“iPad mini is every inch an iPad. With its gorgeous 7.9-inch display, iPad mini features the same number of pixels as the original iPad and iPad 2, so you can run more than 275,000 apps designed specifically for iPad.” this is what Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing, had to say on the launch of the iPad mini last week. “iPad mini is as thin as a pencil and as light as a pad of paper, yet packs a fast A5 chip, FaceTime HD and 5 megapixel iSight cameras and ultrafast wireless?all while delivering up to 10 hours of battery life.”

Well it’s taken under ten days for a teardown to appear. If you want to see the latest and brightest new piece of Apple kit in pieces, check out the tech specialists at iFixIt.
