Apple looks to tackle all of the latest low-cost tablets entering the market
no secret that Apple is set to lower the price of entry for the iPad
with the introduction of the
new iPad mini
. Well, the company today confirmed that it has "a little more to show you" next Tuesday.
The iPad mini is expected to feature a 7.85" display with a rather lackluster screen resolution of 1024x768. This screen resolution is the same as the original iPad and the iPad 2, but well below the 2048x1536 of the "New iPad". By sticking with 1024x768, Apple is ensuring that the iPad mini will be compatible with the full library of iPad apps without creating additional fragmentation.
, there are 24 different configurations for the iPad mini (two colors, Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + LTE, two carriers, and three different storage capacities).
Not much else is known about the iPad mini, but we can expect front- and rear-facing cameras, a
Lightning dock connector
, and a much lighter device overall compared to the hefty 1.44 pound New iPad. The battery capacity for the iPad mini is reportedly 16.7 watt-hours. This compares to 5.45, 24, and 42.5 watt-hours for the iPhone 5, iPad 2, and New iPad respectively.
There is little doubt that Apple is likely to have another hit on its hands with the iPad mini, as its customers are a very loyal bunch. This is despite that fact that companies like
Barnes and Noble
offer tablets with higher resolutions screens.

The Great Tablet Wars
10/16/2012 3:22:05 PM
Another Tablet maker is emerging with performance-value Android tablets with some great features - Ainol Electronics -- with one model introduced last month, the Novo 7 Flame - priced at $189 at a site called TabletSprint - that offers a 1280x800 high resolution screen, 2nd Gen Dual Core CPU, an HDMI connection to your TV with Full 1080p (HD) Viewing - great for Movie Downloads through Blockbuster as well as your own videos shot using the tablet video recorder, a 5 megapixel Rear Camera with AF & Flash and a 2 MP webcam, Wifi, Bluetooth, a MicroSD Memory Card slot and a Micro-USB port.. plus an option for 3G - it's by far the most complete budget tablet available under $300 and worth looking at and comparing, especially for the price... Ainol Electronics won runner-up in CES / CNET 2012 "Best Tablet of the Year" Award -- and this new tablet certainly gives the new Nook, Nexus 7, Kindle HD & the this new Mini some competition. Next month Ainol Electronics launches a larger version with a Hi-res 10 Inch screen and a price around $225
"So, I think the same thing of the music industry. They can't say that they're losing money, you know what I'm saying. They just probably don't have the same surplus that they had." -- Wu-Tang Clan founder RZA
