Apple iPad mini 2 16GB Tablet with 7.9” Retina Display, WiFi, and 4G LTE (GSM Unlocked)
The iPad mini 2 proves that a featherweight tablet can perform as well as its full-size brethren. Its 7.9” Retina display improves upon the resolution of the original mini with four times the pixels, and the powerful 64-bit processor smoothly runs apps, games, and movies in high definition.
The Retina display lends vivid clarity to movies, photos, and games with more than 3 million pixels, making it capable of finer detail than many HDTVs. The lack of visible pixels creates a smooth picture with realistic detail, which may unsettle nearby Atari characters. A fingerprint-resistant coating helps keep the visuals free of smudges.
Flow between streaming movies, shopping online, and ordering takeout: the A7 processor works seamlessly with Apple’s iOS to refocus resources as you move from app to app. Because its 64-bit architecture is particularly good at handling complex graphics, games and videos load quickly and move smoothly.
Browse 1,000,000+ Apps
Apple’s ever-expanding marketplace includes apps for gaming, staying productive, streaming media, and other tasks. This lets you turn the iPad mini 2 into a tool for everything from tracking your budget to refining your sudoku skills.
Long Battery Life
The iPad mini 2 can last for up to 10 hours on a single charge. Play games on long car rides, give presentations during meetings, or read magazines in bed, all without worrying about battery levels.
Wireless and Cellular Connectivity
Capable of picking up both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi bands, the mini 2’s wireless connection is speedy and versatile. This model is also unlocked for use with data plans on virtually any GSM network, enabling you to connect to the web wherever there’s cell service. If you choose not to activate a data plan, you can still use the iPad with the WiFi connection alone.

From the start, Steve Jobs was enthralled with not only the novelty of technology but also its design. When speaking about the Apple computer, he said it was “going to be insanely beautiful.” Over the years, Apple’s products have worked to fuse innovative technology with almost artful design. The iMac stunned the world with its colorful plastic shells, which the New York Times said “more closely resemble a pack of Life Savers than a new computer line.” The glossy white iPod—no bigger than a deck of playing cards—could hold an entire library of music. Time Magazine named the iPhone the Invention of the Year for its stunning design and, uniquely, because of the promise it held for even better products in the future. With each new item they launch, Apple works to shape the way future societies communicate, learn, and dance when they’re alone.
