The iPad Pro Mini Will Be Killer!

I remembered something.

This:

It’s the Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9, which I fondled back in 2011(!).

It seemed handier than the contemporaneous iPad, and the dimensions reflect that:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: 9.09″ x 6.21″ x 0.34″

iPad 2: 9.50″ x 7.31″ x 0.34″

And in this video …

… your own eye can see just how much smaller the 8.9 actually was:

So, what happens if the bezeless iPad that Steven Troughton-Smith believes in comes to pass?

Well, here’s an idea.

This is the size of an iPad 9.7″ screen itself: 7.76″ x 5.82″.

Add a near-nothing bezel (call it a border or a frame, then) and compare it to the Samsung 8.9:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: 9.09″ x 6.21″ x 0.34″

iPad Pro Mini: 7.86″ x 5.92″ x 0.24″

I’ve added 0.10″ for the frame and used the depth from the Air 2 (I think Apple would at least want to match that).

Now let’s add the Mini 4 to compare:

Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9: 9.09″ x 6.21″ x 0.34″

iPad Pro Mini: 7.86″ x 5.92″ x 0.24″

iPad Mini 4: 8.00″ x 5.31 x 0.24″

Yeah. What I’m calling the “iPad Pro Mini” is going to shake up the market.

China will begin another round of cloning over it.

And I will want it.

    Why do you know that such an iPad Mini Pro with, assume, some A10X processor and iOS 10 will be fast enough to handle all your test PDFs? I think that equally important is a bugfree iBooks with a good algorithm handling any PDF fast within the given RAM. Computationally, the task is linear, i.e., fast but stupid programmers might make it exponential and then the fastest CPU cannot help. In particular, if bitmaps shall be rendered by blurring of arbitrary precision (sharper than the original), then each large PDF becomes a never-ending task.
