With only a few days left before Christmas, Apple has just released a new Christmas-themed, complete-with-falling-snow ad for the iPad mini.

Titled “I’ll Be Home,” and embedded for your viewing pleasure below, the ad features a girl serenading her grandfather with the hit Bing Crosby song “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” … via FaceTime.

The former is shown on a full-size iPad, while the latter is shown on an iPad mini. This being an ad for the iPad mini, it effectively demonstrates that the smaller tablet is no less capable in digitally bridging the geographical divide than the bigger tablet is.

Indeed, the iPad mini is no less capable in doing most, if not all, of the things that the “iPad biggie” can do. As previously illustrated by Apple in two of its previous ads, they are, in essence, two of a kind.

As it happens, the iPad mini also makes for a Christmas gift that, by all accounts, is no less wonderful than the full-size iPad.
