GimmeTech website analyzed rumors surrounding the presentation of a new iPad mini tablet, which will compete with similar 7-inch devices such as the Amazon Kindle and Google Nexus 7 running Android operating system.
The first mention of the compact version of the iPad mini dated back in August 2010. Then the iLounge published a sensational information about the upcoming Apple tablet model possibly to be called “iPad mini”. However, the main wave of rumors, analysts have recorded in the last 9-10 months, it has reached its peak on October 16 – the day when Apple announced a special press event, scheduled for October 23. I must say that the atmosphere of the traditional Apple secrecy is increasingly fails, it proved a great story leaks ahead of release of iPhone 5, when anonymous sources close to the production process smartphone actually “leaked” to journalists all the details. So the rumors about iPad mini can trust. Diagonal screen iPad mini will be 7.85-inch, which means it does not exactly copy the competition.
Engaged in the production of LG Display and AU Optronics. Screen resolution is lower than that of the third-generation iPad, equipped with Retina display technology. Savings needed to reduce the price of the device, which is to fight for market share with competitors like Google and Amazon. The tablet will be “virtually thin” as the fifth-generation iPod touch (6.1 mm) – 7.2 mm. This will be a record high for the market units. Probably, there will be two mini camera and a new port Lightning, which debuted for the first time on the iPhone 5. What remains unclear are two main issues: the internal specifications of the device and its price.

Price, analysts say, will be somewhere in the middle of the range between the value of Nexus 7 ($199) and iPad 2 ($399). How accurate are the rumors of “mysterious” iPad mini”, we will on October 23 when it will be presented.
