Apple iPad mini is a mid-level iOS tablet, coming with a big 7.9" multi-touch capacitive screen, a good performance 1000 MHz Dual-Core processing unit, and two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.2 mega-pixels front camera. We will get a better idea about this tablet's wonders when we get into deeper details.

Apple ships this device with a good performance 1000 megahertz Dual-Core CPU, included in the Apple A5 system chip and 512 MB RAM. Graphic calculations often uses a lot of processing power, so it also has a PowerVR SGX543 MP2 graphic processing unit speeding at 200 MHz to take some work out of the processor. A key advantage of the iPad mini is its inmense 32 GB internal storage memory and even though it doesn't have an SD memory slot, it it is more than enough to store tons of applications, games, songs, photos and videos without having to worry about running out of space at all.

This tablet feels much lighter than what you would expect from a tablet like this. This tablet is incredibly slim, with a thickness of just 0.28". Even though this tablet is only 7.87" long, it's able to fit a a 7.9 inches screen. The Apple iPad mini is sold in two different color options, black and white. Talking about its body design materials, the iPad mini is mostly built with Aluminium, giving it a premium design and a better resistance.

Apple designed the iPad mini with an average 7.9" screen, and a resolution of 768 x 1024 , which makes everything look nice. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

The Apple iPad mini features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front side camera. It is also able to film videos in 1920x1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera counts with lots of cool characteristics: auto-focus, face detection shooting, digital image stabilization, HDR mode, geo tagging and time lapse video.

The iPad mini includes wi-fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed internet connection and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a lower speed 4G type or the fastest 3G data connection, using HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The iPad mini works with a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can use both GSM and CDMA networks.

This tablet also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS (Global Positioning System) and NFC (to trigger actions, transfer data or make payments by holding your tablet close to another NFC device or tag), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Compass.

This tablet features an amazing 4440 mAh Li-Polymer non-removable battery, enough to provide the iPad mini with a great battery life. An issue to take into account is that this tablet's battery isn't replaceable so you can't buy a new battery when it starts to have trouble holding its charge, though having 4440 mAh you will probably replace this tablet before it becomes a real problem.

This device is a nice tablet and it costs about 269 dollars, which is quite close to other similar devices. The iPad mini is probably the right choice for you it doesn't matter whether you want it to play games, will use it as a work tablet or want it majorly for social networks and internet browsing.
