The web is abuzz with the news of an iPad Mini. Will Apple do this? Are they already doing this? When can we expect it to be launched? The hype is getting bigger everyday as the reveal of a new iPhone gets closer. If the iPad Mini pushes through, what can Apple fans expect?
It’s called Mini for a reason. It will probably be about 80% smaller than the regular iPad. It will still be bigger than the iPhone but it will be more convenient to bring with you wherever you go.
iPhone fans have been clamoring for a bigger screen. The iPad Mini might just be the answer to that. The screen will be significantly smaller than a regular iPad but bigger than the iPhone. According to Bloomberg, Apple has chosen LG Display and AU Optronics as creators of the screen for the new iPad. The new screen is reported to be a 7.85” display but other rumors say that it will even be smaller.
There are already thousands of apps available in the market today and there is a very high probability that they will work flawlessly on the iPad Mini so you won’t have any problems using your favorite apps on the iPad Mini.
There is talk that the iPad Mini will be similar to the iPad 2 on the inside. The technology will be similar. It will use an A5 Chip along with a screen with the same resolution as that of the iPad 2. The technology will be formatted to a smaller version of the iPad translating to cheaper prices. But these are only speculations. This mini version will have less battery life though as it is smaller.
And the final question?
The price! How much will the iPad Mini cost? Well, judging from Apple’s honed expertise and success with the iPad 2, we can pretty much deduce that there will be lesser bugs in the iPad Mini. It will feature improved technology at a more affordable price. The magic number is around $249.
Will the iPad Mini be better than the original iPad? Is the iPad Mini a good idea or is it just another trick for consumers to spend their hard-earned cash for a device that is in reality, already in the market, but is hyped to be the next best thing just because it has a new name and a new size? What are your thoughts about the iPad Mini?
