According to every rumor, hint and speculation spread lately, Apple should definitely have introduced the iPad mini at yesterday’s event – and it did! The thinner and lighter version of the iPad is designed the way it fits in one hand comfortably, and features stunning 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display. Other features include FaceTime HD and iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless performance, and 10 hours of battery life.
However, the fourth-generation iPad announcement also made at yesterday’s event in California Theatre was a bit unexpected. iPad 4 features a 9.7-inch Retina display, new Apple-designed A6X chip, ultrafast wireless, and the new Lightning connector.
Both iterations of the iPad will be available for pre-order at the Apple Online Store on October 26 and will hit the retail stores a bit later, on November 2, starting at 8:00 a.m. As for the price tags, iPad 4 starts at $499, while iPad mini with Wi-Fi starts at $329.
