Apple iPad Mini release and $200 price tag rumoured

Tipped to land as a direct rival to the Amazon Kindle Fire, new reports have suggested the rumoured Apple iPad Mini will launch in October at $200

 

With a number of rumours doing the rounds on the potential introduction of a 7.85-inch Apple iPad Mini, new reports have suggested the sub-sized Apple tablet will land this October with a minimalist price tag.

Although far form confirmed, reports of an iPad Mini release have hit fever pitch in recent weeks with latest mutterings from the ever revolving Apple rumour mill suggesting this October’s expected iPhone 5 release could be partnered with the company’s first 7-inch tablet offering.

“Apple will be going forward with the 7-inch iPad, currently targeting an October 2012 release alongside the new iPhone, and — here’s the killer — at a $200 to $250 price point,” Apple blog iMore has reported.

The report added: “Our source has indicated, however, that the 7-inch iPad will be identical to the current 9.7-inch iPad, just scaled down. That seems to include a 2048×1536 resolution display, just like the new iPad. If accurate, that would put the pixel density at around 326 ppi, the same as the iPhone 4S (and higher than the 264 ppi new iPad) retina display.”

With the current new iPad 3 maintaining the highly competitive £399 ($499 in the US) price tag as its predecessors, the touted $200 (£124) price tag attributed to the rumoured iPad Mini would see the device land as a direct competitor to the cheap as chips Amazon Kindle Fire.

Would you like to see Apple join the 7-inch tablet fray and launch an Apple iPad Mini or are you happy with their dominant 9.7-inch models? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
