Educated guess mockups portray the iPad Mini as an Apple tablet at heart, stuffed into an iPod touch-thin body

0. phoneArena posted on 15 Aug 2012, 06:28

A design that's lighter and more compact than the 7-inchers, coupled with a screen size that is closer to the 8" mark, and with the many thousands of tablet apps for iOS can certainly make the eventual iPad Mini stand out in a big way, especially if the rumored $200-$300 price range, depending on the sources pans out...

Haha, more like iPod touch in an iPad body, not the other way around...That would cost too much to be priced competitively.

Yup. They should call it the iPod Touch XL.

In my opinion, this year will be Apple largest launch of iOS Device compare to years before :D

Everyone's were right! Competition really make something improve and improve.

Educated guess? Really?

Take an iPad, stick it on a copier, set for 70% and press copy. Done.

The Ipad Nano (Mini) will be priced at $299. No need to sacrifice margin to compete against the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7. Thus Amazon is not making any money on the tablet as well Google. Apple doesn't believe that is a good business model to reduce the cost of your product to sacrifice margin and revenue. Apple isn't desperate for market share. Companies, like Samsung, Amazon, and HTC will make this move to preserve market share.

Interesting how there has been relatively few leaks about the specs for the device. Chipset? Screen resolution? The iWorld waits with baited breath.

There won't be any real leaks (lots of fake leaks) about the hardware. In fact, the whole idea about the ipad mini are based solely on rumors and guesses.

I don't like et. The outer band on the side is far too thin.

Price is the main thing though, not the design etc. What will it cost, that's going to be the deciding factor more than anything.
