As i Predicted last week the iPad Mini was announced overnight by Apple, they had put on their website that there was going to be more to show and it was.

The new iPad which is 7" smaller version of the iPad 2 and 3, it has the same resolution as the iPad 2 (1024x768) and weighs in at just 308g and 7.2mm thick.

There is also a rumor that Apple have smart covers all ready and waiting to go on sale at the same time, it will feature the new iOS6 and the A5 Processor, Lightening Dock, but no retina display. 

Prices are starting at $329 for a 6GB model and go up to $429 for the 32GB model and $529 for the 64GB model all WIFI and the a little bit extra for the Mobile version, the good news is that it will be available for use on the new 4G LTE network in Australia and the rest of the world that has 4G LTE enabled.

This is Apple's addition into the 7" tablet market to compete with the new Kindle Fire HD and the Nexus 7, we will just have to see how the sales go, most of the die hard Apple fans will want to get in on the action and will already be lining up the purchase of the mini so look out for an abundance of the larger iPads for sale on eBay and the likes.

There is no firm date of the actual release of the iPad mini but it wont be to long away given Apples track record, so maybe this time next month, but definitely before Xmas to boost those sales.
