iPad mini gets Siri but iPad 2 still left without



The new iPad mini is compatible with Apple's Siri voice recognizing assistant, however the iPad 2 still won't be able to access the feature. It seems that Siri will never make it to the iPad 2, as the tablet was only mentioned in passing in a brief a comparison to the new iPad mini. It is unclear why Apple decided to once again pass over the iPad 2, though it could mean that Apple may axe the product from the tablet line as it is more expensive and less capable than its newly-released sibling. Moreover, the mini-model of the iPad has the same screen resolution as the 9.7-inch iPad 2's.

How Apple made the iPad mini 23% thinner and 53% lighter




Yesterday Apple introduced the new iPad mini which has the same resolution as iPad 2 in a smaller 7.9 inch form factor that's two thirds the price of the latest iPad. But last year, it was more likely that Apple would make the iPod touch larger than reducing the size of the iPad. Apple went far further and did both, expanding the Retina Display iPod touch (along with iPhone 5), and scaling the iPad down.

This effectively gives Apple two very different new devices with nearly the same pixel count and very similar prices: the 4 inch iPod touch ($299/32GB and $399/64GB) and 7.9 inch iPad mini (16GB/$329; 32GB/$429; 64GB/$529; each with a 4G LTE cellular option for $130 more).
