I have to admit I have been a fan of the iPad mini form factor ever since it was introduced and have owned several versions. Over the last few days, I have spent some time with the latest generation of the iPad mini and absolutely loved it. The iPad mini is not for all but it is a great device and the form factor calls for some interesting use case. Here are my thoughts in this article.
Apple is expected to launch the iPad 4 (4th Gen) in India soon along with the iPad mini.The base 16GB WiFi only version is expected to be launched at Rs.31900.The iPad 4 was announced just under 6 months after the iPad 3’s launch which has caused a lot of disappointment amongst iPad 3 owners including myself . The main changes on the 4th gen iPad include the faster A6X processor , lightning connector and faster WiFi and LTE support. If you own a iPad 3 , you can hang on to it for a while but if you are using an iPad 2 and looking to upgrade , you can surely consider the iPad 4. Apple is just calling it the iPad with Retina Display !

Apple had launched the previous iPad (iPad 3rd) just 7 months ago in March , and in a surprising move Apple has updated the iPad already. In terms of hardware the new iPad looks almost identical to the iPad 3 but packs the all new Apple A6X chip which is two times faster than the previous A5X chip. The 30-pin connector has been replaced with the new Lightning connector. Apple is also stating improved WiFi performance and additional support for more LTE networks in the latest iPad.
