“A theme has emerged for iPad Mini rumors: multiple models,” Brooke Crothers reports for CNET.
“One version of the Mini, as prognosticated, is a thinner, lighter, faster version — sans a Retina display,” Crothers reports. “NPD DisplaySearch first anticipated this Mini update in June. As did Citi Research. Digitimes chimed in Monday with a similar rumor.”
Crothers reports, “Though a thinner/lighter design is not unexpected, it’s still impressive, considering that the Mini is already a mere 0.28-inches (7.2mm) thick and only 308 grams… Digitimes spiced up its Mini Retina rumor with the prospect of ‘an almost bezel-free look.’ If true, this would indicate that Apple has big plans for the redesign.”
