Apple and its suppliers face a busy season if rumors of its iPad Mini are true.
The company's manufacturing partners will reportedly kick out 4 million units of the small tablet each month starting in September, according to the folks at Digitimes.
Citing the usual "supply chain sources," DigiTimes said that Apple is aiming at those numbers in order to satisfy the expected demand from holiday shoppers. The supply chain has already been building the tiny tablet since June at a rate of around several hundred thousand per month, the sources added.
The iPad Mini would reportedly offer a screen size of 7.85 inches with a display thinner than those of rival tablets and a resolution matching that of the iPad 2.
DigiTimes pointed to October for the unveiling of the new iPad, however, other reports have citedfor both the tablet and the next-generation iPhone.
The cost of the rumored iPad Mini is a mystery. DigiTimes' sources indirectly suggested that Apple could price it at $299, a figure that would certainly give the Kindle Fire and Google Nexus a run for their money.
