You can hold it in one hand: The iPad Mini

“It is every inch an iPad”. Well, it’s smaller, obviously.

IT’S AS THIN as a pencil. You can hold it one hand. It won’t love you like a puppy, but it’s close enough.

The iPad Mini display has the same screen resolution as the iPad 2, it carries the new lightning connector and it features a Facetime HD camera on the front, and a 5MP iSight camera on the back.

Clocking in at 7.2mm thin, and weighing 0.68lbs, a 16GB WiFi iPad Mini will start shipping to Ireland in just a few weeks with a pre-ordering service opening on Friday. It costs $329 (the cheapest yet).
