iPad Mini official specs and UK prices
Tim Cook was waving one around on stage in San Jose and Sir Johnny Ive called it a “concentrated” iPad – but what are the specs and, more importantly, the prices?
The iPad Mini has a 7.9-inch screen with a resolution of 1024×768. Not Retina Display territory but, apparently, that extra 0.9-inches is very important. I think that was a dig at the Nexus 7.
Build-wise, the iPad Mini is 7.2mm thin with an aluminium curved back and the same finish as the iPhone 5.
Inside there’s a dual-core A5 chip pushing things along, a FaceTime HD camera on front and a 5MP iSight camera round the back.
The little iPad is also rocking LTE 4G is also on board – handy now that EE has unveiled its pricing tariff 😉
You also get Wi-Fi and the Lightning connector instead of the old 30 pin old skool fitting.
UK prices for the iPad Mini have just been confirmed by Apple as being £270 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, £350 for the 32GB Wi-Fi only model and £430 for 64GB.
Wi-Fi and 3G/4G models will ship a few weeks later for £370 for 16GB, £450 for 32GB and an eye-watering £530 for the 64GB version.
The iPad Mini is available to pre-order on October 26th with a release date of November 2nd.
