Smaller iPad Dock Connector On Leaked iPad Mini Case
Latest leaked case model for what is thought to be an iPad Mini is showing smaller dock connector, giving a stronger hint that Apple’s next tablet is soon to be born.
Rumors of Apple’s smaller version of iPad are currently filling in the internet and gadget magazines. The company is expected to release the new baby before this year ends, but until now no one has a concrete idea on how the device will look like, or how it will be built.
The commotion is heightened with the leaked photos from GottaBeMobile, of what is thought to be a case model for the anticipated iPad mini. The photos show a smaller dock connector that for some is similar to that of the iPod touch. This can be link to the analysis that the new Apple tablet will be as thin as the iPod touch.
The same website has released the rumors of the iPhone 5. It refers to the new case as:
Exclusive photos of an iPad Mini engineering sample provide a first look at the iPad Mini design and hints at possible iPad Mini features. The new iPad will be the thinnest Apple tablet yet, as one of the photos shows. Photos of the iPad Mini engineering sample come from a trust source inside the Apple supply chain.
It’s not really impossible that the discovery is related to the release of the new iTablet. The Cupertino Company should release a new device to compete with ambitious competitors that will release their machines in the market. The smaller version of an Apple tablet is a very lucrative option for the company since it can compete with those low end and cheaper tablets like Amazon’s Kindle Fire. Of course it bears Apple’s logo so it’s something that users will easily fall in love with.
Though some websites are known for their hit and miss rumors about upcoming Apple gadgets, let’s exclude Macotakara from them. The website has released a lot accurate reports about the company and its gadgets, and it has recently released a report that the manufacturing of the smaller iTablets will begin in September. The iDevice is also perceived to be 7.85-inch thin compared to the Kindle Fire’s 11.43mm. That is exactly as thick as the iPod touch. The icing on the cake is that it will include 3G capability and 1024-by-768 screen resolution for flawless viewing.
On the other hand, the smaller dock on the new case can also be for the next model of iPhone or the iPhone 5. That is also what others believe. Until this moment all information about the upcoming Apple tablet are still considered rumors until the company will confirm the news, or until we can see the iDevice with our naked eyes.
One thing is certain; the new iOS tablet will be released before the year ends. Majority of tech analysts are on the same speculation that it will be due in October in time for the Christmas season.
