Apple Likely To Launch iPad Mini

  • The Apple-Android war heats up as the tech world is rife with rumors of an iPad Mini launch. If the leaks are to be believed this smaller tablet shall be in direct competition with Google Nexus and Amazon Kindle Fire. Although Apple has not officially announced any plans of such a release yet, the market news is that the screen of this new tablet is likely to measure 7-8 inches diagonally, at least 1.7 inches less than the current iPad. The handheld device is likely to be priced around $199 and to be released this year. What remains to be seen is how Apple handles such a launch after Steve Jobs’ scathing criticism of smaller tablets.
