    Default Photos of Working iPad Mini Leak


    Alleged photos of the rumored iPad mini leaked today, putting another dent in Cupertino's famed veil of secrecy.

    The photos appear to depict a production run, or prototype iPad Mini running iOS 5 (as one can garner from the Maps icon). If real the photos appear to confirm many of the rumors currently circulating regarding the device's smaller physical appearance including rounded iPod like edges. However, the edge to edge bezeless design doesn't appear to be part of the final design, although the bezel is slightly thinner along the sides of the device.

    Apple's secrecy, while historically impressive, has taken a massive hit in the past two years. Between the iPhone 4 Gizmodo debacle, and the continually leaked images of the iPhone 5, not much has not been known about Apple devices before their release recently. The only surprise of late came with the Retina Display MacBook Pro and even then the specs sheet was pretty much predetermined.

    Apple's supply chain is simply too massive, with too many players for the company to maintain the level of secrecy Jobs was accustomed to during the height of Apple hysteria. Speculation used to rely on trickles of information leaked out of rusty faucets, that no human with an ounce of critical awareness would believe. Now, the leaks are so frequent, and so substantive they're rarely given a second look. Apple's product announcements are filled with almost no suspense as the results are a forgone conclusion. The only people disappointed are those who ignore all the "leaks" or continue to hope and pray that Apple has "one more thing," even though all the specs, and design elements of products are leaked beforehand.

    And you know what? This only applies to the iPhone and iPad. Rumors of newly colored iPods surfaced, but there were no actual photos. And the redesigned iPod mini was a pleasant surprise. But, those aren't the big ticket items. Even the people looking to leak information aren't interested in them.

    The iPad mini appears to be another victim of Apple's success. We know what is in the pipeline. Heck, some even have it in their hands. We'll all tue=nein to the announcement and hang on Tim Cook's every word. Eventually though, people might get sick of not being surprised.

    True story. The leaks ruined the iPhone 5 release, people were underwhelmed at an amazing product. If the same thing happens with iPad mini, maybe leaks will be less desired.

    @ Don Underwhelmed by an amazing product? I fail to see the "Amazing" part. Sure, it has a bigger screen, and 4g, but these have been on competing phones for years now.

    As far as the iPad mini goes, I will definitely be buying one if it proves to be true.

    EXACTLY. The iphone 5 gave everybody what they were asking for, updated OS, bigger screen and LTE but i guess because so many people read about it ahead of time, it took some of the luster off it. My only gripe with the iphone 5 is I wish the screen was a tad bit bigger, maybe like a 4.3. Never the less, its preordered and im counting down until friday lol.

    Dude, have you seen it? It IS amazing. They did all the upgrades in a thinner lighter yet still EXTREMELY well built package. It's a marvel of engineering, something which I fail to see in any droid.
    And yes, the koolaid tastes great.

    Steve Jobs cared. Apple does not.

    I'm sure apple cares, but there's nothing they can do to stop it. Maybe they should stop being so dam secretive & show there new ideas a few weeks before production. Apple's old marketing strategy of introducing a new item a week or so before release, no longer works.

    *GASP...are people starting to see Apple products for what they really are? Polished pieces of older technology?? Notice I did give Apple "polished" I will admit that. But in truth, their products are half hype

    That's good, the bezel gives you something to hold on to. It wouldn't be good to remove it completely especially since it's a touch-screen device.

    Agreed when Android phones were on "fake" 4G on AT&T (HSPA+ or whatever its called) they didn't mind it. But when iPhone 4S on AT&T was called 4G.. android people had a fit.

    What are people talking about the iphone 5 is crap! If apple doenst push a jaw dropped product in the year they will start losing customers. You may or may not agree but i am an apple fan boy and i was seriously disappointed that were just getting a 4inch screen. Look what the competitions has. Everyphone has its ups and downs but really.. waited a year for the iphone 5 when its the 6th iphone... mite was welll call it the iphone 4s+

    Are we even sure this "iPad mini" isn't just the larger iPhone they just announced?
