Several hours after iPad mini was officially launched, analysts hurried to write their first reviews of the new device. Judging by their opinions, it looks like iPad Mini has made a great first impression and it could actually be a powerful competitor in the holiday season, says the Associated Press.
It’s been a long time since tech lovers have all agreed that a newly released device will become a success. It was Apple’s new iPad Mini that got everyone hyped up after it was officially released on Tuesday during a special event held in San Jose, California. The tablet is a great deal for the upcoming holiday season due to the good quality price ratio.
The 7.9-inch screen makes it easier for customers to stuff the tablet in Christmas stockings. The device is also thinner than the bigger version because the company wanted to enable users to take photos, surf the Web, read books and watch movies while controlling the tablet with only one hand. In reality, what producers wanted was a good product that could compete against Amazon and Google’s tablets. And they succeeded, as customers will have a hard time figuring out which tablet they should get for their loved ones.
The smaller size of the new iPad doesn’t seem to cause any inconvenience when it comes to watching movies or playing games. In fact, the images look just as lush as they would with the larger tablet. Moreover, news articles and photos perfectly fit the screen of the iPad Mini, so owners won’t have to squint their eyes when performing various tasks on the tablet. Writing an email or a note on the new iPad is actually easier thanks to the lighter and thinner shape of the tablet.
As usual, it is the price that will eventually make the difference because customers will have to decide whether it is worth paying $399 for a smaller iPad or not. Although their features are slightly different than the ones offered by iPad Mini, some customers may still consider purchasing a Kindle Fire or a Nexus tablet, instead.
