iPad Mini launches with 7.9in display
Well, there's that smaller display to start with very skinny bezels. It's 7.9in with a resolution of 1024x768. Build-wise, the iPad Mini has an aluminium curved back and the same finish as the iPhone 5.
Inside there's an A5 chip running the show, a FaceTime HD camera on front and a 5MP iSight camera round the back. LTE 4G is also on board – get a move on EE – with Wi-Fi and there's a Lightning connector of course instead of the old 30 pin stalwart.
We're also looking forward to testing out that 10 hour battery life on the iPad Mini and trying out the new Smart Cover.
We'll be posting price stories throughout the launch but for now, a 16GB with Wi-Fi is US$329 and available to pre-order on October 26th with a release date of November 2nd.
