Apple's iPad mini is the company's first iPad tablet to deviate from the 9.7-inch screen size. The tablet is essentially a scaled-down iPad 2, featuring the same dual-core A5 SoC and the iPad 2's 1024 x 768 screen resolution with 4:3 aspect ratio. The iPad mini is priced starting at $329 for the 16GB WiFi-only model.

    After one too many leftover turkey sandwiches, topped-off with near-lethal doses of gravy, Thanksgiving – and the lazy weekend that follows it – is over for another year. If you're like many shoppers, you took a break from the food on Friday, bundled up against the cold, and headed out to try snagging yourself a Black Friday deal or two. And while all the Black Friday savings may be behind us, there's one last hurrah to be had, as retailers take one more big stab at getting your holiday shopping dollar, offering today's Cyber Monday savings. Now, some of the deals we mentioned for ...

    Apple's event last Thursday was mainly about iPads and Macs, but the company did take some time to give us information on its new software updates. One of the major changes Apple is pushing to its mobile devices is iOS 8.1, which includes some very needed bug fixes, and even some new enhancements. Cupertino promised the update would reach iOS devices today, and the wait is finally over. Apple has just launched its OTA update to iOS 8.1, and as long as you're rocking any iPad after the iPad 2, or any iPhone after the iPhone 4s, you should be getting the update right this minute. The list of ...

    Apple's iPad event for 2014 is just a couple of days away, and as is customary with every Apple product, there is a lot of speculation over what Apple will announce. The amount of rumors surrounding a thinner iPad are the strongest, but at a time when every OEM is struggling with a stagnant tablet market, we wonder if Apple will make the mistake of keeping things conservative this year. Watch this week's Top 5 as we discuss our predictions for what to expect for Apple's event this Thursday. We have a feeling that there will be more than just iPads announced at this event. Other rumors ...

    A lot of people have always said iPads and other tablets are primarily geared towards entertainment – the consumption of media, no creation. I, on the other hand, have always had a different stance. I've always tried do more with mobile devices, to get more out of them, to create content and get actual work done from mobile. It hasn't always worked out so well for me, particularly when I tried to go tablet-only for a day. However, getting more done with your tablet is entirely possible. One company, Branchfire, is dead set on making that possible with its PDF annotation app iAnnotate. In ...

    It's only natural that companies look for ways to get rid of some extra products in stock before the launch of whatever products come next. If you were wondering if Apple is really launching new iPads and iPhones in the next couple of weeks, AT&T has just proven that it is, as the company is now offering some enticing deals for existing Apple products. If you need a new iPad right now, and can't wait for the newer models to launch, AT&T could be the place to go, though there's a catch. AT&T is offering $200 off the purchase of a cellular iPad, but if you purchase an iPhone 5s ...

    Some view iPads and Android tablets as little more than devices made for multimedia consumption – watching YouTube videos, playing games, reading books, and Web browsing. But some people seek a little more out of their tablets and opt to pair them with a Bluetooth keyboard. The problem is, a lot of mobile keyboards are poorly executed. They're either completely separate or they don't add a lot of protection. ZAGG has the answer to this problem: the Rugged Folio. Available for both iPad mini models and coming soon for the iPad Air, the ZAGG Rugged Folio is both a truly rugged case for ...

    Even though 7-inch tablets have gained a significant level of popularity these days, Apple sadly can't say the same about its iPad mini lineup. The original iPad mini disappointed many with its low-resolution display, and the iPad mini with Retina Display was sadly overshadowed by its bigger brother, the iPad Air. This year we're expecting some minor changes to the bigger iPad Air, but given the fact that this is the third cycle for the iPad mini, it's rumored to be due for a change. New rumors point to the iPad mini dropping a few millimeters in its thickness and being dubbed the iPad ...

    Yesterday, Apple kick-started its annual developer conference, WWDC 2014, with a bang. To no surprise at all, it announced a newer version of OS X, Yosemite, alongside the anticipated update to its mobile platform, iOS 8. And like I so wittingly predicted, Apple has continued its slow marriage of the two contrasting operating systems. Many of the new features for both platforms allow users to start a task on one device and finish on the other, what Apple calls Continuity. For instance, you can start typing a message in iMessage on the iPad and finish typing it on the Mac. Or with iMessage ...

    Apple has never been famous for building crazy products, but it has been quite notorious for building prototypes of anything it thinks of. Apple is also famous for cannibalizing its own legacy products with new ones in order to retain relevance in converging markets, as we saw with the iPod and iPhone. The question is if Apple is actually considering doing the same between the iPhone and iPad, as iPad sales haven't really wowed anyone? Reports have it that Apple is testing an odd and crazy 4-inch iPhone prototype that can actually unfolds to become an iPad mini. The details of how this ...

    What if you woke up and your laptop wasn't working? Work or that term paper isn't going to wait. You've got to get work done, no excuses. You reach for your tablet, then pause. Can you actually get work done with that ol' thing? Most use tablets for leisurely things, such as playing casual games, reading, or even chatting with friends and family. Sure, some people use their Android tablets or iPads to get real work done. And those sticklers with their Windows and Windows RT tablets surely know how to get work done with as little as possible. But could you actually work from a tablet? Would ...

    One of the most interesting drama stories of this decade when it comes to tech is how Apple and Samsung can hurt each-other in the courts, and be partners at the same time. We know that Samsung is in-charge of building a lot of the silicone chips we see on most of Apple's mobile devices, and even some of Apple's laptop computers. Reports have it that Samsung is now going to begin production on more Apple components, and this time away from silicone. At the moment Apple uses AUO to build the displays of Apple's non-retina iPad mini, and then LG and Sharp for its Retina displays. The report ...

    There are plenty of miniature things in this world that are great. Love or hate it, the Mini Cooper S is an incredibly fun car to drive. The iPad mini is a smaller, more affordable version of the iPad Air with just as much power and prowess. Even mini golf is one of my favorite time wasters to partake in when I'm on vacation. If my opinion on "mini" were instead based on the mobile industry's meaning of the word, I would hate practically everything with the mini tag. We all would. Samsung has been doing it for a few years now – throwing the mini tag on the end of its popular Galaxy S ...

    The difference between the Huawei MediaPad M1 and the Apple iPad Mini (and ...with Retina Display) is very small: 0.1 inches. ...but seriously, we're comparing the two in this Huawei MediaPad M1 vs Apple iPad Mini video, and we're looking at similarities, and differences, between the two. You won't see any Android vs iOS remarks in this clip, as this is a question you'll have to answer, in this particular case, yourself. The two OSes couldn't be any more different, and the two tablets are different themselves too. Whether we talk resolution, processing power, or storage, they have very ...

    After looking at the Huawei MediaPad X1 by itself, we are now comparing it with Apple's iPad Mini (not the Retina Display version), not necessarily because Huawei called the tablet out (alongside the Nexus 7) at the event, but because it's a direct competitor for Huawei's crossover. Of course, we have 7.9-inches on the iPad Mini versus 7 inches on the MediaPad, as well as no phone capability versus a slate with an actual headset, but there are a lot of similarities, and differences, between these two. We're leaving the eternal Android vs iOS topic and question to the side, and focus on ...
