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.

Android devs have 3900+ platforms to support when creating their apps. (
The number of app stores you can choose from can never compensate for the lack of uniformity of the platform, and unless Google fixes this core vision problem, Apple will continue to dominate where quality apps are concerned.
Also, for the user who commented about Apple deleting your library...I think the term you're looking for is, "data backup", maybe?
