Apple a anuntat oficial ca, in primul weekend de la lansare, a vandut peste 3 milioane de tablete iPad Mini si din a patra generatie iPad. CEO-ul Apple, Tim Cook, a declarat ca evolutia vanzarilor este peste asteptari, inregistrandu-se un nou record. Detalii aflati in comunicatul de presa de mai jos.

iPad 4 si iPad Mini sunt pozitionate pentru a profita de vanzarile masive inregistrate in perioada sarbatorilor de iarna.

iPad Mini are  o grosime de 7,2 milimetri si o greutate de circa 300 de grame. Ecranul noii tablete, de 7,9 inci (20 cm) are aceeasi rezolutie ca si iPad original.

Versiunea mini are aceeasi durata de 10 ore de utilizare ca predecesorul de dimensiuni normale, dar aceasta va fi cea mai mica baterie produsa vreodata, potrivit Apple. Primele review-uri la iPad Mini le puteti citi aici

iPad Mini a atras numeroase comentarii pozitive in randul fanilor, nu putini fiind cei dispusi sa isi achizitioneze noua tableta. Potrivit analistului Jay Yarow de la Business Insider, clientii ar trebui sa se gandeasca insa de doua ori inainte de a merge la magazin sa cumpere tableta cu ecranul de 7 inch.
