Rumors pop up in China saying that Apple will launch an iPad mini in Q3 of 2012. Similar rumors already appeared earlier this year.
The iPad mini might be real. We already reported about an 8 or 7.85-inch iPad in February and in March. Today Kotaku features a report from Chinese site NetEase saying that Apple will release an iPad mini in Q3 2012. The price of the iPad mini is supposed to be between $249 and $299. The launch of the iPad mini is supposed to counter the Windows 8 Tablet tsunami.
