Apple was pleased to announce that more than 3 million devices were sold in just 3 days since the launch of the new iPad Mini and fourth generation iPad.

Late this October, Apple introduced two new iPads to the world: the new iPad Mini, a device that can be easily used with just one hand, and the 4th generation iPad, the most powerful Apple tablet so far. Both devices went on sale on November 2 and, unsurprisingly, the demand was quite high. In just 3 days since the launch of the new devices, Apple sold more than 3 million units.


Customers around the world love the new iPad mini and fourth generation iPad,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We set a new launch weekend record and practically sold out of iPad minis. We're working hard to build more quickly to meet the incredible demand.”

The iPad Mini, a device with a revolutionary new design, has the following to offer:
  • Dual-core A5 chip for a fast and responsive experience.
  • 7.9-inch Multi-Touch Display, 7.2mm thin beautiful aluminum and glass design.
  • Front-facing FaceTime HD camera and a 5MP iSight camera on the back you can use to snap sharp pictures and record full 1080p HD video. Both cameras feature backside illumination; just the iSight camera features image stabilization.
  • LTE ultrafast wireless performance (only available through select carriers) and dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi support for speeds of up to 150 Mbps (based on theoretical speeds, actual speeds may vary).
  • 10 hours of battery life (depending on device settings, usage and other factors).
  • Powered by iOS 6, the most advanced mobile operating system in the world.
  • Price (suggested retail price): $329 for the 16GB model, $429 for the 32Gb model, and $529 for the 64GB model..
  • Colors: black & slate or white & silver.
The main features of the 4th generation iPad are:
  • Powerful New A6X Chip, twice as fast than the A5X chip.
  • Ultrafast wireless connection, twice as fast as any previous-generation iPad
  • Beautiful 9.7 inch Retina Display, 3.1 million pixels
  • Price: 16GB model - $499, 32GB model - $599, 64GB model - $699.

The iPad Mini and the 4th generation iPad are available in 34 countries around the world. The devices will ship in a few weeks in the US and many other countries later this year.
