Are you ready for the mini?

At an event in San Jose this October, Apple unveiled the long-speculated iPad mini. Much like the name suggests, the device is a shrunken-down version of Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad.

The smaller tablet features a 7.9-inch display and weighs 0.68 pounds (compared to the classic iPad’s 1.44 pounds). Apple’s latest gadget also includes a dual-core A5 chip and can be purchased with 16GB, 32GB or 64GBs of storage space. The price of the tablet starts at $329. (For more specs, check out the company's website.)

According to Mashable, the iPad mini sold out three days after being available for pre-order. But will this device live up to all the hype –- particularly if other tablets like the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Fire are priced at $199 and feature higher screen resolution? To find out, take a look at the gallery (below), featuring iPad mini reviews from USA Today, New York Times, CNET, Wall Street Journal, TIME, TechCrunch, The Verge, Engadget and The Loop.
