The sense of an iPad Mini
This is no longer siren. Now it’s serious. The Wall Street Journal has echoed that Apple’s Asian suppliers have begun mass production of the components of a new product, a smaller tablet than the iPad … Yes, the presumed iPad Mini.
With a screen size of 7.85 inches, the iPad Mini would enter fully into a segment of the Tablets for which competition is not ready the current iPad and 9’7 inches. One segment that has been popular since the emergence of tablets in 2010, and whose greatest exponents to Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 , the Nexus 7 , or Kindle Fire 7″ . All with significantly lower prices than the iPad, especially the Nexus and Kindle, both below $200 in its basic version. It would be expected that with this new product, came a corresponding drop in price, and specification. Nothing Retina display, or graphics processor with quad core A5X.
The questions along the way are there. iPhone and iPod Touch 4-inch iPad 9’7 … Do you really need an intermediate device? In 2010 keynote, Jobs referred to the iPad as the intermediate device between the iPhone and the MacBook. The key to this new size could be something that happened in New York last January, when Apple introduced iBooks 2 and iBooks Author, with a clear intention: to immerse themselves in education, revolutionizing our concept so far textbooks and classroom learning.
With a more manageable device (especially considering children’s hands), the idea of replacing the books for iPads takes shape. If we add a more affordable price and another trump card of Cupertino, the result can bring surprises in the U.S. education system, where one of the powers of government is the maintenance and financial management of the school supplies.
Not forgetting the acceptance that are taking the new seven-inch tablets, some with outstanding performance and excellent performance for a low price, as the Nexus 7 or the latest Kindle machine. Its handling is mostly better bulwark against its bigger brothers. In addition, worldwide sales of tablets will soar by 85% this year, according to iSuppli IHS-, reaching 126 million units. They may have reason to worry, Google and Amazon, if Apple enters the field. As has been happening for a while, exciting times lie ahead for technology lovers.Tags: iPad, mini iPad, Tablets
