Wall Street & Tech wrote recently about the effect that the release that the iPad Mini may have on Wall Street. The new Apple product has a smaller screen and a better camera and video recording– all of which may be beneficial to those in the financial industry. Reporter Melanie Rodier wrote that despite a lack of software upgrades from the iPad to the iPad mini, there is a question of whether or not the newer models will have an impact.
The largest differences between the two models are size of the tablet and the smaller connector plugs. Rodier wrote, “The iPad Mini, like the iPhone 5 probably doesn’t have a sufficient number of new features to push most owners of older iPad models or iPhones to upgrade. While the iPad Mini will be even easier to carry due to its smaller size, one of the major selling points of the iPad for Wall Street professionals has been the tablet’s large ‘real estate.’ Many simply don’t want a smaller screen.”
