Review: iPad mini as thin as a pencil
When the iPad mini was released (on Friday), I was a little concerned about the new device. Why wouldn't someone pay a little extra, and get a full-sized iPad? I was wrong.
The iPad mini is much lighter, and as thin as a pencil. It seems easier to hold than the normal iPad.
I found connecting to the WiFi and 3G network easy and the speed was good.
The only down side I found was the retina display. If you have an iPad 3 and move to this, you will notice the difference.
It does look like Apple might have rushed production to get these out the doors as quickly as possible. The final product is not as shiny, and the edges are slightly sharp.
I'd give the iPad mini an 8/10.
