The Apple 16GB iPad Mini with Wi-Fi features 7.9 inches LED multi-touch IPS display with the same resolution as the iPad 2. However, the smaller screen with the 1024 x 768 results in 163 pixels per inch for outstanding clarity and sharpness with both text and images. The iPad mini has an A5 chip for a great deal of processing power. It has longer battery timing due to smaller display however it may vary depending on the usage of the gadget.
iPad mini was designed to be a concentration, rather than a reduction, of iPad. It’s small. But when you use it, it doesn’t feel small. In addition to the Retina display, we packed in a tremendous amount of power and capability. And yet iPad mini remains the perfect mini size. That’s because we re-engineered nearly every component and shaved fractions of millimeters everywhere to keep iPad mini thin and light. It feels like an iPad in every way only it’s mini.
The 5 megapixel rear-facing iSight camera incorporates illuminated sensor for increased lowlight sensitivity as well as great performance in bright situations. Face detection is also supported and recognizes up to 10 different faces for improved exposure and focus settings when photographing people. The camera utilizes a 5-element f/2.4 lens for sharpness and integrates a hybrid infrared filter for greater color fidelity. In addition to improved still imaging capabilities, the iSight camera also supports full HD 1080p video recording with automatic image stabilization.
Smaller Form Factor: The iPad mini features an aluminum unibody enclosure with mono-crystalline diamond-cut edges and a sleek metallic finish. The iPad mini is 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than the iPad. It can also be held comfortably in one hand
7.9 In. Capacitive Multi-Touch Display: The iPad mini features a smaller 7.9 inches LED-backlit IPS display. However, the screen has the same 1024 x 768 native resolution of the iPad 2. Since the display is significantly smaller than the iPad 2 screen, everything looks crisp and sharp. And when compared to a 7" tablet, the iPad mini has 35 percent more screen area. The iPad mini display also takes full advantage of every pixel so apps, magazines and documents fill the screen, from top to bottom and from edge to edge, in both portrait and landscape mode. The iPad mini is designed to give you the maximum amount of screen in the minimum amount of space. To achieve that, Apple reduced the width of the bezels on two sides of the iPad mini display. So although the screen is smaller, it's even more prominent
Lightning Connector: The iPad mini requires an ultraslim connector to match its ultraportable design. The Lightning connector features an all-digital, eight-signal design significantly more durable than the 30-pin connector on the older iPad models. The Lightning connector is reversible so you can plug in a Lightning cable without having to worry which side needs to be up
Front 1.2MP FaceTime HD Camera: With FaceTime built into iPad mini, you can make a video call over Wi-Fi or mobile broadband. The front-facing FaceTime HD camera gives everyone a great view of you while the iSight camera on the back lets you show others what you're seeing. You can also use the front-facing camera for taking self-portraits or recording video in 720p high definition
Rear 5MP iSight Camera: The iSight camera located on the back of the iPad mini is 5 megapixels and uses advanced optics, such as a f/2.4 aperture and a five-element lens for capturing light efficiently, resulting in a sharper and brighter overall image. And the hybrid infrared filter keeps out harmful IR light for more accurate, uniform colors. In addition to taking 5MP still images, the rear iSight camera on the iPad mini can also record HD video in full 1080p. And with automatic video stabilization, your recording is free from bumps and shakes
Eco-Friendly: The iPad mini is made of highly recyclable materials like aluminum and is free of brominated flame retardants (BFRs), polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other harmful toxins
Dual-Core A5 Processor: The iPad mini features the powerful and energy-efficient A5 processor, which makes everything you do feel smooth and natural. From the little things like switching from app to app and swiping from page to page, to more CPU-intensive tasks like editing photos, watching movies, and playing games
Wi-Fi: The iPad mini features advanced Wi-Fi that's up to twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad. With dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi and support for channel bonding, download speeds can reach up to 150 Mbps (may vary depending on Internet service)
10-Hour Battery Life: The iPad mini has up to a 10-hour battery life on a single charge (battery life may vary depending on usage) so you can read, watch, play, write and create without having to worry about finding the nearest power outlet
Siri: Siri lets you use your voice to send messages, schedule meetings, check the latest scores, and more. Ask Siri to do things just by talking. Siri understands what you say, knows what you mean and even talks back
iCloud: iCloud stores your music, photos, apps, mail, contacts, calendars and documents as well as wirelessly push them to all your devices. So if you buy a song, take a photo or edit a calendar event on your iPad mini, iCloud makes sure it appears on your Mac, iPhone and iPod touch too
AirPlay: AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream what's on your iPad mini to your HDTV and speakers via Apple TV. Or mirror exactly what's on your display to the big screen. Vacation photos, blockbusters or iOS games, you can enhance your viewing experience while at home
App Store: The App Store is home to over 275,000 apps made for iPad, which means they're made for iPad mini, too. And many of them are free. Just sign in with your Apple ID - the same one you use to buy music from iTunes - to download any app instantly. And keeping your apps up to date is a cinch, because iPad mini lets you know when updates are available
