Consumers demonstrated with their wallets that there is a market for a 7-inch tablet. Apple, passing up no opportunity to make even more money, has finally responded with a smaller and less expensive version of its popular iPad, announcing the fourth generation iPad at the California Theater in San Jose, California. There is no doubt that holiday shoppers will buy the high-tech stocking stuffer for friends and family, but should you integrate the iPad Mini into your business? Here are 5 reasons entrepreneurs should add the iPad Mini to their list of must-have digital tools.
It’s smaller and faster
A tablet can definitely come in handy when you have to attend an unexpected virtual conference or meeting where you need to view a video, or presentation slides. One of the complaints about the iPad is that even though it’s much more portable than lugging around your laptop, it’s too large to carry around on a regular basis. The iPad Mini has a 7.9-inch screen and a 1,024 x 768 pixel display resolution. Weighing only 0.63 pounds, the 7.2 millimeters thin gadget is 23% thinner and 53% lighter than the third-generation iPad. On-the-go entrepreneurs are more likely to take the iPad Mini along if they want to get more things done. The iPad Mini offers ultra-fast connectivity with its A6X processor and increased LTE chipset. The processor performance is nearly twice as fast as A5X chip found in the last gen iPad.
