The iPad Mini Joins New Apple Products

By: Absolute Team | 10/23/2012

Apple today announced a whole slew of new products including a new thinner 13" MacBook Pro Retina, another upgrade to the iPad, and a new iMac. The biggest change of the day was that Apple has added another entrant into the tablet marketplace, the iPad Mini, its first foray into the mini tablet niche. Building upon previous successes with its existing iPad models, Apple is aiming to capture a demographic looking for a less expensive and/or smaller tablet (though it's a more expensive option than some).

The mini tablet market tends to be split between offering a larger environment for tv watching / book reading than e-readers as well as offering a lightweight computing option. Apple's new iPad Mini comes with some impressive features:

  • A 7.9" display (2/3 the size of the full iPad, larger than competing mini tablets)
  • Front and rear cameras
  • Weighs 0.68lbs
  • Screen resolution of 1024 x 768
  • 10 hour battery life

As with other Apple products (iPads, iPhones, Macs), you can count on Absolute Manage to secure the new iPad Mini with ease. Absolute Manage allows organizations to remotely manage and secure all of their endpoints from a single console, including PC, Mac, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone devices.
