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).

'iPad Mini' Pricing to Begin at Approximately $329



ipad_mini_pricing_matrix (1)

9to5Mac offered their suggestions related to the entry price point for Apple’s upcoming smaller iPad set to be released October 23rd. The entry price will be reportedly between the base model of the new, fifth-generation iPod touch ($299) and the currently shipping WiFi-only 16GB iPad 2 ($399). So, the base model of the smaller iPad will likely be priced at a minimum of $329 in the United States. A starting price of $329 makes sense. The new iPod touch will continue to be cheaper than Apple’s new tablet, while the smaller iPad’s pricing will also be nicely spaced under and between the new full-sized iPads.

iFixit Teared Down Apple’s new iPod Touch



ifixit_ipod_touch_5gen_teardown

Experts from a teardown firm iFixit examined the internals of the new fifth-generation iPod touch. The teardown offers a look at how Apple has managed to pack all of the details into a body, which has 20 percent less volume than the fifth-generation iPhone. The iPod touch lacks cellular communications technology and carries fewer details, which are consolidated into a handful of parts. The battery and logic board are smaller than in the iPhone 5 and they are arranged in a top-and-bottom layout unlike the side-by-side layout used in the iPhone.
