Apple recently unveiled the iPad mini at their event in San Jose, California. The 7.9-inch device had been under wraps for quite awhile, but is set to go head-to-head with the Google Nexus 7. Just like the iPad 2, the iPad mini sports a 1024×768 display, so apps should work properly without the need for resizing.

The 7.2mm, .68 pound device isn’t as powerful as its predecessor as it runs on the last-generation A5 CPU. Battery life expected to last about 10 hours. It packs a 5MP camera and has optional LTE capabilities. Pre-orders for the $329, 16GB Wi-Fi only model starts on October 26th (Friday) and is set to ship on November 2nd. The 32GB and 64GB will cost $429 and $529 respectively. The LTE-enabled version will cost $459 for the 32GB and up to $659 for the 64GB.
