However, there are a lot of rumors talking about iPad mini processor will be upgrade from A5X to A6X, data transmission of 8 pin lightning spec, 12 mega pixel camera, 720p video recording, and 7 inch screen size.

But come to the end iPad Mini will only have a 1024 x 768 resolution, CPU is using A5 duo core (same as iPhone 4S), while many were expecting a 7-inch screen, but Apply has gone for a 7.9-inch IPS display.  Today we will focus on reviewing iPad mini.


Timothy D.Cook, Apple CEO told in the press that IPad sales already been hit 100 Million units.


In PC tablet network web traffic share, iPad has occupied 91% share in the market while others 9% will be between Android and Windows.

When you hold iPad mini will have same feeling of as light as a pad of paper.

Besides that, new change of iPad also using same 8 pin connector as iPhone 5 with lightning spec. which mean new generation of Apple product will use 8 pin spec.



In the press conference, Apple specially took Nexus 7 and iPad mini for comparison.


However, those who were expecting a Retina display will be a little disappointed, because the iPad Mini will only have a 1024 x 768 resolution – the same in the two-generations-old iPad 2. Also, while many were expecting a 7-inch screen, Apple has gone for a 7.9-inch IPS display, making it bigger than both the current 7-inch tablets available (and, therefore, its immediate competition): the Google Galaxy Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD.  


Apple has opinion of iPad mini has 4:3 screen size ratio, which viewing web page will be revealing more details and info. 



  In addition, Apple is also introducing the Smart Cover for the iPad Mini which will be available in five colours. 

 It's so surprising that third generation of New iPad was so fast disappeared in product line up. Even faster than iPad 2. but iPad 2 only left 16GB version. It mean that Apple will focus on 9.7 inch iPad and 7.9 inch iPad mini.

 Finally, Apple announce product launch for iPad mini and 4th iPad released countries. of course, they has not in Malaysia. But the nearest country will be Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore. Maybe you can buy one with a AA flight to there.
