Apple's teeny tiny tablet could have been given a price tag already, as thehas reportedly popped up in a retailer's inventory system.
German-language site mobilegeeks.de spied the image below on a blog, and reports that it shows inventory used by retailers Media Markt and Saturn. A bunch of different iPad mini variants are listed, with the cheapest being an 8GB Wi-Fi only model.
That's given a price of €249, which equates to about £200 when you run it through a currency converter. That may not be the actual price of the much-anticipated gadget, if and when it actually goes on sale however -- tech companies, including Apple, rarely stick to straight currency conversions.
The potential low price could make any smaller iPad a worthy competitor for wallet-friendly tech like the £160 or . I'd certainly like to see Apple trying its hand at a cheaper tablet.
This leak directly contradicts a recent rumour, which suggested the iPad mini
schwarz or weiss black or white.
So when will see Apple's mythical machine? The iPad mini is tipped to. I've seen some , but as usual Apple itself is keeping quiet on all fronts. As such you'd be wise to take any iPad mini news with a pinch or two of salt for now.
Does a tiny tablet tickle your fancy? Or is seven inches simply too little for a decent computing device? Tell me in the comments or on our Facebook wall.
