Apple unveils iPad Mini, new iTunes a no-show

Apple has officially unveiled its new iPad Mini at a conference last night - but the new iTunes was a no-show.

The iPad Mini, along with a fourth generation iPad will hit stores on November 2 - but an updated version of iTunes, which was said to be coming at the end of October, is still nowhere to be seen.

The iPad Mini sports a 7.9-inch (20cm) display, weighs in at 0.68 pounds (0.3kg) and is 7.2mm (0.3 inches) thick, a quarter thinner than the new iPad.

It will be available in three memory configurations and prices start at $329 (£269 in the UK) for 16GB, over $200 more than competitors like Amazon’s Kindle.

Two weeks later on November 16, Wi-Fi + 4G models will hit the shelves at $459 for 16GB, $559 for 32GB, and $659 for 64GB.

The fourth generation iPad, which was launched at the same event, has upgraded components, including an A6X processor, which doubles CPU and graphics performance.

The new iPad will come in white and black, and starts at $499 for the 16GB version. It has the same new Lightning connector found on the iPhone 5, an upgraded "HD" front-facing camera (720p), and 2X faster Wi-Fi.
