iPad mini review
After going to Target today, there weren't any iPads on display. I went to the person who works in the electronic section and asked him where the 2 new iPads were. He said that they didn't have the 2 new iPads out on display and they only had the iPad mini out in the front desk. He said he couldn't get the iPad 4 out yet, but he opened an iPad mini and gave it to me to use (he opened an iPad mini just for me!). The box of the iPad mini was a little bigger then an iPhone box (which is pretty small). In the box you get the usual assortment of items; finger tips, apple stickers, user manual. Also in the box, you get the lightning connector and the power block. The power block was the size you get with an iPhone, not the type with the full size iPad. Now to the iPad mini. The size is just like a normal tablet, except the iPad mini is a little more square than a normal tablet. Compared to the iPad 3 (which was on display) the iPad mini is small. The screen almost comes out to the edge on the left and right. The back of the iPad mini isn't the liquid metal back like the iPhone 5, but is more like an aluminum. When I turned it over to take a look at the back, there were finger prints all over (and I was using it for like 2 minutes before too). You could see almost every finger print that touched it. On the back, the finger prints looked like they were greasy and oily. When I turned it over to the front, there were big fogged circles around my fingers which then lead to finger prints all over the screen. When I turned it on, the slide to unlock slider was very small (probably to fit the screen with the same lock screen scale picture). With it on, it's like any other iPad you've seen. The speed isn't anything special because of it having the same chip as the iPad 2. The camera is great just like the iPad 3 or 4. 5 megapixel camera on the back and a 1.2 megapixel camera on the front with video capability of 720p HD video.
That is the iPad mini review and I hope to have the iPad 4 review up soon (after I am able to see and use one).
