I guess us iPad mini hopefuls should throw down $13 for one of these mockups, given that the actual product probably doesn't exist.

It will be a flopped

It will be a flopped for sure. After all the issues iPhone 5 have. I've all the iPads and iPhones. I definitely won't get iPad Mini if Apple decides to release it.

Really..? It's just a smaller iPad. They act like we are going to see something different. It's going to be the same **** but on a smaller screen. Hell we already saw that with the iPhone.

Give it up already. I'm so ready for October to come and go without any Apple event and see how people like Gruber and Dalrymple try to backpedal on their predictions.

The whole idea of Apple holding a massive event a month after the iPhone/iPod event was just ludicrous to begin with.

If there is a smaller iPad, and that's a BIG IF, Apple will just unveil it alongside the next iPad event.

From what I've been reading, the Nexus 7 is doing very welll sales wise, so the 7in form factor is what at least some people want.

Throw on Apple marketing with iSheep, and you have billions in profit.

I haven't seen any sales numbers... only analyst estimates and/or predictions.

Maybe you can point me in the right direction.

Hearing "it's sold out everywhere" doesn't really say anything about how well it's doing sales wise.

If they really do sell 8 million units by the end of the year, thats amazing, considering its a hard to find product unless you look online ( looks like most major retailers won't even carry it ).

Factor in Apples iSheep followers, and their INCREDIBLE skill for marketing, I bet they could shift 30 million iPad minis no problem.

The question is, can Apple make a 7 inch tablet as good as the Nexus 7? I have my doubts.

I tend to agree with you on the icons. I won't say Windows' tiles are heaven (haven't seen them in action) but it sure seems a more efficient way to present information to the user. With icons you lose a lot of screen estate and it takes you longer to access information.

I'm not sure about the stickers, but the silver bezel is usually antiglare.

Are you guys crazy - Apple is going to sell a gazillion of these "Mini-Pads!" It'll be a perfect size for when the "Maxi-Pad" is just too cumbersome. I can see my mini laying around the home-theater room as an ideally sized remote-control for AppleTV, Netflix, Roku, surround-sound and/or stereo systems. It's also a more convenient size for controlling things like a Parrot AR Drone Helicopter, and could also be an amazing gesture-controlled trackpad interface for Final Cut, iMovie, Logic, etc. And when you finish editing, you just disconnect the trackpad and carry it as a portable screening station to show friends and clients at you kids' soccer game.

I believe that Tim has some significant, tightly integrated and yet to be revealed products in the pipeline - and newly rumored MacPro and iMac updates could bring Apple back into the professional/broadcast editing venue almost overnight. Using a fast, multi-core iMac with Thunderbolt connectors, a G-Tech Thunderbolt RAID-5, an AJA Thunderbolt to HDMI breakout box for connecting an external HDMI video monitor, and a gesture-controlled Mini-Pad for your left hand and mouse in the right, TV stations could have an amazingly fast and powerful editing and graphics workstation (for less than $5000) that'd blow you hair back! Even in a major-market, TV stations could easily get by with 10 or less basic editing workstations, and then maybe 2 MacPro workstations for any "heavy-lift" graphics compositing for program "promotional" spots and show opens.

The Mini-Pad is going to happen - and I strongly suspect it'll be in time for the 2012/13 holiday season.

Silver bezel means it's the anti-glare hi-res MBP 15 option. The stickers are I guess some former PC user's idea of a joke.

There are still apps running at the original iPhone res, then there's the retina iphone res, then there's the iPhone 5 16x9 res, then the iPad 1 & 2 res, and the iPad 3 retina. Fragmentation - yes. I'm not sure apple will want to keep another device at another res.

By the way, the brand new iOS 6 YouTube app from Google is NOT Universal. You have to double it on iPad 2. Weak sauce in Google's part. Jasmine for YouTube is much better.

This is BS.

There will never be an iPad Mini and even if there were, it will not look like this.

The new iPad (And it will be full size) will be as thin as the new iPhone and adopt the new screen size.

This stupid iPad Mini crap is just like the retarded iPhone Mini nonsense from days gone by.

I am not sure how apple will justify the price point after watching the release of new ipod touch 5th Gen. it starts $299. now, new ipad costs $499. so I guess if ipad mini will be $399, who will buy it? for reference, 7 inch tablet starts $199. even you can get 16GB model (amazon kindle fire HD) only by $199. if apple will release it with $399, it will be failed for sure. you can just get new ipad with $100 more. it's much better. I heard the rumors that new ipad mini wouldn't be retina display as well. who will like it? I don't think so. it is just failed. I hope that apple wouldn't make it. they'd better know how the market starts to share. don't make any mistake.

(update) I think that new ipod touch 5th Gen. is new ipad mini. it's perfect to carry all over the place. it newly changed design. why not?

Whether it happens or not.. I am sick and tired of this rumor. Don't care, won't buy, won't even mention it in a conversation. What's with this constant need to throw rumors based on stupid MOCKUPS? Not a little bit informative.
