For serious portability, the iPad is not ideal. Sure, if you have one, you’re probably not running out for an iPad Mini, but if you’re in the group of consumers who wanted a smaller and more affordable app machine, here you go. Yes, there are going to be critics who hate on Apple for everything they put out, but the iPad Mini has its merits (for a price). The screen measures 7.9″ on the diagonal, it’s ultra thin (7.2 mm thick), weighs about the same as a pad of paper and, while there is no retina display, and will appear sharper than an iPad 2. It sports the basic interior of an iPad 2 with a Lightning Port instead of the old 30-pin connector and has an A5 chip and LTE. Is it something world-changing from Apple? No, but it is another option for anyone in the market for an eReader size tablet. Preorders start Friday and they ship November 2.
