Apple unveils iPad Mini

Editor's note: Apple on Tuesday unveiled the "iPad Mini" a smaller version of its iPad at a press conference in San Jose, California. Follow our live tweets from the @CNNtech team, and read the full story here. Here's information from the press conference as it came in:

[Updated at 1:53 p.m. ET] From our CNN tech reporters Doug Gross and Heather Kelly: The device is 7.2mm thick, or the thickness of a pencil. Its screen dimensions are the same as the larger iPad, so all apps will work the same on the new, smaller tablet.

"It's not just a shrunken-down iPad," Apple marketing chief Phil Schiller told the audience at a media event here.

Prices range from $329 to $659, depending on storage capacity. Customers can begin pre-ordering the device Friday.

    Unleash the sheep! Although, I am curious as to how many sheepel have fled the flock once their beloved shepherd bought the big farm.

    If they stuck around, it must be because of a purple haze.

    I'm no expert, but I'm guessing that most days you will use the mini pad, and other days you will need the regular maxi pad.
