Apple has been at the top of gadget charts because of their lifestyle-changing devices. The technology giant has indeed raised the bar when it comes to gadgets and everyone else is just eager to snag their spot but Apple developers and executives certainly wonât give it up without putting up a good fight.
After releasing the first iPad almost three years ago, four new versions of the gadget were introduced, along with a miniature version called the iPad Mini. A lot of software executives and bloggers raised their eyebrows upon learning of iPadâs newest baby. Apart from its size, what else does this mini version of the iPad offer? It is a given that iPadâs smaller version has the same features as the original one. Those who love to chat using their iPad3 can still enjoy the same streaming video quality, those who enjoy playing online games on their tablet can expect nothing less and those who often place calls through VoIP apps can be assured of nothing less, too.
Tablets made life easier for travelers and gamers alike. Now they can enjoy their favorite online games or check their email while waiting for their flight or bus ride, without having to bring their bulky and heavy laptop around. Since the iPad mini is much smaller than its predecessors, 7.87 inches in height and 5.3 inches in width, it can fit almost any carry-on luggage or backpack. It is the perfect fit for those who are always on the go but before throwing your Sony VAIO or iPad3 away, have a look at the points below and see if the mini version is for you.
Â· You want something cheaper. When it comes to purchasing gadgets, it is important you go for something that is economical yet still meets all your tech requirements. The iPad Mini definitely meets these requirements. Thousands of consumers all over the globe go for the iPad Mini because of its price.
Â· You want something smaller. Although the original full sized Apple iPad lists its size as an apparent advantage compared to other tablets available on the market, there are still people who would prefer a smaller one all because of its weight and portability. This is probably why Apple came out with the Apple iPad Mini. It is evident that the iPad Miniâs 9.7 inch display is more mobile and easier to grasp than its predecessor. Anyone, even women who typically have smaller hands, can operate the Mini with just one hand whenever the other hand is busy doing other things, like using the RingCentral PBX system or holding a cordless phone. If in any case you miss the large display of the full sized iPad, especially when you are watching your favorite TV series, just connect your iPad Mini to your HDTV and you will be good to go. Grab that popcorn bucket and sit yourself down.
On the other hand, here are some of the reasons why you should go for an iPad4 in lieu of Appleâs mini:
Â· You want something bigger, faster, stronger. The iPad Mini may be $170 cheaper than the latest versions of the full sized Apple iPads like the iPad4 but that $170 can really go a long way. For a very minimal amount, you can get a Retina Display that is even sharper and crisper than a 1080 HDTV and processing power that is twice than what the iPad Mini has. It is then evident that the iPad4 is really a powerhouse compared to the iPad Mini but note that they target different markets and do belong in different leagues.
