Apple iPad Mini

Apple responded to the likes of the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire with its own smaller tablet – and in typical style succeeded in delivering a brilliantly made and highly desirable product that’s arguably handier than its bigger brother. Apple introduced the 7.9-inch iPad Mini as a way to compete in the increasingly popular area of “small” tablets. The screen is actually larger than that of rivals like the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 and very impressive, even if its 1024 x 768 resolution disappoints a little in comparison to the third- and fourth-gen full-size iPad (we’re expecting a Retina display model to appear soon). In true Apple style, the Mini’s build quality and styling is superb, putting it comfortably ahead of its (admittedly cheaper) rivals in the design stakes. It’s a pretty thing with its gently chamfered edges, and weighty enough to feel sturdy – crucially without being too hefty for one-handed use. With swift performance and perfect dimensions for gaming, video watching and ebook reading, the iPad Mini has added yet another valuable member to the iOS family. Price: £269 Apple
