(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Apple’s second generation iPad mini features many must have upgrades for those looking to get a new tablet this year.
Like its predecessor, the tablet features a 7.9-inch display screen but has a 2048 X 1536 resolution and 326 pixels per inch.
One of the main new features is the Retina display.
The high resolution makes the picture sharper and crisper than ever before, with a “higher resolution than an HDTV”.
The new A7 processor delivers a performance of “up to four times faster CPU and up to eight times faster graphics performance than the previous generation.”
By using MIMO Technology and two antennas, the iPad’s mini Wi-Fi is faster than ever, and the Wi-Fi + Cellular model adds more LTE bands so that users can get faster and connections from anywhere.
This tablet starts at $399 for the Wi-Fi model and $529 for the Wi-Fi + Cellular model, and can be purchased from various retailers or at the Apple store.
