iPad Mini to be Made by Pegatron?

iPad Mini to be Made by Pegatron? Rumors
If you despaired because the iPad Mini wasn't unveiled last week, I wouldn't give up hope just yet. New Chinese language sources are reporting that the iPad Mini, the mythological smaller cousin to the only tablet worthy of the name, is currently in production in secret factories in China.

According to the new rumors the Chinese OEM Pegatron has bid on and won the contract to manufacture around half of all iPad Minis. Their production is expected to be around 500 thousand units a month, and assuming this source is to be believed this will be the 7.849999" screen device that so many have been talking about.

So I guess this means the iPad Mini is still on the schedule for October. Retail is expected to be somewhere between $1 and $500 dollars, with the price probably likely resembling a skewed bell curve centered at $350.

  1. I didn’t realize the Pentagon was in the business of making tablets.

  2. “Mini is still on the schedule for October” Are you still predicting for a next year launch?

  3. Yeah, the unfortunate thing is that the iPad Mini will likely be $349, not the $199 we all hoped for. And $349 for 16GBs, while the new $299 iPod Touch has 32GBs and the new $399(!!!) one has 64GBs. Grrrrr.
