Priced at $199, iPad Mini's small screen would let Apple keep the costs in check. Besides analysts have said that smaller iPad would give competitors a tough time. One analyst calls it 'nightmare' for competitors like Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire.
Though rumours have been doing the rounds for quite sometime and Apple has never bothered to clear the air. And this time as well, it has maintained complete silence.
Couple of months back, Apple Pundit John Gruber has said that Apple had a working prototype of a 7.85 inch iPad in its labs. He had said that the prototype sports the same resolution as the original iPad and iPad 2.
Apple had reportedly even ordered Samsung screens, measuring 7.86 inches which was seen by many as the official confirmation of Apple's plans to develop smaller iPad.
Though it has been preveiously said that Apple's co-founder Steve Jobs was skeptical of smaller iPad but now it seems, Apple will go to any extent to maintain dominance in the market.
