Earlier today, we received further confirmation that Apple’s smaller iPad will be announced in an October media event. The name of this smaller iPad has been debated before, some thought it would be called the “iPad air”, but now we are hearing that could be called the “iPad mini”, according to a report by Macotakara (Google Translation):
According to Asian source, the name of Apple’s new product, which are expected to have 7″85′ and called as iPad mini, will be named as “iPad mini” officially. This source expects that “iPad” logo will be printed on back of case same as “iPod” is printed on iPod nano and iPod touch, and it means one new product will be added on iPad’s product brand genre..
This guessing game for the name of the next smaller iPad reminds me of the time when we were all trying to figure out what the original iPad would be called. Many thought it would be ‘iSlate’ but it ended up being iPad as we know it today. I have a feeling the name of the smaller iPad will not be either the ‘iPad Mini’ or ‘iPad Air’. It’ll probably be something else that will take us by surprise.
On a side note, Macotakara believes the next iPod Nano could come equipped with a WiFi antenna to enable support for iTunes Match and iTunes in the Cloud.
What do you think the smaller iPad will be called?
