iPad mini: Weights and measures abound

Posted on by Mike Evans

Today several writers have tried to estimate the weight of the new iPad Mini. Yes, we are no longer simply wondering wondering about the very existence of the Mini. We have moved on to the calculating its actual weight. This is all beyond my modest maths, but there is some interesting stuff here. John Gruber of Daring Fireball started the ball rolling On August 14.

Today, MG Siegler and Michael Burford have put their oars in.

I like Siegler's review of the weights of similar devices. It's interesting to see how our various phones, tablets and book readers compare. Here's the list for your reference book.
