The Mini iPad
Get ready to line up; another Apple event is just around the corner.
Apple is hosting an event in San Francisco on October 23 and analysts are expecting another big product announcement. Fresh off the heels of the iPhone 5 this big unveil will most likely be the mini iPad.
For months people have been predicting that the tech powerhouse will release a smaller, less costly version of the tablet to take on competing devices. These include Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7.
Both of those devices have 7 inch screens and sell for just under $200. One Wall Street analyst says he has already had the chance to test out the mini iPad. He says it is 7.85 inches and offers customers a more mobile experience.
One person who wouldn’t be happy to hear the news is late founder Steve Jobs. He said the 7 inch screen is useless for tablets and they should come with sandpaper so people can file down their fingers to use them.
Still, Apple is moving forward and customers will no doubt be right behind it.
