The cheapest, the slimmest and the cutest iPad yet. Starting at a tag of $329, Apple Inc. somewhat makes things affordable here. The iPad mini is available in two variants, 'Wi-Fi' and 'Wi-Fi + Cellular'.
'Wi-Fi' model supports only Wi-Fi and bluetooth for its data transferring. While the 'Wi-Fi + Cellular' model allows things connected via GPRS, EDGE, 3G, HSDPA and 4G LTE, other than Wi-Fi and bluetooth.The 'Wi-Fi + Cellular' model needs a nano sim to get worked out.
A 5 MP iSight camera snaps good quality pics and a 1.2 MP FaceTime HD camera possibles good enough video chats. However, it's a big drawback, that iPad mini doesn't come with LED flash. An LED flash won't at all cost much. Apple should have had installed it.
Thanks to 16.3 watt hour lithium-polymer battery. Now things will stay tuned more. Video playing, audio playing and data surfing can be continuously done upto 10 hours.
With a good A5 chip, motions will have restless run without any distraction. It comes in 16/32/64 GB variants and priced between $329(approximately Rs. 18000) and $429(approximately Rs. 35,500).
Nevertheless, iPad mini is priced too much comparing Google's Nexus 7, Samsung's Galaxy Tab 2 and Tab 620.
The free online pre-order starts on October 26. The iPad mini will be available in retail stores since November 2.
