Apple iPad mini can't wait for official announcement, flirts with camera again

Apple iPad mini can't wait for official announcement, flirts with camera again
Tomorrow can’t come soon enough. Why? Tomorrow is the date when Apple is expected to send out invitations for the unveiling of the iPad mini. But until tomorrow comes, a ton of images of the iPad mini have leaked out.

This latest batch comes from Sonny Dickson, a “tech enthusiast, 9to5Mac researcher,” and obviously someone who has the iPad mini mockup we’ve seen way too many times by now. There is a tiny chance this is the actual device, but given that we can only see its back and it’s a 32GB unit like all the previous mockups we saw tells us that this is just another angle at Apple’s upcoming tablet.

What can we learn from these pictures? Well, once again, we see a Lightning connector and the same style Apple used in the iPhone 5 for the speakers on the bottom. We also get a glimpse at the rear camera. The design looks the same good industrial thin affair. Check those new pictures out below and pray for tomorrow to come sooner.

Ur comments make less and less sense everyday. We all already know u hate apple big time, we know this. My question is do u actually read the crap u post before u post it. A lot of android users hate apple, but the things they say r things that actually critique iOS. U on the other hand just spew a lot of nonsense, and insults that no one really cares to hear. IHUGE CRAP? Really non-functional photo frame really? C'mon man I know u can do better, or maybe u can't. I'm trying not to get banned so I can't say what I really want to, but wowwww man just wowwww iHUGE CRAP WOWWWWW

As a fellow droider myself mate, I've read some of your offerings and have to agree with the Jedi and galliotking. Your comments are mostly biased, and childlike mate. Why is it apples user base can't simply enjoy what they like, just like the android nation? I don't bash, or insult apple fans because of their choice of iOS products. That's not android, that's childishness.

First thank you for reading my posts. Appreciate it :)

K you're right buddy I can be biased but its all in good humored spirit...And it sholud be taken as such And it is my personal opinion AND if it helps I develop apps for iOS too :)
...yeah but I got a few warning from the mods so I guess I got to tone it down a bit.

Apple users can enjoy PA and their free choices as much as I enjoy PIES and I really do:) But I dunno what posts of mine you've read there were a few posts I made sincere efforts to explain stuff not against Apple or Sammy or XYZ but to give an insight into how things actually work...you wont believe the number of haters that bashed on me...but hey its free will right :)

nywyz c ya around :)

It's a smaller iPad, that if priced right will dominate the 7 inch sector like the big one dominates still.

Will this come with a finger file or will it be a $30 extra like the lightning adapter?

Ifans are saving like crazy for this slightly smaller version of the current ipad ,when they buy this one they will have them all and be the apple pokemon grand champion. Do the mighty question facing every apple fan is "can you collect them all"?!

The physical design is really appealing and it does look better then the new iPad but like many people said the IOS miss getting boring and stale. Adding new features does not justify the boringness of the look and feel of IOS.

Uh oh...Apple is copying every other company that has already made a 7ish" tablet. I hope they all sue the crap out of them and Apple has to turn over their $200 profit from each unit to those manufacturers! Apple is easily the most hypocritical company on the planet and their OS is dated by about 2.5 years.

Desprate attempt to regain some lost ground where iPAD market share in US fell from 81 to 52.
