Apple yesterday confirmed all those rumors we've been hearing for months and officially unveiled the iPad mini. The smaller brother to Apple's successful 9.7-inch iPad, the iPad mini doesn't have the same Retina display as the regular-sized iPad. However, it also doesn't have the same price tag; it's significantly cheaper than the newest iPad. While the current generation entry-level iPad (also updated yesterday) is priced at $499, the entry-level iPad mini rings in at $329. But what about UK pricing?
Though $329 translates to just over £200, those in the UK will be paying a bit of a premium compared to their friends across the pond (surprise, surprise). The entry-level iPad mini (16 GB, WiFi-only) will be priced at £269 when it goes on sale next week. The same model with WiFi and cellular connectivity will set you back £369. The 32 GB model is priced at £349/£449 (WiFi-only/WiFi+Cellular), while the 64 GB model will cost you £429/£529 (WiFi-only/WiFi+cellular).
The iPad mini features an A5 chip, just like the iPhone 4S, a front-facing camera for video calls, a 5-megapixel camera on the back, Apple's new Lightning connector, and a 7.9-inch display with the same 1024x768 resolution as the iPad 2. It goes up for pre-order on Friday and will start shipping a week later, on November 2.
