Apple has never been known to abide by industry trends; instead, they have always been known to be trend setters more than followers. The iPhone, iPad and iPod touch are three very good examples of products that have sparked innovation in their respective segment. However, last month, it seemed as if Apple was finally playing catch up when they launched the iPad mini. The 7-inch tablet segment received a big boost after Google launched the Nexus 7 at a very aggressive price. On the surface, the iPad mini seems like a shrunken down version of the iPad and in a way, it is just that. However, in order to keep the pricing competitive, Apple has had to cut some corners which you may or may not like.

Design and Build
The iPad mini measures about 7.9-inches diagonally and features an LED-backlit IPS panel. The aspect remains the same as its big brother so apps don’t need any changing. Apple has chosen to go with a very slim bezel for the sides so they could squeeze in a larger display in a chassis that’s similar to a 7-inch tablet. This makes the screen appear a lot bigger but it does make it a bit tricky to use in portrait mode as the sides of your thumb invariably tend to hit the screen. This is not much of a problem when you’re holding the tablet with one hand. The home button takes its rightful place at the bottom while the front facing camera sits stark center on the top.
