iPad Mini Design Said to Outshine New iPad's Design

Apple's highly-rumored iPad Mini will boast a design that outshines the company's third-generation iPad, according to an analyst.

Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White said recently in a research note that "Apple did not skimp on the aesthetics of the much anticipated iPad Mini. In fact, we believe the iPad Mini could outshine the new iPad in terms of how the device feels in a consumer's hands."

While White didn't divulge information on how the "feel" might be different, the iPad Mini will reportedly feature a 7.85-inch display, with Apple's current iPad having a 9.7-inch screen.

Apple is reportedly preparing to announce the iPad Mini, which can be seen here in mockup images, on October 17. Production of the tablet has apparently started in Asia.

    7.85" vs. 9.7", not much of a "mini" like a normal tablet, which is usually 7" vs. 10.1". If they can get them to $299, they will sell pretty well, though I would never give Apple another dollar of my money.
