iPad mini could crash down the competition as rumors surface again. Launch Oct, price $200-$250.-
iMore new report claims. Apple is indeed preparing a smaller version of its wildly popular iPad tablet and it will launch this coming October for between $200 and $250.
Numerous earlier reports have suggested that an iPad with a 7.85-inch display will launch in the third or fourth quarter this year.
The scaled down tablet will look exactly like the current 9.7-inch iPad but smaller. It will also feature a display resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels, identical to the panel on Apple’s new iPad.
If iMore’s report is accurate, the move will likely be a crushing blow to vendors like Samsung and HTC, which continue to struggle in the tablet market. A $200 or $250 “iPad mini,” as it has been called, would also likely pose a huge problem for both Amazon and Barnes & Noble, each of which offers a low-cost tablet in addition to their eReader products.
