Every holiday season can mean many things to many people, and even many companies. To some it may mean family dinners, holiday shopping, milk and cookies and a warm fire place. To others, like the companies out there, it may mean it is time to capitalize on the competition and the holiday season by bringing putting out the best products our company can offer currently. Well the Apple and its tablets have gone ahead and utilized that prospect wholeheartedly. The tablet game has been going strong, and its only getting more complex as the holiday season draws closer and closer. Well Apple has one more trick up their sleeve this year.The new iPad Mini with its Retina display is now available
for all consumers and is really shaping up to be one of the best possible tablets to purchase this year with everything it has to offer so far.So what exactly can this new mini tablet offer up to the table? Well how about starting with the one thing that everyone seems to gawking at. The new 2,048 x 1,526 pixel count Retina display. For such a smaller screen than the recently released iPad Air
, that is quite a large pixel count. The newly introduced A7 chip processing unit along with the co-processing M7 chip are also featured in the in iPad Mini Retina. It just so happens that both of these chips are also included in the iPad Air as well. Both of these chips working together means much faster functionality due to the M7 chip taking over all motion functionality processing and leaving the rest for the A7 chip to handle. Weighing in at only 0.73 lbs and boasting a 7.9 inch display, it would seem that this new iPad Mini is basically the new iPad Air only…”Mini”. They do host the same specs after all.
The only real draw back to the new iPad Mini is the $399 price tag. As with most Apple products, this one comes with a decently sized price. Having said that though, it is still $100 cheaper than the new iPad Air and is basically the same thing. This is perfect for anyone not wanting to haul around a larger tablet but still wants the freedom and mobility of a top quality tablet. The $399 is also starting price, so if you choose to get a higher memory storage or are planning to get LTE service as well, be prepared to have the price increase pretty substantially.
It may be a better benefit to rent this before buying just to see if the size itself would be the best fit for you, along with all of the capabilities of the device. This could be a great fit for the office as well, with its storage size being able to be expanded up to 128GBs, holding documents, memos, and even setting up your programs and apps. Any office could benefit from new tech, but now even class rooms are beginning to utilize tablets and the iPad Mini could be perfectly suited for teachers and students alike. That is, if it is within the schools budget of course.
