Apple will unveil the iPad mini tomorrow on October 23. A couple days a leaked inventory sheet in Germany had the iPad mini start at $259. A new report on 9to5Mac has the starting price of the iPad mini though at $329. $329 is making sense, but is high compared to other 7-inch tablets from Google and Amazon that sell for $199. The german report had the entry-level iPad mini at 8GB. For $329 I expect though 16GB of storage. The $199 Amazon Fire HD also has 16GB. At $329 Apple needs to do some convincing that consumers should go for the iPad mini and not for the Amazon Fire HD. It is not a no-brainer at this price point.
The report confirms that there will be 4G and Wi-Fi iPad mini models.
The wait for all the details will be soon over. The Apple event will not only bring the new iPad mini, but also an updated iPad 3, new iMac, new Retina MacBook Pro and new Mac mini.
