As the Google Nexus 7 started to ship, the New York Times runs an iPad mini rumor report.
The New York Times published today a report about the iPad mini. They do not reveal anything new and just confirm what the iPad mini rumor mill is already saying since month. Apple will be releasing a 7.85-inch iPad for much less than the $499 iPad. The iPad mini is coming this year.
With Google new shipping the 7-inch $199.99 Google Nexus, Apple appears to actually has done controlled leaks of the iPad mini. This totally makes sense as Apple is coming in late with the smaller and more affordable iPad mini.
The iPad mini is set to become the hottest Holiday gift of 2012. Watch out and order as early as possible to avoid shipping delays because of iPad mini stock shortages.
