Steve Jobs said Apple would never make a 7" tablet, but he never said they wouldn't make an 8" tablet. The iPad mini is what we'd call an 8" tablet (7.9" to be exact), and it has the usual iPad 4:3 aspect ratio and a sharp and pleasing, though not Retina 1024 x 768 IPS display. It's the perfect tweener for those who find 10" tablets too large and 7" tablets too small. The 0.28" thick iPad mini is gorgeous looking in your choice of white or black aluminum and it's easy to stow in a bag. It's the same resolution as the iPad 2 so apps are instantly compatible and it runs on the same 1GHz dual Core A5 CPU. The mini is available in a variety of storage capacities and in WiFi-only and WiFi + 3G/4G LTE models.
