Apple never runs out of rumors for new products. iPhone 5 is getting hot and seems like to be coming out this year and this iPad mini is also making a name. If this smaller iPad comes out, I guess we might have to expect that it will knock out competitors again.
According to the latest news coming out, the iPad mini will have the same resolution with the New iPad at 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, of course will be less expensive than the latter ones but it will have less storage. They say it will come around in $200 or $250 price range – half the price of the current 16gb iPad models that Apple is selling today. It’s also a bit steeper than the Apple’s iPod touch line that starts from $199 for the 16GB model and a bit cheaper than the 64GB model for $399.
This device comes with an interesting claim; the iPad mini will only have 8GB of storage – might not be a winner as users prefer bigger storage for media and apps. This is only half of the cheapest iPad model. Currently, Apple has 3 storage configs with their devices, the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB – iPad mini’s 8GB might enter the pack. But, it will have the latest retina display though, just like the New iPad with a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution. This might give it a boost.
