    The wait is finally over as Apple introduced its new iPad mini tablet today! A completely new design, the new iPad is 23% thinner and 53% lighter than the third-generation iPad, which was launched earlier this year. It boasts a 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, FaceTime HD, and iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless and 10 hours of battery life, and you can hold it in one hand.

    The iPad mini is made of aluminum and glass, and is just 7.2 mm thick, weighing in at 0.68 pounds. The 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display has 35% more screen real estate than other 7-inch tablets, and up to 67% more usable viewing area when browsing the Internet. The tablet has a dual-core A5 chip inside.

    The iPad mini has dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi support for speeds up to 150 Mbps, which is twice the speed of other iPads. The Wi-Fi + Cellular models are world-ready and have built-in support for other ultrafast wireless standards such as LTE and DC-HSDPA. It can also act as a Personal Hotspot.

    Here are all the pricing details and pre-order details directly from Apple:

    Crap display, 1/2 the resolution of the Ipad 3, non retina. Droid tablets are better for less money. its basically a "cheap" Ipad 3 with a crap display form 5 years ago

    Given that the mini has the same resolution has the ipad 2, 1024 by 768, but the screen is 7.9 inchs on diagonal rather than 9.7, it does have a higher ddi, meaning that the characters will appear to have less jaggies than the iPad 2. But it won't be as nice as it's big brothers and certainly no where near the iPhone 4, 4S, 5, and the new iPod Touch.

    My friend tried the iPad mini. He said that the device is very light, it's easy to drop.
