iPad nano Fills Micro-Tablet Niche For Apple

Formerly known as the "iPod Touch" Apple is recasting this product as an affordable, easy-to-handle micro tablet. "It's the best 4-inch iPad we've ever made!" says Apple's Phil Schiller.

Apple will release a new "micro tablet" soon called the iPad nano.

Formerly known as the "iPod Touch" Apple is recasting this product as an affordable, easy-to-handle tablet. Philip Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing described the new iPad nano as "...the thinnest, smallest iPad ever. It features a brilliant 4-inch Retina display; a 5 megapixel iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording; Apple's A5 chip; Siri, the intelligent assistant; and iOS 6, the world's most advanced mobile operating system."

The iPad nano weighs in at a mere 88 grams (3.1 ounces). The device's height is 123.4mm (4.86 inches), width 58.6 mm (2.31 inches) and depth just 6.1 mm (0.24 inches). "It fits comfortably even in children's hands" says Schiller

The iPad nano will be available through the Apple Online Store for a suggested price of $299 (US) for the 32GB model and $399 for the 64GB model.

"It's also an excellent music player" said Schiller, who added "don't believe everything you read.".
