Apple Reveals iPad Mini

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Apple is revealing a smaller version of its hit iPad tablet computer, with a screen that's about two-thirds the size of the full-size model.

It weighs 0.68 pounds, half as much as the full-size iPad, and is as thin as a pencil, said Apple Inc. marketing chief Phil Schiller at an event in San Jose, Calif.

The screen resolution is 1024 by 768 pixels, the same as the iPad 2 and a quarter of the resolution of the third-generation iPad.

"It's not just a shrunken down iPad, it's an entirely new design," Schiller said.

Company watchers have for a year been expecting the company to release a smaller iPad to counter cheaper tablets like Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle Fire.
