Rumor has iPad mini hitting in Q3 for $249-$299

updated 09:55 am EDT, Mon April 16, 2012

Claims 6 milllion units to be ready at launch

A so-called iPad mini will ship in the third quarter of the year as a "counter attack" to upcoming Windows tablets, a Chinese website claims. NetEase moreover reports that the smaller iPads will cost between $249 and $299, with 6 million units ready at launch. Two Asian manufacturers -- Hon Hai (Foxconn) and Pegatron -- will allegedly be responsible for production.

While there is little to substantiate the NetEase claims, they are consistent with other reports that Apple is working on a 7.85-inch iPad. If it comes to fruition it may keep the same 1024x768 resolution as the iPad 2, but appear sharper thanks to a smaller size. A $249 pricetag would also make Apple more competitive with 7-inch Android tablets, especially the $199 Amazon Kindle Fire.
