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.

    I can only assume the iPad mini will be 16:9 ratio thus being true wide screen :) FOr the current iPad to be 16:9 it would need to be ~11"

    This is not news... please tell me one thing this article brought us? It makes a bold claim about a subjective attribute of a tablet with no evidence. For all we know, the feel they are talking about could be crap to tech users and a God send to apple users.

    I know apple gets a lot of hate on this site, but it is stories like this that open a door for the hate. I mean really... there is already an article talking about how apple's map program is closer to doing what they claimed it could do at its announcement.

    Eh, iHaters are more funny than anything else. They blindly hate Apple for no better reason than because it is highly successful (similar to people that love local garage bands but hate on bands that get famous...lol). I guess they rather buy stuff from foreign companies?!? I am proud that Apple is a US company and been a customer since my fist MAC in late 80s.
