Rumors of a 7-inch iPad mini have been around since just after the launch of the original iPad in 2010, Apple is reportedly targeting October 2012 for its release.
There has been great pressure from consumers to offer some variation of multi-user support – allowing individuals to personalize their own iPad profile with custom wallpapers, alerts, mailboxes and preferences.

Steve Jobs served on the board of directors for Disney and was the co-founder / CEO for Pixar, which was purchased by Disney to create some of the most memorable animated films ever. Jobs also used his knowledge from creating the most profitable retail chain in the world to help Disney rejuvenate their stale retail experience.
Many with a literary, geographical or historical interest were in a state of shock last month when it was announced that Britannica would no longer be printed.
There’s no doubt that an iPad is a useful – even invaluable tool for those with a vested culinary interest. After all, there are literally hundreds of apps for cooking, baking, and preparing that perfect meal from the random scraps of food lurking in the refrigerator.
There’s been much talk of late regarding Apple’s expansive bank balance. As opposed to making a large acquisition like Google or Microsoft with its $100 billion kitty, the fruit company decided a share repurchase program would be a forward-thinking way to utilize some of that eye-watering wealth.
Here she is — the iPad HD! Er, new iPad. Breaking away from the numerical tracking system used before (and still used in the iPhone range), Apple has decided to highlight the most major change in its newest slate by simply dubbing it “new.” By and large, the new guy is the same as the old guy (Home button included), but with a few nice amenities that could very well convince OG iPad owners to upgrade. Upon touching the HD variant, it’s not the overall form factor that grabs us — it’s the screen. Given that we’re unashamed Pixel Density Enthusiasts ’round these parts, seeing a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution display in the same area as the prior ‘Pads is stunning. Nearly two months ago to the day, ASUS wowed our entire CES trailer with a reported 1,920 x 1,200 display on the TF700T; this, however, is something that really needs to be ogled to truly appreciate. In fact, the first viewing conjured up familiar feelings — ones that came to light when placing the iPhone 4 beside the iPhone 3G for the first time.
Facing soaring demand for budget tablets (and one in particular), Apple has announced it will sell the iPad 2 alongside the new iPad, with last year’s model tumbling to a more palatable price of $399 for the WiFi-only model, or $529 for the 3G version. That entry-level price in particular puts it in more direct competition with a slew of mid-range tabs that previously undercut the iPad, including the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and others. Specifically, though, Tim Cook & Co. hope that lower price will attract not just thrifty consumers, but schools looking to issue iPads in large numbers — a move that dovetails with the release of iBooks textbooks and the iBooks Author OS X app earlier this year.
We’re live from Apple’s event in San Francisco where Tim Cook has just announced additional language capabilities for Siri. That disembodied helper, ushered in by the iPhone 4S, is now getting a localized Japanese equivalent as part of the iOS 5.1 update rolling out today and slated to hit Japan over the next few weeks. Looks like those prior leaks were right on the money. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if that camera slider makes the cut.
