Unboxing: Apple iPad mini
New Zealanders were the first in the world to get the iPad mini this morning. We unbox it and go over some of the key specs.PC World Staff | Friday, November 02 2012 | 9 Comments
The iPad mini has been described as similar to an iPad 2, but smaller.
The iPad mini has Apple's A5 processor in it, and a 7.9-inch screen with a 1024 x 768 pixel resolution.
The iPad mini uses a 5W power brick, just as the iPhone 5 does.
The iPad mini and fourth generation iPad both feature Apple's smaller 'lightning' connector, first introduced on the iPhone 5 in September. And visible here are the stereo speakers, new to iPad.
Those used to high-resolution Retina screens will be able to see the difference in the iPad mini right away.
Next to an iPad 2, the smaller side bezel and overall screen size differences are obvious. The iPad mini can be held in one hand.
The edges of the iPad mini (right) are squared off compared to the iPad 2.

But how would it work as a tool - Keynote, pages, numbers etc...
Sits nicely in between the Maxi Pad and the phone, but if you've already got both of those devices do you need a third?
