San Jose, Calif. — Following months of speculation, Cupertino-based Apple on Tuesday unveiled a miniature version of its popular iPad tablet computer, to be known as the “iPad Mini,” as well as the surprise announcement of a fourth-generation iPad. With a 7.9-inch screen, the iPad Mini will compete head-to-head with smaller tablets such as Amazon‘s Kindle Fire and Google‘s Nexus 7 — though the latter two both feature higher screen resolution. Other features include dual cameras for FaceTime, faster Wi-Fi and 10 hours of battery life. Prices will start at $329 for a 16GB Wi-Fi version — higher than the $200-$250 predicted by most analysts. But the biggest surprise was the unveiling of a new iPad, just six months after Apple introduced its third-generation model. The fourth-generation model, which starts at $499 for 16 GB Wi-Fi, features new chip that doubles the performance of CPU tasks and graphics, plus a new image processor. The morning event in San Jose also saw the company unveil updates to the Mac Mini, iMac and a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display.
