Tablet Review: Apple iPad Mini

Apple managed to hold out for two years before deciding to enter the market for tablets under 8" in size. Faced with a groundswell of competition from Google and Amazon with the Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire HD, Apple's much-rumoured iPad Mini has finally seen the light of day.

The iPad Mini is neither a 7" nor an 8" tablet, straddling the divide and setting itself apart from other small-format tablets with a 7.9" 4:3 display. Set into a screen bezel whose vertical edges have been whittled right down to the minimum, the Apple iPad Mini has been fitted with an IPS screen panel with 1024 x 768 pixels. It runs on a 1 GHz dual-core Apple A5 processor, the Power VR SGX543MP2 graphics chip and 512 MB of RAM. It's available with 16, 32 or 64 GB of memory. There's a 5-Megapixel photo and video (1080p) camera on the back of the tablet, as well as a 2-Megapixel front-facing webcam. Connectivity is catered for with Wi-Fi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0.
