The iPad mini is here !

As expected, Apple’s iPad mini was just revealed by the Cupertino firm. The company’s newest device, a 7.9-inch tablet is designed to go toe-to-toe with Google’s Nexus 7, and the Amazon Kindle Fire HD.

As rumors said, it’s a sleek, thin and light 7.9-inch 1,024 x 768 display tablet made of anodized aluminum and glass that follows the format reduction pioneered by other giants. And really light and thin it is with only 0.68 pounds and 7.2 millimeters. That’s 53% lighter than the fourth-generation iPad. It compares very favorably to the Nexus 7 (0.75 pounds and 10.4 millimeters). It has also better specs than its main competitor, but much more expensive too.

Some models come with LTE connectivity, and naturally with 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (like Amazon and Google’s models). Like all the latest iOS products, it uses a Lightning port too.

Basically, this is a reduced iPad 2, featuring the same dual-core A5 processor, and probably the same RAM as the old iPad: 512MB. Apple say themself that it’s basically the same guts but in a reduced package, except the cameras and the Lightning port.

The company will sell 3 different flavors: in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, and each model will provide a 10 hour battery life surfing the web on Wi-Fi, watching video or listening to music, according to Apple.

It will start at a price of $329 for the Wi-Fi only version, with 16GB of storage. The 32GB and 64GB are respectively $429 and $529. If you want the LTE connectivity, you will have to pay $130 more.

Pre-order will start this Friday, October 26, and the Wi-Fi version will be delivered on Friday next week, November 2.

By the way, just note that the iPad 2 remains at $399, and that the iPad 3 is gone, replaced by the 4th generation model at $499.
