Another day, another rumour around the iPad Mini. This time it’s claimed that Asian factories have begun manufacturing the long-rumoured device.
Reported by The Wall Street Journal, the device apparently has a 7.85″ display with a resolution that is lower than that of the Retina Display iPad 3 – it’s actual resolution is not known.
Images of the device appeared last month, and show that it’s form factor will place it in direct competition with the Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7.
Fortune also reports that an unnamed source claims press invites will be sent out on October 10th for an October 17th reveal of the iPad mini – with a November 2nd release date.
