Of course, this could simply be a mockup of the 7.85 inch tablet that is rumored to be less than a week away from being officially announced withj speculation falling on October 17th. After all, plenty of those mockups of the Apple iPhone 5 were photographed and not one was the real thing. However, and this is important, most of the mockups turned out to be pretty darn close to the real thing and we're thinking that the same could be happening again with the Apple iPad mini.
Apple could be pricing the mini version of its tablet at a price to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire HD and the 8GB variant of the Google Nexus 7, both priced at $199. Screen protectors are on sale for the unannounced device at Zagg.com. And in case you're interested, the pictures come from the Twitter account of Sonny Dickson
