Leaked 7" iPad Parts Detail Mini-Sized Apple Tablet

Before every major Apple release, it seems that a case, or a shell, gets leaked. They aren't always accurate, but in the case of the presumed 7" iPad, it's beginning to look as if the leaks may be onto something. Recent evidence in the Samsung / Apple patent lawsuit trial proved that Apple was considering, and perhaps even testing, a 7" iPad behind closed doors. So, the idea of a miniature iPad to rival the form factor currently dominated by the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 isn't far-fetched at all. Now, external shell casings have emerged from the Chinese social media site Sina Weibo, and they look mighty convincing. You may notice a lack of a camera hole, but it's stated that these parts were from an early batch, and the final design may have changed slightly. Apple's rumored to be holding a press event on September 12th where the 7" iPad will be revealed -- do you think this thing will be the product that's on tap?

7" Tablets never did hold much attraction to me. Too large to compete with a phone and too small to compete well with a full sized tablet.

I totally agree Inside I have an Amazon fire but I am thinking the Samsung Galaxy note is one of the most perfect thing right now. It comes with the pin had HD in and out graphically, can be used as a phone, is Android so it has tons of stuff available, and on and on!

The largest attraction of the 7" market is the form factor of a tablet for a price half that of a full sized tablet or a non contract phone.

The iPad coming to the middle ground market is likely to grab huge market share, if they maintain their fantastic devotion to product usability and simplicity. Where the Kindle Fire is based on a shortened version of android, and the Samsung note also being android base, many people will find the smaller lower priced dependable apple tablet an incredible upgrade.

Apple doesn't generally touch its toe in the water, look for a big jump and a large capital and time commitment to this new smaller tablet market from The Apple organization.

True AKnudson but where either a Nook or a Kindle FIRE are relatively limited by a shortened version of Android both (and mine personally) are inexpensive and can easily be rooted and given full ICS and soon Jellybean with relative ease. One more thing specifically on this is there are auto builds now where you can do it with elementary to no knowledge of even the practice of loading a rom and radio etc etc. As far as it goes loading ICS on my Kindle Fire took 7 minutes completely.

Apple's product will be more expensive than it's competitors. You really pay for that "devotion to product usability and simplicity" that they offer.

They usually omit some features that they do not feel that we need, even if we want them. (I'd love to plug a flash drive into my iPad)

Once you get past it's probable good looks and 'cool' factor, prepare to be underwhelmed.

I completely agree with realneil, the only apple product that I truly loved and still do to this day is my first gen ipod touch. I gave it to my sister but I regret that decision every time i pick it up.

I have an old iPod 160GB and it's still plugging along nicely. I use it when I work out.

I also have an iPad 2nd. Gen and I really like it too. It's portable and there are no surprises when you use it.

I just don't like the fact that features that we want on these things are not implemented into them. (flash card support for one and Flash support on the web)
