The iPad mini is expected have a 7.85-inch display with resolution of 1024×768 pixels and a dual-core A5 processor. In a nutshell, we can expect the innards of the iPad 2, just in a smaller shell and a slightly smaller screen but with the same resolution which should make text a lot more crisper. The price of the tablet is expected to be between $200 and $300, with the sole aim of destroying the Android competition.
It’s worth noting that for once the new tablet will not be a lone ranger like the original iPad. It will enter a booming 7-inch tablet market which currently is dominated by the formidable Google Nexus 7 which runs Android Jelly Bean and the new Amazon Kindle Fire HD which will have the backing of Amazon’s unmatched content ecosystem.
