However, just like the new iPhone 5, smaller iPad will be thinner as compared to iPad 2 or new iPad. We have also learned that it will be very easy to accommodate with smaller iPad resolution so all the iPad apps will run easily.
After confirming the Resolution of iPad 2, many rumors are also having that iPad mini will have A5 Processor which is the same processor as that of iPad2 or iPhone 4S. As far as the RAM is concerned, it will have 512 MB Ram. A recent leak from UkrainianiPhone also confirmed that iPad mini will also have SIM slot which means it will be a 3G model.
Different leaks and cases also show that it will have rear and front facing camera. Last but not least, it will surely have new dock connector, Called Lightning.
This is one of the most important and controversial parameters, but according to iMore the price of iPad mini will be somewhat between $199 and $299 only.
