Holiday Gift Guide 2012: 15 Tech Ideas For Women


iPad mini

Apple's new iPad mini provides all the same features that most women love about the iPad just in a smaller and more easily portable package.

Perfect for businesswomen, frequent travelers or moms on the go, the iPad mini measures 7.87 inches (full-sized iPads, by comparison, measure 9.5 inches) and is just 0.68 pounds. Its smaller frame lets the iPad mini easily slide into purses, totes or diaper bags, and users can hold the tablet with just one hand.

Although the display is a bit of a downgrade compared to bigger iPads, the other specs, such as battery life and camera are alike. The iPad mini ranges from $329 to $659, depending on the model.
