Apple unveiled the iPad mini with a 7.9-inch (1024 x 768 pixels) display at 163 ppi and a dual-core A5 processor last month. I got some hands-on time with the WiFi version of the iPad mini. It went on pre-order on October 26th in over 30 countries and the WiFi version goes on sale in those countries today (November 2nd) and the WiFi + Cellular version would be available by mid-November. The iPad mini with WiFi is priced at $329, $429 and $529 for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions respectively, in the U.S., while the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB WiFi + Cellular versions would cost $459, $559 and $659 respectively.
The back is made of anodized aluminium unlike the previous models. There is a Apple logo and iPad branding below that.
There is a 5 Megapixel HD camera at the back that can record videos at 1080p full HD resolution and has Face detection and Video stabilization.
There is a 3.5 mm audio jack and a power button at the top.
The new lightning port is located at the bottom along with the speakers on both sides.
The iPad mini runs on iOS 6. It has a 1.2MP front-facing camera with 720p HD video for Facetime. It also has personal assistant Siri.
