New Reports of the alleged “iPad Mini” point to a wholly Redesigned Tablet that looks more like a Big iPod Touch

Up to now, the idea of a smaller iPad has remained vague and nondescript. Most of us probably assumed that, should Apple choose to make it, the “iPad Mini” would just be a shrunken version of their normal tablet. But as the suspected launch date draws nearer (September?), we’re beginning to get clues indicating that the 7-inch tablet might sport a totally new design—including a thinness beyond what was expected and narrower bezels.

Yes, if these schematics we’re seeing truly depict Apple’s new tablet, then calling it a spin-off of the iPad would be a stretch. It’s more like a blown up iPod Touch, in the opinion of many. While pretty unexpected until now, this sort of design does make it seem more feasible for Apple to price the smaller tablet around $200 or $300—the price required if it’s going to compete with more affordable devices like the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire.

Another idea in circulation includes the option to get a 7-inch iPad with 4G LTE and cameras OR one with Wi-Fi and no cameras. Pretty stark contrast there, but maybe it’s how Apple manages to cater to those seeking a much lower-priced device.

It’s a lot to think about, unless you remain on the fence and refuse to believe in the smaller tablet. But even if that’s the case, you’ve got to admit it’s getting harder and harder to tune out all this commotion about an “iPad Mini” or a “big iPod Touch.” The question is, does all this noise make it any more real?
