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 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.".
