Production of iPad Mini Started in Brazil Today
Yesterday I wrote you that Apple was preparing for the announcement of iPad mini. Sources within the company believe that the iPad Mini release date on October 17 is not a fake, and compact tablet is going to be on sale in early November.
As was reported on Tuesday by the Japanese blog Macotakara, the production of iPad mini is already running at Foxconn in Brazil. Most likely, the gadget will be available also in China, but there is no information about it.
According to Macotakara, the thickness of iPad mini with a screen size of 7.85 inches will be much smaller than in Amazon Kindle Fire (11.43 mm) and will be 7.69 mm. Approximately the same thickness boasts a media player with touch screen iPod touch, the same is with Google Nexus 7 – 10.45 mm.
iPad mini resolution will be 1024 x 768 pixels, there will be 3G module to connect to the Internet via cellular networks. The gadget will go on sale at prices ranging from $ 249 to $ 299 after production. This info was confirmed by the source.
Macotakara notes that there is no hole for the microphone on the top of iPad Mini rear panel, which has been repeatedly mentioned before. However it is unknown why Apple produce iPad Mini without it.
The source believes that the current production of iPad mini has become a necessity, as Apple needs to protect its position in the low-end segment of the Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire. It is expected that before the end of the year will be shipped about 10 million of these devices.
First I wrote you that iPad Mini display production started and now we heard that production of the iPad Mini moving on in Brazil and soon we would have the best mini tablet in the world. I have no doubt that it will be better that mini tablets from Google and Amazon.
