I spotted this dummy iPad Mini for sale on Taobao, China’s eBay, where I picked it up for roughly $13.

As you can see from the photos my dummy iPad mini features the thinner bezel which has been rumoured along with a iPod touch 4th generation thick body and rear camera.

This dummy also seems to be of a 3G or possibly even a 4G LTE version of the iPad mini as it features the tell tale black plastic strip and a mini (not Nano) Sim card tray.

On the base is the new smaller lightnning connector and the speaker holes much like the new iPhone 5.

The top is similar to the current iPad and iPod’s as it features the power/lock button and also a 3.5mm head phone jack. The dummy iPad mini has a new volume contol button design featuring two seperate buttons rather than the traditional rocker we have grown accostom to on the current iPad models.

Accoriding to the markings on this iPad mini, Apple will be offering a 64GB version of the tiny new iPad which with the cameras and 4G LTE could see the small screen iPad reaching prices of $600+!

What do you guys think of the iPad mini? I’m personally pretty excited about it after holding one in my hands and personally can’t wait to see if Apple actually will release this much speculated 7.85 inch iPad mini!

    You got me with you teaser on FB Andi :D!

    How real is it? (official apple like or just a good guess?)

    This is a no-brainer! Surprised Apple haven’t come out with this sooner, and wouldn’t be surprised to find this is not rumor at all. iPad-mini might be a bigger hit than the iPad.

    You picked it up for $13?! Is that a misprint, or do I need to go buy one of these?

  • robodude2829

    Lol. My bad! I was thinking that it was a functioning android tablet. Guess that’s what I get from buying Chinese tablets. I’ll try to read better next time.

    @Andi,

    Would you mind picking up a wm8850 tablet and reviewing it? Thanks.

    Yawn. Give me a phablet any day over a small single purpose tablet.

    I still maintain that the Samsung Note 2 will be the most important phone of the year. 3 weeks to go…

    The did smart job by cutting only the side bezel. Now this looks more of 16:10, Sort of appealing, My guess is the 3G version of this in Europe and Asia and WiFi version in North America will sell like crazy.
