Apple likely to adopt slim bezels for its 7.85" iPad mini, to target the sub-$300 tablet market
Digitimes keeps churning wild tablet rumors today, and the next one on the list is with more info about the alleged smaller iPad that is in the testing. The supply chain sources reiterated that Apple's iPad mini will feature a 7.85" display made by LG and AU Optronics, but it won't be of the high-res Retina variety.

Apple is planning to use a significantly shrunk bezel, for that matter, in order to keep things compact, yet provide ample screen real estate. The iPad mini, or whatever it gets called eventually, if all of this holds water, is expected to range in price from $249-$299, depending on the configuration.

Such a munchkin iPad could definitely give affordable Android tablets a run for their money, and expand the tablet iOS applications universe significantly, due to exponential increase in the target market base. All good news for iPad owners.
