Just a few short weeks after the successful release of the iPhone 5, Apple unveiled its latest offering in the growing tablet computer market: the iPad Mini.

As you might guess, it’s a bit smaller than the standard iPad (which also got an upgrade), but this product is meant to compete with items like Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD.¬†Apple’s version of the bigger-than-a-smartphone/smaller-than-a-typical-tablet gadget is more expensive but, like most of Apple’s products, it’s really pretty and quite a powerful little device.

Here’s a quick look at what you need to know:

  • Size: At 7.9 inches (diagonal), it’s almost 2 inches smaller than an iPad, but bigger than the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire; it weighs just 0.68 pounds and is 7.2 millimeters thin
  • Price: The Wi-Fi-enabled 16 GB starter goes for $329 (the Nexus 7 starts at $200, the Kindle Fire at $160); 32 GB goes for $429, 64 GB for $529
  • Availability: Pre-orders start on October 26 and will begin arriving November 2
