Apple iPad Mini review: a smaller iPad

Apple's little guy



After focusing on the high-end segment, Apple now wants a piece of the mid-range tablet market. Hardware.Info tested the 64GB iPad Mini without 3G.

Tablet fans had been yearning for it for a while, and a few weeks ago the iPad Mini was finally announced. With a price of around £269 for the 16 GB WiFi only version Apple for the first time entered the mid-range segment with a new product. Until now Apple made previous generation products available for this market, such as the iPad 2 that’s still in production. It will compete this holiday season with Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD and the ASUS Nexus 7, among others.

The ASUS Nexus 7 is the main direct competitor of the Apple iPad Mini. The Nexus 7 is about £70 more affordable, so it will be interesting to find out whether the Mini can justify its price. More about that later.
