Apple's 7.85-Inch Mini iPad Will Be Super Thin and Built In Brazil In September

By Sam Gibbs on at

Seems the rumours are getting stronger for a mini, 7.85-inch version of the iPad. The latest comes from "reliable Chinese sources" that say the fabled tablet will be built in Brazil in September, which means it really could be here in October.

Details on the rumoured tablet are frustratingly scarce. Apparently it'll be super thin, thinner than the new Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire, which will make a nice change from the growing girth of its bigger, 9.7-inch brother.

Still, take this with a massive pinch of salt, but with Foxconn Brazil supposedly lined up and even Bloomberg getting in on the act, we really could see a new iPad mini at least by Christmas. [Macotakara via MacRumors]
