And it is now official, Apple launched its 7-inch tablet called, iPad Mini. Consider this as big brother of Itouch 5th gen, and a fat iPhone 5, this item will certainly flaunt itself to its core market. This is priced at $329, which is very Apple trademark, (they are really placing themselves at the top price range of 7 inch tablets, will not go down to $200-$250 mark, oh and by the way that range owned by Google and Asus tablets) people are still talking about its product potential….
* 7.9 inch display, 7.2mm thick and 0.67lbs.
* got iOS6 installed running using A5 chip.
* 10 hour battery life. (Apple won this category)
* lightning speed 30 pin adapter, which is reversible (stupid users no more)
* Siri, Wi-Fi, just like in iTouch 5th gen
* Video recording at 1080P, with 5MP camera.
While Android fanatics are eagerly comparing this gadget with Nexus 7 capability, I believe that each tablet won a category when you match them head-to-head. It is all about what you need in a tablet, I believe that Android users are the profile type which are after gadget customization, better apps management, and performance. But if you are after product satisfaction, simplicity, intuitive for any age bracket, iPad mini will win the hearts of many.
Whatever they say against this product, I know that this will sell more than the Nexus 7, (not discounting Nexus, I love that product) — that’s what Apple products do, they have this certain charisma, people are amazed by the apps availability compared with the Android market. I may take a closer look on this item very very soon.
