Apple iPad mini 2 aluminum shell leaks in high-res photoshoot, forgets it has nothing new to show
The iPad mini 2, the second generation 7.9-inch Apple tablet, is expected to get officially unveiled soon, and now the rear aluminum shell of the device has leaked out once again in a high-res photoshoot revealing the tiniest of detail. There is not much new in the iPad mini 2, or whatever Apple calls its second generation iPad mini.

The rear housing looks virtually the same and we’re looking at an iPad mini with cellular connectivity here as you have the top of the rear shell of the device covered with a strip plastic, a feature designed to allow better signal throughput.

Speaking of unchanged design, we are not seeing anything new. The separate volume buttons, the rear camera location, the stereo speakers on the bottom and the new Lightning port are all where they were in the original iPad mini.

The leak looks credible and we don’t expect Apple to change the design of the new iPad mini this year. There should be other important changes, though. With Google upping the ante with the affordable Nexus 7 offering a stunning high-res display, Apple is now basically forced to put a ‘Retina’ display in the iPad mini as it just won’t look competitive, so that’s one huge improvement we expect to see. The usual hardware upgrade should also be there. What else do you expect of the 2013 iPad mini?

the fact that all iProducts parts are always shown. makes apple boring of a news. i was expecting something new to this article but no. another parts,.

The original nexus 7 crashes more than it works. Time will tell if the new one is any better.

Keep the apple articles coming!

I almost forgot that Phonearena makes you guys read the iPhone/Ipad articles. Oh, wait...They don't. Quit your pathetic whining and shut up. You guys are sickening.

Complaining about people putting their own thoughts and opinions in a forum is just as "pathetic" and "sickening"

No, these are the same people that complain about trolls on other articles. I have no problem with people expressing themselves about different products when they actually have something relevant to say. However, 9.9 times out of ten its just the same regurgitated jokes just to get a couple thumbs up. Now, to come and insult phone are for them putting up a leaked pic is just silly and juvenile. If you support that, that up to you.

It's funny cause in 10 years Apple will be the next blackberry so it doesn't even really matter about their s***** products

Jobs is rolling over in the grave, trying to slap Tim cook from the beyond!
Apple will be hard pressed to come out with a product that can compete with 500 companies making cheap good products. It has already started. What we android guys and gals need to be doing is not giving a shut. Cause the apples want us to give shut. So next time we see.an apple article pass it over and check out the Google stuff. It soul will be cleansed

Yeah, the only problem with Android, is Android... The only quality alternative to Apple products are WP, Nokia, and Microsoft products.. Google is to much of everything bad..

New Nexus 7 tablet is definitely looking like an awesome value.

Man,, Apple products look so last decade.... It time for the world to be refreshed with some good looking Nokia phones, and tablets..
