The iPad mini event that happened early this morning is something special.
It is something special because for the first time — as far as we can recall —
Apple decided to broadcast its event live over the internet for the world to watch first hand. Beyond that, the event was special because it marks Apple’s entry into a new market — the sub-10inch tablet market that previously was exclusively dominated by Android devices.
Prior to this, opinions were mixed as to whether Apple could make an impact in a market which its founder so passionately refused to enter, but now that the iPad mini has been announced, we can see why Apple had taken its time and why the iPad mini could very well put Apple way beyond reach of its competitors in the tablet market.
Apple has made the full iPad mini keynote available for you to view so you can see why the iPad mini, like the iPad, is set to dominate in the tablet wars. You can watch the official keynote here or head after the break for the YouTube version.
