Apple iPad mini Review


Apple has never been known to abide by industry trends; instead, they have always been known to be trend setters more than followers. The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch are three very good examples of products that have sparked innovation in their...

The aluminium back has a powder coating that’s unfortunately very prone to scratches. In fact, just days after taking it out of the box, it already looks a month old. Fingerprints are a challenge to remove off the matte surface by simply using dry...

Review Apple iPad Mini Tablet


The new number one? Apple has now introduced a smaller tablet featuring a 7.9-inch IPS screen called iPad Mini besides its iPad 4. The older Apple A5 dual-core SoC and a lower screen resolution reduce costs. But will this also have an impact on...

Workmanship, feel, choice of materials and stability, Light and compact, State-of-the-art wireless technologies, Extensive range of accessories, Excellent touchscreen & pleasant keyboard, The IPS screen's good rates, Outdoor use made possible by high...

Case susceptible for fingerprints, Limited connectivity, Subsequent memory expansion not possible, EUR 140 extra for 3G or LTE, Screen only supports 1024 x 768 pixels, Current movies only with black bars due to the 4:3 format, Only 12 month warranty...

iPad mini Review


In this iPad mini review, we will go over the pro and cons of the iPad mini to see if that would work for you.

Although Apple’s co-founder Steve Jobs once said “10-inch screen size is the minimum size required to create great tablet apps”, Apple has recently seen the light and identified the sub-10” tablet market as viable, compelling and worth fighting for. To...

iPad mini Review


For fans of Apple, iPads, and shiny, beepy things, the arrival of the iPad mini is cause for celebration--and that's before we've actually gotten our hands on the thing. Steve Jobs famously said that Apple wouldn't get into the small-tablet market, and...

Super small and light. Already runs all of your apps. Good battery life. Stereo speakers

Relatively low-res, compared to Retina iPads. Slower than iPad with Retina Display. Older internals may become obsolete quicker

iPad mini 4G Review (Verizon)


One of the takeaways from our iPad mini review was quite how travel-friendly the smaller tablet proved to be in comparison to the full-sized version. The 9.7-inch iPad has grown progressively slimmer across its generations, but the 7.9-inch form factor...

More expensive, then, but with LTE the iPad mini feels like it’s how the tablet was meant to be used. Flexible and long lasting, there’s none of the compromise that usually comes with 4G (barring cost) and all of the features that we appreciated from...

Apple iPad mini LTE (AT&T)


The 4G iPad for AT&T offers fast LTE speeds and a long battery life, making it a compelling tablet and hotspot in one device.

Very thin and light aluminum design; Extensive app selection; Great battery life over 4G LTE; Fast 4G performance ; High-quality cameras

Screen not HD; 50 MB iTunes limit over 4G; Limited parental controls

Click to EnlargeThe iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular was a pleasure to use. Despite the mini size, this tablet delivers the full iPad experience. Whether using the mini to take notes in meetings or play games on the subway, we felt like we were using a...

iPad mini Review


Over the last two months, Apple has updated almost all of its core product lines, with the addition of a 13” model to the Retina MacBook Pro line and new silicon for the iPad and Mac mini to go with ground up redesigns for the iPhone, iMac, iPod touch,...

Apple iPad mini review: One for the road


Wait, did hell just freeze over? Maybe a couple of degrees cooler? Rumors of a mini version of the iPad had been laughed at, dodged and denied - not necessarily in that order and often all at once. But here it is - the iPad mini is finally a reality....

Compact body: 200 x 134.7 x 7.2 mm ; 7.9" LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen, 768 x 1024 pixels; scratch-resistant, oleophobic coating ; Dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity, carrier-dependent hotspot support ; Optional 2G/3G GSM, CDMA, LTE...

More expensive than 7" Android tablets, only $70 cheaper than iPad 2 ; No Retina display, 162ppi only ; Same chipset as iPad 2, now two generations old ; iTunes still required for most of the content uploads ; Reflective screen struggles outdoors ; No...

OK, then. Before we have our say on the iPad mini, we'll let the numbers talk. Three million tablets sold over the opening weekend easily beats the record set in March by the then new iPad. It's a combined figure of course for the two new slates - big...

Apple iPad Mini


Let's face it: Right now, the iPad is synonymous with “tablet.” There are dozens of other Android and Windows 8 tablets on the market, but by and large, when people think about a tablet or desire a tablet, what they really want is an iPad. And if they...

Great screen size ; Comfortable and light ; 300,000 apps ; Good rear camera

No Retina screen ; Lightning connector adapter is expensive ; No microSD ; More expensive than Android competitors

If you’re spoiled like us and are already used to high-resolution screens on your new gadgets, the iPad mini may be a let down, initially. But if you disarm your screen snobbery and relax, you’ll find an incredibly comfortable, well-sized, well-built...

Apple iPad mini (Wi-Fi)


How much are apps worth to you? How about $120? If you want those iPad-exclusive apps and price is no object, then no other small-screen tablet will do. Beautifully made, slim, and light, the iPad mini ($329/16GB, $429/32GB, $529/64GB direct) packs...

Beautifully designed.Very good cameras. Largest library of tablet apps

Expensive. Wide. Slippery

The iPad mini lets you run the best library of apps in the biz on a tablet you'll actually want to carry, but it's not the best small-screen tablet you can buy.
