There is a buzz going around that Apple is in the process of launching iPad Mini coming october, a 7-inch tablet along with the launch of iPhone 5. According to the rumours, this new launch will be priced between $200 to $250 with a 8GB storage carrying the same resolution as iPad, almost touching the price of Apple’s iPod Touch. But there is no need to worry as iPod touch will remain in the product line.
With the iPad mini launch, Amazon is expected to face direct competition for its Kindle Fire. The rumor also indicates that Apple is doing this in order to remain in the competition under the “mini” category and give stiff competition to Samsung, Rim and Amazon who are already rivals in the 7-inch Tablet market.
While Steve Jobs never liked the idea of making iPad’s smaller, Apple is showing the signs of entering into the post steve era and we are hoping to see something unconventional which would beat the ever changing tablet market.
