With iPad Mini, Apple has made a sincere attempt in bringing the Apple tablet experience to a brave new budget world. The iPad Mini's screen measures 7.9 inches diagonally—compared with 9.7 inches for the larger iPad. The Wi-Fi version of the tablet is 308g, lesser than both the Nexus 7, which comes in at 340g, and the Kindle Fire HD 7", which is nearly 395g. The iPad mini has roughly 35 per cent more screen real estate than other 7-inch tablets. It has stereo speaker grilles on the bottom along with a new Lightning port.

The first is the main iSight camera which shoots 5-megapixel images and records 1080p HD video. The FaceTime camera has a lower 1.2-megapixel resolution.
