Apple has announced the long awaited iPad mini. It sports a 7.9-inch display at 1024 x 768 resolution, matching up with the iPad 2. The new iPad mini is just 7.2mm thin, and weighs in at .68 pounds. It features the same anodized edges that you'll find on the iPhone 5. On the inside you'll find the A5 processor, 5-megapixel rear camera that records in 1080p, and a FaceTime HD camera up front. With the 7.9-inch display, you get 35% more screen real estate than you'd find on the 7-inch Kindle Fire or Nexus 7 tablets, which is likely what Apple is hoping you realize since they are charging quite a bit more for the iPad mini than competing 7-inch tablets.  You'll be able to get a Black & Slate or White & Silver iPad mini starting at $329 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model, and the price jumps up to $429 for 32GB, and $529 for 64GB. Want an LTE model? Those come at an extra $130, so you are looking at $459 for 16GB LTE, $559 for 32GB LTE, and $659 for 64GB LTE. You'll be able to pre-order the iPad mini beginning on October 26, and they'll be delivered (and available in stores) on November 2.
