Apple has finally put the curtains off from much awaited and much speculated iPad Mini in a event covered with tag line “We have got more to show you”. Loaded with 7.9 inch screen Apple iPad Mini is directly challenging untapped 7-inch Tablet market players like Samsung Tab 2, Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire. As we already informed you, Apple has tagged starting level iPad little higher than all in-class contenders, starting from $329.

With 5 inch iSight Camera and 10 hrs battery life Apple has, undoubtedly, made a wining bet in small screen size Tablet market. Dual-Core A5 Chip, 5 MP Rear camera and iOS 6 install is enough to entice small size Tablet lovers towards Apple iPad Mini. However $329 price tag – around $130 more – could upset many long time geeks who were holding their horses to loose their pocket for Apple iPad Mini.

Though, Apple could well justify the cost pointing at 1-inch larger display than 7-inch Tablets, high resolution HD camera and , off course, a product from world’s second best brand, it would be interesting to see how many people out there in market get sold to these justifications.

  • 7.9-inch screen with 1024-by-768 resolution
  • New aluminum glass enclosure
  • Dual-core A5 chip
  • FaceTime HD camera

Besides, iPad Mini, there were few interesting – controversial too – facts Apple revealed about its iPad family:

  • More than 100 Million iPad were sold in last one and half years.
  • Non-iPad Tablets holds just 9% of market – something that could be challenged by Android easily.
  • iPad accounts for 90% of Tablet web traffic
  • 35 Billion apps have been downloaded

Interestingly, despite of such claims and much-hyped iPad Mini launch, Apple share value plunged by 0.9%. Definitely  iPad Mini failed to make a positive first impression on market – if not on users. It would be interesting to see how market as well as users will react to iPad Mini in next few days – specially when it would be compared to weekend sales figures of its predecessors.

And, here the launch video of Apple iPad Mini
