Is This the Backside of the iPad Mini?

Mike Cane turned up a new set of leaked photos this morning. They show what I think rally could be the iPad Mini. There's not much to the story besides the photos, but I am ever so hopeful they're the real deal.

If they are then the iPad Mini is going to have a camera on the back. The cutout might suggest a 3G model but it also might be there to free up the Wifi antenna (otherwise it would be blocked by the metal shell).

While you're looking at the photos, check out the bottom edge. It looks like this shell has the new smaller dock connector that is rumored to be on the next iPhone. Pretty cool, huh?

Next week is Apple's yearly Wordlwide Developers Conference (WWDC), so I'm sure some are expecting for this to be unveiled there. Not me; Apple likes to make a true spectacle whenever they unveil a new gadget, which is why they are all scheduled as stand-alone events.

Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

    Please take ipad not ipod apps. Fun to speculate, thanks Nate.

  2. What do you mean by Mike Cane turned up these photos? I appreciate the link, but what does that mean? Please supply full credit in the event you are saying someone else came about these photos. If someone found them on our site and showed you, you should mention them as a hat tip.

    • Mike Cane is a friend of mine who often turns up links for me. Sometimes he does his own post and sometimes he doesn’t. He’s fine with getting named as the source, so I don’t usually link to him.

      But you’re right that I should more explicitly name you as a source. Will do.

    There is an update to Graham’s site now. At the top. Come on Apple Keep the price point on this reasonable.

  4. It looks like there’s a micro sd slot on the top pic, so I doubt this is an actual Apple product.
