As expected, Apple announced at an event today the new iPad Mini. With a 7.9" diagonal screen, but the exact same pixels and resolution as the current iPad, the iPad Mini weighs in at 0.68 lbs., 53% less than the 3rd generation iPad. It will be available in both black and white. What was suprising is that Apple also announced a New iPad, a fourth generation model, just 6 months after releasing the 3rd generation. This release comes with marked improvement in the tablet's technology and capabilities.
