Finally Apple is giving up their principle of a 10inch display iPad and more rumors are now pointing to a 7.5 inch smaller and thinner device. From the photo above, you can see that an iPad Mini is supposed to be a bit taller than an iPhone 4S. Their Home button are roughly of the same size. Since the hoted debate about the screen size of a Mini iPad came out, there are lots of photos suggesting the peripherals and accessories of iPad Mini in China and in production. From the photo below you can find a case made for a smaller size iPad circulated on Alibaba.

The case are now becoming more realistic because the production period is more and more close. Now in some of the photos there are also hints that the iPad mini is featuring a camera at the back, unlike some older posts or rumors that the iPad Mini is not having a rear camera for taking pictures. Whether the iPad Mini is having a front facing camera is still unknown but from the information leaked and the technology of building iPhone 4, having a front facing camera should not be a big technical concern up to now.

As far as the power cable is concerned. The rumored smaller docking also make sense for iPad Mini. At that time with new iPhone 5 arriving in September. The iPad Mini will also support this smaller docking and charging cable.


According to Asian source, the name of Apple’s new product, which are expected to have 7″85′ and called as iPad mini, will be named as “iPad mini” officially. This source expects that “iPad” logo will be printed on back of case same as “iPod” is printed on iPod nano and iPod touch, and it means one new product will be added on iPad’s product brand genre.

Next iPod nano may equip Wi-Fi antenna on side of that case, and support iTunes Music Cloud in order Apple to provide a iconic product to promote the largest Music Store in the world.

Regarding the announcement, it is quite unlikely that Apple is going to release information about two major products in the same event. As for as the urges of iPhone 5 is concerned, it is more likely that Apple to hold the announcement a month later than the iPhone 5 event. So fans of Apple, wait for October to see if the smaller iPad is coming!
