As we usually mention this when talking about Apple leaks recently, either Apple has become really, really sloppy at keeping secrets (nothing like what the company was before) or they’re applying a new policy of controlled-leaks to build up the buzz (at the expense of the surprise factor).
The iPhone 5 was out there way before its official unveiling and if that’s an indicator at all then the iPad Mini rumored for some time is already out there with all the leaks. The latest compares a full-sized dummy model to the regular iPad and (after seeing pictures of it recently), aside from the difference in dimensions, you can clearly see the sub-eight-inch screen, home button, backplate, volume buttons, cameras and everything a fully assembled and working iPad Mini should have.
While the general perception is that the thin bezel is a great thing, we’ll have to actually hold and operate this tablet, if it turns out to be true, to agree to this fact.
