Yep, it’s been out for a while but we wanted to include it in our growing ‘Specifications’ series of posts where we provide a standardised look at what’s on offer in smartphones, tablets and mini PCs.
The Apple iPad mini Wi-Fi gets the list of features and pricing balanced pretty well in this compact design. Inside, you’ll find options such as an LED-backlit IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen panel with 768×1024-pixel resolution within its 7.9-inch frame and a cache of 512 MB of RAM to play with.
Other major features include the Apple A5 processor powering on with a 1GHz CPU clock rate, while a PowerVR SGX543MP2 core inside the processor drives that 7.9-inch panel.
You get on-board storage, taken care of by your choice of 16/32/64 GB of flash but there’s no external storage options available. The operating system is iOS 6, upgradable to iOS 6.1.4, planned upgrade to iOS 7.0. Peripheral connectivity is covered by the dock and with Apple’s Digital AV Adapter kit, you can connect it up to your big-screen TV. In addition, personal communications is taken care of by Bluetooth v4.0 with A2DP and wide area network connectivity comes in the form of 802.11 a/b/g/n-standard Wi-Fi.
You can capture still images via the 5 MP (2592×1944 pixels) with autofocus camera on the back of the device or simply use the front-facing 1.2 MP camera for personal shots and FaceTime conferencing. The device also supports video recording up to 1080p@30fps.
The Apple iPad mini Wi-Fi weights in at 308 grams and has external dimensions of 200 x 134.7 x 7.2 mm. Apple announced this new model back in October 2012.
