iPad mini

The next big small big medium thing here is!  Like most of Apple’s releases, this was one of the worst kept secrets in the tech industry, but at least we now have official specs on it.

The aluminum body is 7.2mm thick, weighs in at under 3/4 of a pounds, and the non-Retina display is the right between your iPhone and iPad 3 at 7.9″.  The A5 processor, 5MP iSight camera  and front-facing FaceTime HD camera are all standard Apple fare, but the all new Lightning connector will have everyone running for adapters after they get their new iPad. Available in black or white, it arrives November 2.  You might want to get in line now.

Guess we have to stop calling our iPod Touch an iPad mini…
