The New iPad Mini Released!!

 

Many people have been talking about it, many have been waiting patiently and finally it has arrived! The iPad Mini was unveiled on October 23. Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller touts the iPad Mini, revealed during an announcement on Tuesday, October 23, 2012.

The 7.9 inch tablet comes out with the same high-definition retina display as on the newest iPad. It will also come in the usual black and white versions. The iPad Mini is a little larger than Googles Nexus and Amazon’s Kindle Fire.

Another great announcement about the iPad Mini is that the 16GB Wi-Fi version is only $329. The higher end one with high speed cellular capability goes for about $659. The iPad Mini won’t be in stores a couple of weeks, but you can pre-order in stores on November 2. This will be competition with Microsoft’s new tablet the Surface, not to mention The Kindle Fire, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7, among others. It looks like it will be a great tablet and be a blow to Microsoft’s venture into the tablet wars.
