Without a doubt, the small version of iPad has become the latest hot topic being discussed not just among the Apple fans, but all the mobile phone and tablet users around the globe. The iPad Mini has a 7.9-inch display with an awesome 1024 x 768 resolution. It comes with Apple A5 processor, 0.3 megapixel front camera, and 5 megapixel rear-facing camera.


The new Apple device has only 0.28 inch in thickness and it’s the lightest iPad ever made, with only 0.68 pounds about 50% of the weight of “The New iPad”.
