The Obligatory iPad Mini Launch Post

If we didn’t post something about the launch of the new Apple iPad Mini you might wonder what we were up to ..

So here it is..

First off, let’s look at it. Since we obviously don’t have an actual iPad Mini here’s a nice photo of one provided by Apple:

Now we could try to hack together a semi-meaningful article about the new iPad Mini’s merits, but let’s face it, just about every tech blog on the planet is covering this launch, so we’re not going to be able to add much “value”..

Things we did notice, however.

Yes, it is smaller. (See photo above). While Apple made the iPhone 5 a little bit bigger (and lots of people exaggerated the size difference) the iPad Mini is smaller than previous generations.

It’s also got better wifi and will use both 2.4 G and 5G.

Since it’s smaller it also weighs less and takes up less space, which if you travel at all is a good thing (TM).

    Think the price point is going to be a big player on this one.

    You’re going to have the fan boys who have to have one.

    BUT the nexus 7 is coming in at sub 200 quid so unless you’ve a lot of Apps that are iOS dependant I’m struggling as to why you’d want an iPad mini

      If, like me, everything you have is Apple based then it’s a logical move. Of course it depends on what you use (or would use) an Mini iPad for.
