As rumored, Apple announced the new iPad mini at today's media event. The device features a 7.9-inch display with a resolution of 1024x768 pixels, measures just 7.2 millimeters thin and weighs 0.68 pounds.
With the same resolution as the iPad 2, all existing iPad apps that work on the older iPad 2 will work on the iPad mini without any need for developers to make modifications to their existing apps.
The iPad Mini comes in the same two colours as the iPhone 5, White/Silver and Black/Slate with 16, 32 and 64GB options. The iPad Mini also has the option of celullar support. The iPad Mini includes worldwide support for LTE and will work with Vodacom, MTN and Cell C in South Africa.
However as with the iPhone 5, if you purchase an iPad with Retina Display or an iPad Mini from the USA it may not work in South Africa!
The WiFi version should be available in South Africa in early December with the cellular version expected early 2013.
