Is there anything Mini about the iPad Mini?   Leave a comment

As a proud owner of a first generation and a third generation iPad, I was curious as to what the iPad mini reviews would say before deciding whether I should go out and get one.

Here is a roundup of all the top info I could gather on the iPad mini from around the web:

  • with a 7.9 inches display, the iPad mini is larger than the Nexus or the Kindle Fire but is still small enough to be held in one hand
  • it has a A5 chip processor
  • it is 7.2 mm thick
  • it weighs only 0.68 pounds
  • it has access to 275,000 apps from the Appstore
  • it has a front-facing and a rear-facing camera
  • unfortunately, it does not have a Retina diplay–this may be one of its major drawbacks, according to some reviewers
  • other reviewers think that its 1024 x 768 display, which is like that of the iPad 2, is more than adequate for watching videos
  • it is pricy for a small tablet, coming in at $329 for the 16 GB wifi-only version
  • one reviewer recommends it for combined use with a MacBook Pro
  • for CNET’s first look video review, see below:

So, will I buy an iPad mini?  I will probably wait until they come out with an iPad mini that has a retina display, because after using my third-generation iPad for months, I have become accustomed to the beautiful, clear display and am not sure how I would feel if I had to re-adjust to a lower resolution screen.  How about you?  Do you have one, or do you plan on getting one?  Please comment below.
