Photos of alleged 7-inch iPad shell make Internet rounds

Photos of alleged 7-inch iPad shell make Internet rounds
One of the hottest rumors of the summer this year surrounds the mythical 7-inch iPad mini. Beyond the usual gossipers, larger publications such as Bloomberg and the New York Times have even gotten in on the reporting. 

Now, a user on Sina Weibo, a Chinese social network, has posted some photos of what they claim to be the shell casing of the upcoming 7-inch iPad. Obviously the authenticity of these images is up for serious debate. If they are accurate, however, it is very interesting that the rear casing is clearly sans-camera hole. Conversely, there have been several so-called "leaks" of cases for the upcoming device that do sport a camera hole, so there is definitely a conflict here. 

While this could be an early look at the iPad mini’s shell, it’s not to hard to manufacture an image like this considering Apple tends to stick to a very minimalistic design, so take a look – and a grain of salt.
