A Chinese blog has published images of third-party iPad mini cases that reveal the tablet’s final design.
Should the images
speak the truth about Apple’s up and coming product, it seems the iPad mini will (too) boast a rear-facing camera for photos and video.
The cases point to a tapered back shell (like the iPod touch). The volume buttons are present on the right side of the device, and the speaker grills appear to be placed close to the dock connector. A hole for the hardware switch can also be seen.
Pretty much all the elements are there to make a miniaturized version of Apple’s current-selling tablet computer. The iPad mini is regarded as Apple’s secret weapon to take over the tablet industry with a high-quality product at an affordable price.
