While most of the rumors surrounding Apple's upcoming Wednesday conference are based around the highly anticipated reveal of the iPhone 5, French blog Nowhereelse hasn't forgotten about the iPad mini. Until now, details surrounding the smaller tablet have been kept closely under wraps, but these alleged mockup photos may give us a sneak peak at what's to come.
For a comparison in size of the upcoming iPhone 5 and iPad mini, one photo shows an iPhone 4S inside an iPhone 5 case, inside a potential iPad mini shell, which is placed in a shell for the current iPad 2. If the leaked photos are real, it looks like the iPad mini could very well measure 7.85 inches, as previous rumors suggest.
Although Apple is expected to unveil its next-generation iPhone on Wednedsay, a previous report suggests we won't be seeing the miniature tablet until October. A smaller version of Apple's popular iPad could definitely help with Apple's lead in the tablet market. But with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD already establishing a large following, the iPad mini will have to be aggressively priced to keep up. We'll just have to wait and see what the iPad's mini-me can do.
