Early last week, Bloomberg claims that the potential “iPad Mini” might hit the market late this year with specific October release. In relation, The Wall Street Journal added that Apple’s component suppliers are raging for production of the iPad mini to start in September. If you’ll remember, Steve Jobs don’t have plans for a 7-inch iPad, however, the time for a smaller iPad might be on-track as competitors such as Amazon with its Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7 have been getting the right attention with its less expensive listing of $199 price tag. The iPad mini will be keeping the iPad on-top of the tablet market as the device-trend moves to much smaller 7-inch game.
Accordingly, Bloomberg known sources told that the iPad mini will “have the same number of pixels as those in the iPad before it was upgraded to the so-called Retina Display earlier this year”, giving the device a resolution of 1024×768 pixels. At these screen resolution, the developers will limit fragmentation for apps in different iDevices such the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
The news are coming out from Bloomberg and WSJ which seemed on a clear track for Apple-related rumors, let’s just wait for further developments as for sure there will be lots of leaks coming our way.
