Another iPad Mini Physical Mockup on Video

Mac Otakara posts some photos and a video with hands on a mockup of the rumored iPad Mini. The video isn't particularly revealing, and we've seen video of these mockups before, but provides another frame of reference for the size of such a device. The photo below shows the relative size next to a 15" MacBook Pro.

Apparently, the models are relatively easy to obtain for approximately 13 USD, according to a previous video report.


The iPad Mini mockup shown on the video reveals a new Lightning port on the bottom of the device, while the headphone jack remains on the top of the device.

The 7.85" iPad Mini has been widely rumored to be approaching launch with reports having suggested that Apple may introduce such a device in October. That rumor came from AllThingsD, which is a traditionally reliable source of Apple event rumors. However, there's been a surprising absence of new rumors about the device as we are heading into October.

If you were going to desert, you would have done it when Apple dropped the word computer from its name.

The writing was on the wall.

I already have, with the huge amount of hardware failures on my 2011 27in iMac, unless the next iMac, or Mac pro really have something friggen awesome, I am done with Apple, which is a shame, I've bought tons of Macs over the years and loved tons of them, but the last two have been terrible. My PC's have never given me this kinda trouble.

But, Apple has surprised me before ( Like with the G5, I was so tempted when they came out, fresh outta college, paychecks piling up like no tommarow, then the dual 1.8 came out, bought it in an instant, Love that machine to this day, and my Dual 2.7 G5 as well ). So I can hope.

Now apple is obsessed with making iToy crap. Sure it makes them more money, and more power to em.

But its sad that the Mac is dead. And has been dead for some time.

Mac = HEY I GOT AN IDEA. LETS TAKE OSX, TURN IT INTO HALF iOS/OSX AND MAKE IT UNSTABLE. Its totally insane, Windows XP/7/8/OSX/10.3/10.4/10.5/10.6 have not given me 1/2 the trouble OSX 10.7 and 10.8 ( BIG improvement, but still needs work imo ) have.

I miss mah Good Macs. I don't care about an nice looking phone with an oudated OS and a broken Map App, and I don't care about ****** Apple TV, nor do I care about the garbage fake uselss iPad.

Lets here some news about MACS for once. Ya know, real tools for real users? Ya know? The Mac? The product that Put apple on the map?

For the love of god, it's not going to happen. The whole idea seemed ridiculous in the first place.

What resolution would it get, and wasn't the resolution fragmentation something apple wanted to prevent?

The only resolution that would make sense is 1024x768, which is the same as the iPad 2

Next year.

Yeppers! Next year! After most of Apples Prosumer and Pro customers have made the jump to the PC.

Cmon Apple, your one of the most wealthy companies in the world.

Dell can update a dozen models every few months.

Are you saying you cant update 2 models in over a year?
