iPad mini, the fourth generation of iPad is launched on October 23rd, 2012. As the name already indicated, it will be smaller than the previous generations of iPads targeting a new user group who would like to have the iPad experience at a smaller size and lower price tag.
The new and beautiful designed iPad mini features a 7.9 inch display and weights only half of the previous 9.7 inch models. Apple announced two versions of the iPad mini with different capacities. The iPad mini with Wi-Fi as well as with the Wi-Fi with Cellular function comes each in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.
In Hong Kong, the Wi-Fi edition is listed with HK$ 2,588 (16GB), HK$ 3,388 (32GB) and HK$ 4,188 (64GB). In case you are interested to purchase with both Wi-Fi and Cellular functions you have to add HK$ 1,000 on each model (16GB = HK$ 3,588; 32GB = HK$ 4,388 and 64GB = HK$ 5,188).
For all of you who are interested to get one of the new iPad mini’s with the Wi-Fi and Cellular functions prepare to get one of the Nano-SIMs (similar to the new iPhone 5).
Pre-ordering the new iPad mini starts in Hong Kong on October 26h, 2012. Officially, the new device will hit the shelves in the Apple stores starting on 8:00 am on November 2nd, 2012. For all, who are interested in both the Wi-Fi and Cellular functions have to wait a little bit longer. Official launch day will be late November 2012.
