iPad Mini day, Live BLOG
Today is iPad mini day. Apple is expected to announce the widely rumored iPad mini in an event that promises much more than that. Tim Cook is also expected to announce a new Macbook Pro 13 inch Retina Display computer and the release of iTunes 11 previously announced at the iPhone 5 event.
The iPad mini is expected to have a screen size of 7.85″ and sport a retina display. Specs have been thrown around the net but nothing seems certain. Prices are expected to be around $299 to $349. This new slate is destined to compete with the mid sized Kindle Fire and the Galaxy Note. This opens up a new market for Apple and is sure to dominate as it had in the past. Expect all the features of its bigger brother and maybe a surprise here and there.
The Macbook Pro is a no brainer as the whole line is destined to feature the much loved retina display. Expect the new 13 inch machine to be thinner and be prized around the 1700 mark. The new iTunes is expected to be released today featuring a new more robust iCloud integration. Be sure to check out this blog for live feed of the event starting out at 10 am pacific time.
