Wall Street Journals and other medias have reported that Apple Inc. has started the mass production of a new smaller tablet computer, termed iPad Mini. The 7.85-inch tablet is smaller than the current iPad and is rumored to be be unveiled on October 17.
Although a number of parts leakage and other insiders reports, there is no words on such a product from Apple. Unless Apples invites journalists to a press meet (some expect the invitation to go on October 10) no one can be certain about the new product.
At the time when Apple is facing huge number of competitive tablet products from rivals like Google, Amazon and others a more affordable tablet will certainly help the tech giant.
