Apple iPad mini 3 is a great iOS tablet released in October 2014, packed with a pretty big 7.9" multi touch display, an extremely fast 64-bit Dual-Core processing unit running at 1300 MHz, a 5 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. But it's time to get into much more detail.

Regarding its aspect, this tablet is majorly created with Aluminium, giving it a quality design. The iPad mini 3 is for sale in 2 color options, gray and gold. It appears that Apple didn't care so much about the weight in this 12.03 ounces device. The Apple iPad mini 3 is extremely slim and stilized, with a thickness of just 0.3". This device only has 7.87" long, but it manages to hold a 7.9" display.

Apple equipped this device with a high-tech 1300 megahertz Dual-Core 64 bit CPU, bundled in an Apple A7 system chip with only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a little low for a device this good. Graphic intensive apps generally consume lots of processor time, so it also uses a PowerVR G6430 graphics processing unit working at 600 megahertz to improve overall performance. A good point of this device is the 64 GB huge internal memory and even though it doesn't have an SD memory slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of apps without worrying about filling it.

This tablet is equipped with a beautiful 7.9" display with a 1536 x 2048 resolution, which makes everything look amazing. Its display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

The iPad mini 3 includes wi-fi connectivity (which can be shared with other devices around, acting as a router or modem), 4G LTE fast connectivity or the fastest 3G internet connection, over HSPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. The Apple iPad mini 3 works with a Nano SIM card for GSM connection and it can connect to both CDMA and GSM networks.

This tablet is equipped with two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front camera. It can also shoot Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 30 fps. The camera also has lots of cool features like digital image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, HDR mode, time lapse video and geo tagging.

This tablet packs a 6350 mAh large non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this device with an amazing battery life. An issue to take into account is that the iPad mini 3's battery is not removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts losing capacity, although having 6350 mAh you will probably buy a new tablet before it becomes an issue.

This tablet also features many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), Fingerprint Scanner, GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (Near Field Communication), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet is a really good offer considering it's a great tablet and it costs just $ 289. If you want it to take plenty of photographs, want a social tablet, will use it for work or are looking for a gaming tablet, this device is definitely a great option for you. If you buy this tablet you also receive Lightning to USB Cable and USB Power Adapter.
