On the Internet, there are new images of the iPad mini, which is expected to be released in October 2012. Photos of the device layout was pubished on the Chinese website BoLoPad.com, stating that the product is based on data received from the contract Apple vendor.
iPad mini enclosure is made of aluminum, making the device quite subtle. In the bottom center edge, there is a new narrower connector for charging and accessories. Near the interface are holes for the speaker.
On the eve of the Taiwanese publication, Economic Daily News reported that local manufacturers began to produce compact Apple tablets. Until today the Cupertino company only used one Taiwanese assembler, Foxconn. Now, as it turns out, the company reached an agreement with Pegatron.
According to sources, Pegatron will produce 50-60% of the 7-inch iPad mini. Foxconn will take the remaining 40%. Together, companies can produce up to 5 million units every month.
However, most sources agree that the iPad mini tablet will “look like a big iPod touch”. 7.85-inch device will have a narrow frame around the display, as well as separate volume controls, instead of the traditional iPad. The novelty will be available in October this year.
