The iPad Mini rumor is becoming a regular with more and more reports indicating its existence as well as trying to unveil some more details. We’ve last heard that production might start in September and now we also find out that it will be allegedly go down in Brazil.
Apple has a factory in Brazil and, according to the latest reports, anonymous sources seem to have it on good authority that the Nexus 7 competitor, the iPad Mini, will be manufactured there, even though some production tests are being conducted in China. Furthermore, the report claims that the smaller iPad, which should hit the market in time for the holiday season, will be thinner than the thinnest seven-inch Android tablet on the market, and offer a 3G variant too. Compared to the Nexus 7, the iPad Mini will allegedly have the same height but will be a tad wider — which could be normal given the wide aspect ratio of Apple’s tablets).
