Purported ‘iPad mini’ parts show front & back panels, LCD, nano-SIM tray

“A collection of photos claim to show a number of parts from Apple’s anticipated smaller iPad, including the front and back panels with a space for a nano-SIM tray, as well as the LCD display,” AppleInsider reports.

“The pictures, published on Monday by UkranianiPhone.com, suggest the headphone jack will remain on the top of the device like in the current full-size iPad, and will not be moved to the bottom as it was done with the iPhone 5,” AppleInsider reports. “The bottom of the device is also shown to have a space for Apple’s new, smaller Lightning connector.”

AppleInsider reports, “The rear panel of the iPad mini also includes a nano-SIM tray, which would suggest that the device will come in a model capable of connecting to cellular data networks… The alleged iPad mini front panel shows the thin side bezel that was previously rumored… Finally, another picture of the rear of the device is in black, with the Apple logo and simply the name ‘iPad”‘ with no mention of rumored names ‘mini’ or ‘Air.'”

  1. So the iPad Mini is also an iPhone Maxi. This would be a brilliant move by Apple since they not only offer an alternative to 7″ tablets but also to Samsung’s giant phones. If you like big phones why not get something really great.
