“Apple next week is set to launch a new, smaller iPad that is expected to come in four different storage capacities and two color options,” Neil Hughes reports for AppleInsider.
“The full list of presumed ‘iPad mini’ product stock-keeping units, or SKUs, shows a total of 24 varieties,” Hughes reports. “Four different models will be offered — described as P101, P103, P105 and P107 — which one person familiar with the inventory said likely signifies four different storage capacities. The lineup could suggest that Apple plans to introduce an 8-gigabyte model that would serve as an entry-level model for the lower-priced 7.85-inch iPad. Currently, the full-sized iPad does not come with a storage capacity lower than 16 gigabytes.”
Hughes reports, “Each of the four different product descriptions also come with three different distinctions: ‘GOOD,’ ‘BETTER,’ and ‘BEST,’ which could signify Wi-Fi-only, 3G, and 4G LTE models, respectively. Each model is also available in ‘A’ and ‘B’ variants, which likely identify color options of black and white.”
