Apple’s 7.85-inch iPad Mini 8GB model to be priced $200
From the begging of this year, every one is hearing about the launch of two to three Apple iPads this year.Apple iPad 3, iPad 4 and iPad Mini were those expected devices from the starting of this year.Anyway, Apple has already launched the iPad 3 in March and now, the company is eyeing on the launch of Apple iPad fourth generation and Apple iPad Mini. Recently, Gadgetgyaan has reported that Apple can launch the iPad Mini in August and iPad 4 in the fourt quarter of this year.Today, we got some interesting report from sources, which claims that Apple will launch the iPad Mini in 8GB model only and it’s price will lie between $200-$250.
The Cupertino based tech giant is bringing the Apple iPad Mini to compete against the Amazon Kindle Tablets.Earlier this year, a report came in front of us which showed that Amazon’s tablet have gotten the 14% of tablet marketshare in 2011, well, naturally, it was a big blow for a company like Apple and also, the company knew that these a days there are many consumer out there who are willing to buy a small screen tablet.So, Apple is including itself in the race.Anyway, according to the previous rumors the iPad Mini is going to feature a 7.85-inch display but today, we have heard that it’s going to be a Retina display which will be 2,048 x 1,536 pixels in resolution, it’s a large and good amount of technology as the new Apple iPad withe 9.7-inch screen had the same pixels display.Anyway, if it really has then the screen will be having nearly 320 ppi which means that this screen is going to be very bright.Apple iPad Mini will pack a dual-core processor and will be running on either iOS 5.2 or iOS 6 operating system.Just like the new Apple iPad, the 7.85-inch iPad may support 4G LTE connectivity feature and it’ll definitely support Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, USB port and a 3.5mm AV jack as it’s connectivity features.According to the recent reports, Apple will release this tablet only in 8GB model and we do not agree with it because till this date, every one has seen the Cupertino based company launching iPhones, iPads and iPods in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models.In 2012, Apple has not even launched the 8GB iPad 3 model the company has released the 16, 32 and 64GB models only and the reports claiming about 8GB iPad Mini model does not make any sense.
It do not make any sense because it’s a very short amount of storage for a tablet and another thing is that even if it’s launched with 8GB storage only then the users are not going to add many files and apps including games to their tablet because of this small amount of storage.With this high tech display, the users can easily watch 1080p HD movies and no one’s going to miss the chance, but the small amount of storage will again block the road to success.So, it’s an uncontroversial issue and we do not think that Apple will make such a terrible mistake.On the back of this device there will be an 8 Megapixel camera and it’ll be capable of shooting 1080p HD videos and on front there will be a 2 Megapixel camera for making FaceTime calls.Anyway, let’s hope that Apple will release the small tablet in August at $200 and the pricing many be correct as Amazon’s Kindle Fire is priced at $199.99 and thus, the price is quite acceptable.
