According to the site, those documents, dated from last December 8th, also show that Apple also plans on launching a 7 inch mini version of its tablet sometime in the third quarter of this year.Recently, DigiTimes reported a rumor that an Apple iPad mini with a 7.85 inch display has been delivered for testing and would rollout later this year.
