Apple Announces iPad Mini

Apple's done it again!

Apple has done it again!

For those of you who think the new iPad is too large and ungainly for every-day use, Apple has announced the new iPad Mini. The mini, which is currently available for purchase, promises to be a lightweight counterpart to its iPad sibling. Apple clearly didn’t want to disappoint people, and they certainly haven’t.

What does it do?

The iPad Mini features up to 32 gigs of storage, much like its big brother, and comes with a 3G antenna included. Thats right, you don’t need to pay the extra $150 to access internet anywhere AT&T will let you.  Speaking of prices, the iPad Mini starts at only $199. Apple claims it is “twice as fast” as the iPad, for “half the price” (See above image).   The device sports a multitouch screen, and now comes with something even the iPad doesn’t have: 3 megapixel a camera. The keyboard works much like that of the iPad, except smaller, allowing you to type with one hand, much like you would on a cellphone. Apple also added a compass to the device, making it better-suited for map programs, as well as augmented reality. Like the iPad, it  can run virtually every program in the appstore. The device’s battery supports up to 5 hours of 3G usage and up to 10 hours of continuous video, if you’re into carrying and watching film festivals with you. Overall, the device promises to be a great option for people who just think the iPad is a little too big, or is just out of their price range. Head over to your nearest Apple store to check it out.

And before someone comments otherwise, this is meant to be sarcastic.
Thanks to @hdberk for the idea.

In other news, someone besides Apple owns ipad.com, which means someone besides Apple is about to get a TON of money.
