					4th Generation Apple iPads Unveiled Including iPad Mini
Apple just announced plans to release the fourth-generation iPad as well as
the iPad mini. Both of the new iOS6 tablets will be available for purchase
starting November 2, 2012.

The iPad mini features a new design that's supposed to be 23 percent thinner
and 53 percent lighter than the third-gen iPad. It has a 7.9-inch Multi-Touch
display with a 1024-by-768 resolution, as well as the front-facing FaceTime
HD camera, a 5-megapixel iSight camera on the back, and a dual-core A5
chip. With a new aluminum and glass design, the iPad mini measures just
7.2mm thin and weighs in at a mere 0.68 pounds.

Other iPad mini features include full 1080p HD video capabilities, access to
iCloud's Shared Photo Streams, and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi support for
speeds up to 150Mbps.

That fourth-generation iPad will have a 9.7-inch Retina display and the
FaceTime HD camera. It will also have Apple's new A6X chip, which boasts
double the CPU and graphics power of the third-gen model.

Apple says that both of the new tablets have iOS6 and boast 10 hours of
battery life. Both models also support the newly launched Lightning connector,
with accessories that can accommodate cameras, SD cards and VGA or
HDMI digital video.

As expected, both of the new iPads will also work with the over 700,000 apps
currently available through iTunes, as well as the 275,000 apps specifically
designed for the iPad. This includes the new iBooks app for iPad, which lets
users read eBooks in over 40 languages.
"iPad mini is every inch an iPad. With its gorgeous 7.9-inch display, iPad mini
features the same number of pixels as the original iPad and iPad 2, so you
can run more than 275,000 apps designed specifically for iPad," said Philip
Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing. "iPad mini is as
thin as a pencil and as light as a pad of paper, yet packs a fast A5 chip,
FaceTime HD and 5 megapixel iSight cameras and ultrafast wireless -- all
while delivering up to 10 hours of battery life."

The iPad mini with WiFi will be available in black and slate or white and silver,
with a starting price of $329 for the 16GB model, $429 for the 32GB version
and $529 for the 64GB tablet. The fourth-generation iPad with WiFi comes in
black or white with an MSRP of $499 for 16GB, $599 for 32GB and $699 for
the 64GB model.

Those interested in the iPad mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular and fourth generation
iPad with WiFi + Cellular will have a bit more of a wait. Apple has yet to
announce a formal release date, only saying that these versions will start
shipping "a couple of weeks after the Wi-Fi models." AT&T, Sprint and
Verizon customers will get the goods first, with the iPad mini with Wi-Fi +
Cellular priced at $459 for the 16GB model, $559 for 32GB and $659 for the
64GB version. The same providers will get the fourth generation iPad with
WiFi + Cellular, with prices listed as $629 for the 16GB model, $729 for the
32GB model and $829 for the 64GB model.

If you're still pining for the iPad 2, Apple is selling those now. The 16GB WiFi
model is priced at $399, with the 16GB WiFi + 3G going for $529.
