As September’s around the corner, there are floods of rumors and leaked info for the new iPad mini, although evidence shows Apple fanboys are more interested in the iPhone 5 than the iPad mini. Well, some possible news of the appearance of the iPad mini popped up from 9to5mac that every Apple fiend can hardly ignore.
9to5mac illustrated that iPad Mini will look like a large iPod Touch(not iPad) with thinner bezels on the left and right side. I know what you think. It’s not an iPhone or iPod touch that can be held with one hand. Thinner bezel means less space for resting your hands on the sides on the portrait mode. Of course, it won’t effect the landscape mode.
On the other hand, this may lead a thinner and slimmer iPad. Consider the lack of Retina Display and the fatty battery, it may be super thin. You can easily see it through the leaked mockup pictures showing above.
And John Gruber, who is close to apple, has the same view. He indicates the new device may not be housed in similar proportions—and the change in device size would result in shaving the bezel on the sides of the device.
The iPad mini is predicted to price at either $200 or $299 and may roll out in this Autumn. But all the info above is still under speculation. Let’s wait more info to come. Feel free to tell us what you think about it.
