iPad mini revealed

This week the folks at Apple have revealed the iPad mini, a device that's smaller than the 4th Generation iPad and bringing with it a hand-held design. This unit brings on "not just a smaller iPad", but a totally re-vamped design - so says Apple. This unit brings on a 7.2mm body, that being 23% smaller than the iPad 3. This unit is .68 lbs as well - that's thin as a pencil and heavy as a pad of paper.

How Many Tablets Do You Really Need?

How Many Tablets Do You Really Need?

Now that Apple has announced that it will hold a special event on Tuesday, just about everyone believes that the show will be used to unveil the iPad Mini. That device, which has been rumored for months, will complement the current iPad and take on the Nexus 7 from Google and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD.

As with every other Apple announcement, the excitement surrounding Tuesday’s event is palpable. Both Apple lovers and haters are wondering what the company will offer up, and chances are, many of those folks are getting their wallets ready to plunk down cash to preorder whatever it is the iPad Mini becomes.

Why do we care about the iPad mini?

Why do we care about the iPad mini?

Not as big as the new iPad; not as small as the iPhone 5 or iPod touch; it's Apple's own "tweener" and by all rights and intents the iPad mini should be nothing more than a gap filler. Yet anticipation is high for the presumed 7.85-inch iOS tablet, and while spirits always tend to get, well, spirited in advance of an Apple event, sometimes the justification seems more inexplicable than others. Arguably, in the context of the tablet market - and post-PC computing as a whole - Microsoft's Surface is far, far more important than the iPad mini.

iPad mini Apple event invites released: October 23rd it is

Today it's time to get busy packing for the next big Apple event, set for October 23rd and quite likely to reveal no larger an iPad than a mini. With the iPad mini on peoples' lips and in their dreams now for several months (or years, for some), it comes as no surprise that the device will be revealed just in time for the holiday season. Now we've just got to hypothesize on how many other devices - or device refreshes - will be appearing as well.

Design-tweaked iPad mini WiFi-only tip insiders while iPad 3 gets Lightning

Design-tweaked iPad mini WiFi-only tip insiders while iPad 3 gets Lightning

The iPad mini is likely to be WiFi-only, sources claim, and accompanied by a refreshed iPad 3 with Lightning connector and broader LTE support, though last-minute design changes could shake up Apple's launch. Tipped to be a 7.85-inch slate hoping to bring Apple's tablet success to a mid-point between the existing new iPad and the iPod touch, the iPad mini will lack 3G/4G, according to the Guardian's insiders, so as to help keep prices down and maintain the larger model's halo.

iPad mini visualized in bright color renderings

With rumors abound of an iPad mini device appearing in the Apple lab this season it's only appropriate that high-quality renderings of said device would begin to appear in droves. What we're looking at here is a set of renderings done by designer Martin Hajek, a fellow who is also in the process of making some 3D models of the device for real-world use - for case-makers, of course. For now though it's time to peek at some iterations, including brightly colored backside the same as the 5th generation iPod Touch models just introduced with the iPhone 5.

It would appear that if indeed Apple is going to show a new iPad mini inside the next few weeks, it'll be released right alongside a new iPad (3rd gen) as well, complete with A6 processing power under the hood. A developer has discovered in their standard Apple developer's logs that a brand new iPad - designation iPad 3,6 - pointing towards a modified version of the latest iPad on the market today. This release would come alongside an iPad mini at an iTunes-centered event inside October.

The iPad mini will be free: here’s why

The iPad mini will be free: here’s why

In a world where the cost of some technology is hotly debated and is completely dismissed for others, it only makes sense that Apple would release the iPad mini for free. I wrote a column back before the iPhone 4S was release called Why the iPhone 4S will be free - turned out it wasn't the iPhone 4S that ended up being free, but the iPhone 3GS - and that was indeed the first time any iPhone was offered up for free in a sales structure that remains today (with the iPhone 4 in that position at the moment). Apple will bring this structure to the iPad universe too - but it wont wait for its oldest models to fall into the $0 position to make it happen.
