tablets on the market:

  • 7.9 inch screen
  • 10 Hour Battery Life
  • Dual-core A5 chip
  • FaceTime HD
  • 5MP iSight Camera
  • LTE wireless & Faster WiFi
  • Priced at $329

Besides the unexpected sticker price, Apple has tried to show that it’s not playing “catch up” by giving the iPad Mini subtle advantages over existing mini tablets.

The iPad Mini is made of Aluminum, unlike the plastic used for Google’s Nexus7. The screen is also about an inch larger than the 7in screens found on the Nexus7 and Kindle devices. And of course, Apple made sure to point out that there are 275,000 Apps available for the iPad Mini.

Looking for a downside? It does have the new Lightning connector like the iPhone 5. If you’re wanting to use iPad accessories based on the old dock connector you’ll need to get a convertor, conveniently available at… I see what they did there.

The $329 starting price is for the 16GB, WiFi only model and will begin shipping on November 2nd. There is also a 16GB, WiFi plus cellular model – no shipping date on this version, yet.
