Introducing the 8.8″ iPad mini mega – funny CONAN spoof [video]

CONAN frequently pokes fun at Apple products and promotional videos/ads, and this time out is no different. Introducing the iPad mini mega, the 8.8″ device and a slew of others. It’s almost like how it would be if Apple decided to follow the Motorola DROID marketing and product release style. Am I right? Kudos to 9to5Mac for spotting…

TiP readers already receiving iPad mini Smart Covers! Where’s mine?

After publishing a report yesterday that some lucky early adopters were already receiving their Smart Cover orders, one of our own readers got in touch with us, and shared his gallery comparing the iPad mini Smart Cover with the iPad 2 version.

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.

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.

iPad (4th gen) vs. Nexus 10 – Spec Sheet Comparison

Google was supposed to have a big Android event today, however due to a hurricane set to hit the area it was going to be held, the event was cancelled. That didn’t stop it from announcing some new products via Press Release, however. One of those new products includes a Nexus 10 tablet, which brings the “Pure Google” experience into the world of 10-inch…

The iPad mini: Not impressed… [Editorial]

A while back, I examined the prospects of the iPad mini, trying to determine whether this was innovation or exploitation. Back then, I decided that the iPad mini was a product designed to exploit an already established market. To be honest, it was a no-brainer. Back in the day, Steve Jobs had slated the 7 inch tablet because he thought it would bring about…

Amazon posts hostile Kindle fire and iPad mini comparison on homepage

You will have read earlier that Amazon’s Kindle Fire sales actually tripled week-on-week after the iPad mini announcement. People looking forward to the event were perhaps hoping Apple would release something more competitively priced.
