iPad Mini 7.8″ device is what Apple is looking for to compete with Android and Amazon tablets like Kindle HD and Nexus 7.
Apple is announcing new line of iPad and Mac devices at San Francisco, Live Now!
Update: iPad 4, iPad Mini Announced
The rumors had started in late November 2011 and since then there wasn’t a concrete proof. Starting very recently, there had been some positive leaks that indicate that iPad Mini is indeed a reality coming very soon.
Apple definitely felt the heat from smaller 7″ Android Tablets like Kindle Fire (HD), Nexus 7 and Galaxy Tab2, which appeale consumers coz of their size. We own Nexus 7 and iPad, and I proudly pick the lighter and smaller tablet to read my books on the go. When I’m browsing, I still prefer a larger screen, however, 7″ sounds perfect for single handed reading. Ever tried holding iPad in one hand for reading? You’ve dealt with the pain.
iPad Mini Specs
iPad mini will be a budget device, and hence hardware configuration wise, it would match the iPad 2, if not iPad 3. Most probably it would feature a 32nm A5 processor, and probably 512MB of RAM, Lightning port, and both-sided camera.
100 Million iPads have been sold so far, here comes iPad Mini.
