The tablet will feature a 1024 x 768 resolution screen, unfortunately it is not of retina quality and thus not a “prime” device. The tablet will be powered by A5 chip and — RAM, along of which a 5 megapixel camera will complete the design. iPad mini will be available in varying memory sizes ranging from 8 GB to 64 GB, since the iPad mini wont have a retina display it means that applications will be lighter, so 8GB memory option is not that bad. Let’s take a deeper look at the specifications of iPad mini.
