Another iPad Mini Physical Mockup on Video




Mac Otakara posts some photos and a video with hands on a mockup of the rumored iPad Mini. The video isn't particularly revealing, and we've seen video of these mockups before, but provides another frame of reference for the size of such a device. The photo below shows the relative size next to a 15" MacBook Pro.

Apparently, the models are relatively easy to obtain for approximately 13 USD, according to a previous video report.

The iPad Mini mockup shown on the video reveals a new Lightning port on the bottom of the device, while the headphone jack remains on the top of the device.

The 7.85" iPad Mini has been widely rumored to be approaching launch with reports having suggested that Apple may introduce such a device in October. That rumor came from AllThingsD, which is a traditionally reliable source of Apple event rumors. However, there's been a surprising absence of new rumors about the device as we are heading into October.

For the love of god, it's not going to happen. The whole idea seemed ridiculous in the first place.

What resolution would it get, and wasn't the resolution fragmentation something apple wanted to prevent?

The only resolution that would make sense is 1024x768, which is the same as the iPad 2

I think it's real, but I don't think it gets release this year. I could be wrong, but Apple should have priced this iPod touch more aggressively this year of they knew they were going to make a <$300 to compete against it.

That screen doesn't look 4:3 to me.

Will Apple be able to math rumored $99 price of the next Nexus tablet?

I can't wait till all the "it'll never happen" people are proved wrong. That always makes me happy

This mockup looks a little thick to me. I thought it was supposed to be iPod Touch thickness. I think that would make it a super success.

Cmon Apple, your one of the most wealthy companies in the world.

Dell can update a dozen models every few months.

Are you saying you cant update 2 models in over a year?

If you were going to desert, you would have done it when Apple dropped the word computer from its name.

The writing was on the wall.

I already have, with the huge amount of hardware failures on my 2011 27in iMac, unless the next iMac, or Mac pro really have something friggen awesome, I am done with Apple, which is a shame, I've bought tons of Macs over the years and loved tons of them, but the last two have been terrible. My PC's have never given me this kinda trouble.

But, Apple has surprised me before ( Like with the G5, I was so tempted when they came out, fresh outta college, paychecks piling up like no tommarow, then the dual 1.8 came out, bought it in an instant, Love that machine to this day, and my Dual 2.7 G5 as well ). So I can hope.

Now apple is obsessed with making iToy crap. Sure it makes them more money, and more power to em.

But its sad that the Mac is dead. And has been dead for some time.

Mac = HEY I GOT AN IDEA. LETS TAKE OSX, TURN IT INTO HALF iOS/OSX AND MAKE IT UNSTABLE. Its totally insane, Windows XP/7/8/OSX/10.3/10.4/10.5/10.6 have not given me 1/2 the trouble OSX 10.7 and 10.8 ( BIG improvement, but still needs work imo ) have.

I miss mah Good Macs. I don't care about an nice looking phone with an oudated OS and a broken Map App, and I don't care about ****** Apple TV, nor do I care about the garbage fake uselss iPad.

Lets here some news about MACS for once. Ya know, real tools for real users? Ya know? The Mac? The product that Put apple on the map?

Screen is 4:3, you are just used to the iPad having thick bezels on all 4 sides.

I really wish Apple would just make the iPad Mini $399 and use the same quality Retina screen as in the iPad 3. Going for 1024x768 in a 7.85" display when the Kindle Fire HD is 1280x800 and the Nook Tablet HD is 1440x900 is a really noticeable difference, especially in reading. One also wonders if we aren't going to see the A6 pop up as well.

People also said the iPhone 5 wasn't going to be called the iPhone 5 and we know how that turned out...

I'm really hoping this is a real product in the near future. I love the smaller tablet size but I can't seem to get into Android.

If this is real, I really hate that the mic isn't on the bottom like the iP5.

I still have NO idea where this would fit in Apple's line up. Say they do go for the 1024*768 on a 7.85 in screen, that would leave them with 163 pixels per inch, the same as the iPhone 3GS. Apple has been riding the Retina Display thing pretty hard lately, I just don't know why they'd release a product without one?

I'm all for the form factor, I'm just confused.

The carriers don't want you to be able to use it for phone calls.
