iPad Mini

The iPad Mini has been born–without any amniotic fluid, thankfully. Starting at $329 for the 16GB Wi-fi model, Apple’s newest tablet looks to straddle the fine size line between the iPod Touch and iPad with a 7.9-inch screen. At just 7.2-millimeters thick, the Mini is 23% than thinner than the (new) iPad. It weighs just 0.68 lbs, despite the aluminum bezel. The “wow factor” isn’t really there with the Mini’s 1024 x 768 screen resolution, but since it’s the same resolution as in the iPad 2, that should mean an easy transition for developers and their apps. It can be yours – sans icky goo – November 2. Preorders start this Friday 10/26.
