iPad mini shipments arriving early – Unboxed by user [Gallery]

This is a turn up for the books! One lucky iPad mini pre-orderer from France emailed images over to iGen.fr showing his recently arrived tablet.

iPad mini review roundup – Great size and weight, price too high

Image Credit: TechCrunch (link below) Here at TiP we’re not lucky enough to be in Apple “circle of trust”. Contrary to popular belief, we don’t get given Apple products to try and review, we go out and buy them with our own cash. So, when it comes to pre-release reviews, we have to hunt out the “big guys” who are fortunate enough to get time with the…

If you’ve been considering ordering a fourth-gen iPad from Apple to receive in time for Friday, then you’re too late, because Apple’s initial supply of the device has run down today, meaning that you’ll be waiting at least a week until you can hold your new iPad, should you order one now.

iPad 4 benchmarks make for impressive reading

Apple’s “new iPad” made waves back in March with its impressive 9.7″ Retina display and graphics performance. The A5X chip boasted “quad-core graphics” and increased speed and RAM compared to the previous iPad. That said, those early 3-gen iPad adopters probably weren’t too impressed when Apple announced another model that was twice as fast as the one they…

Some iPad mini Smart Covers arriving early

Alongside the iPad mini last week, Apple announced a new set of Smart Covers. Going up for preorder the same day as the iPad mini itself, a few lucky customers have already started receiving them.
