Apple announced at their event on Tuesday the anticipated iPad Mini, which was the worst kept secret since the iPhone 5. The iPad Mini is like a slightly larger iPod Touch, or a slightly smaller iPad, depending on how you look at. Some have said it looks quite similar to a Galaxy Note.

Here’s a look at the specs:

  • Display size: 7.9 inches diagonally
  • Display resolution: 1024 by 768 pixels
  • Weight: 0.68 pound (0.69 pound for cellular versions)
  • Cameras: 5-megapixel camera on back and a low-resolution camera on front, for videoconferencing
  • Battery life: 10 hours
  • Software: iOS 6

The iPad Mini, which will compete with other 7-inch tablets such as Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s new Kindle Fire HD, starts from $329 for the basic 16GB, Wi-Fi-only model. The Mini was expected to start at $249.

Apple also announced a fourth-generation iPad with a faster processor, plus upgrades to several other products, including the 13-inch MacBook Pro and iMac.
