What is interesting with the IPad Mini

 

 

 

The i pad mini just came out just recently and to me I feel that it is one of those things that i feel is unnecessary to have because not be cause of its price but more on how there are other types of tablets with the same design and same system design that is more affordable. Some tech junkies assume that a new, smaller iPad will run Apple’s Retina display, which makes the latest iPad’s screen super-sharp. Competitors like the Nexus 7 and Amazon’s newly revealed Kindle Fire HD boast similarly impressive resolutions. However, Apple could easily go with the iPad 2’s less “resolutionary” display to keep costs down.   Using the iPad 2’s slightly slower A5 processor in the iPad Mini would continue “Apple’s  time-tested strategy of extending the life of already-developed technology by continuing to sell it, just cheaper,” says Kyle Wagner at Gizmodo. This could be problematic, however, as the chip “might not be powerful enough” to support a potential Retina display.

    Apple drives me crazy sometimes because of how often a new upgraded version of their products comes out so often. I do not own an iPad or iPad mini and have no interest in purchasing one. I will always get trapped in feeling that I am behind in technology. For example, I bought my iPhone 4 maybe a year or so ago and they now have the 5 after they released the 4S. Although I am content with my phone, I still feel behind in the times.

    I think this is the start of Apple’s downfall. They’re a really successful company but without Steve Jobs they might not last. It looks like they’re just relying on revisions of their old products, instead of actually making new products. Bad idea, Apple!

    I agree with KSTOUT apple has to find new innovative people to continue this legacy. I do plan on investing an getting an ipad to later help me with the more digital side of graphics but I was instructed just to get the 2 so I can get the full usability.

    Mini is thin and light, but the price is overpriced, compared with the other smaller tablets. Apple needs to create something new instead of just changing the sizes.
