After Amazon's attempt to discredit the iPad mini on its home page, Apple has hit back, pointing out that Amazon's claims are incorrect and the iPad mini does have stereo speakers.

The Amazon page, which has now been removed, claimed that the Kindle Fire HD has 30% more pixels than the iPad mini, 216ppi (pixels per inch) versus 163ppi, dual stereo speakers, and ultra-fast MIMO Wi-Fi.

Apple's Phil Schiller was quick to confirm the inaccuracy, saying in an email to 9to5Mac: "It is stereo."

Amazon has since pulled the anti-iPad mini ad.
