iPad mini rumored to be called iPad mini, iPod nano rumored to get Wi-Fi

Apple's rumored 7.85-inch iPad is colloquially referred to as the iPad mini could end up being called just that, and the iPod nano could end up getting Wi-Fi so it can access iTunes in the Cloud and the subscription iTunes Match service. This according to Macotakara

Regarding separate iPhone 5 and iPad mini events

John Gruber of Daring Fireball wrote yesterday that he thinks it's unlikely Apple will introduce both the iPhone 5 and iPad mini at the same event, rumored to be taking place on September 12.

Poll: How much do you think Apple would charge for an 8GB iPad mini?

How much would Apple charge for an 8GB iPad mini?

How much do you think Apple would change for an 8GB iPad mini? We've already had Chris Umiastowski weigh in with the investor perspective, but I'm all about the iMore nation -- I want to know what you think. The Amazon Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7 are both $200 but both are also sold at break even or below, and Apple doesn't do that. Amazon and Google also have very different business models, and ones that don't require profitable hardware sales the way Apple's does.

Now Apple does sell the 8GB iPod touch for $200 already, but that hasn't been updated since 2010 and probably costs quite a bit less than that to make. Could Apple sell an iPad mini for the same price? If Apple keeps the entry-level iPod touch at $200, could Apple sell the iPad mini at $250? At $300?

The 16GB iPad 2 is currently $400. Could Apple get the entry-level iPad mini up anywhere near that? $350 maybe?

I don't think Apple could or would go lower than the current iPod touch, and I don't think they could (even if they would!) go any higher than the current iPad 2. So that leaves us with a range for about $200 to $350. Where do you see the iPad mini fitting in?

Check out all the info we put together on the iPad mini and then vote up top and tell me why you voted the way you did in the comments below!

iPad mini preview: Imagining Apple's smaller tablet

Rumors of a smaller iPad have persisted for years, probably ever since Apple announced the original 9.7-inch iPad back in 2010, and definitely since competitors from Samsung to BlackBerry to Amazon to Google have shipped 7-inch tablets. Over the last few months, what it will look like, why Apple would release it, how the interface would work, what kind of display it might have, what it could be called, and how much Apple could charge for it are all questions we've tried to tackle.

Despite all this, despite a few parts leaks and some information about the Dock connector, there's still a lot we don't know -- like what Apple will ultimate call it. But whether it's the iPad mini or the iPad Air, or the 7- or 8-inch iPad, the there's a lot we've tried to think through and put some context to. Here's a quick roundup of what we've put together so far -- everything you need to know.

iPad mini components reportedly begin to leak, but are they legit?

We've seen tons of part leaks in regards to the next generation iPhone over the last few weeks, but very few when it comes to the iPad mini, and next to nothing about what might be going on inside it. With the iPhone reportedly set for introduction on September 12, and release on September 21, production is likely sufficiently ramped up to make parts leaks more likely. While the iPad mini might also be on track for the same introduction day, we don't know when it will ship yet, so there may simply not be as many parts yet to leak. However, a new part discovered by Nowhereelse.fr could give us our very first look at the internals of the iPad mini.

Poll: What do you think of the supposed iPad mini design?

What do you think of the supposed iPad mini design?

So we thanks to a trio of reports from across the Apple-net tonight, we might just have some idea of what the iPad mini will look like. Nothing is confirmed until Apple shows it off on stage, of course, but if we're going to speculate we might as well do it right and ask you, the iMore nation, just what you think about this supposed iPad mini design?

If it's in between a 9.7 inch iPad and an iPod touch, does it make sense it's proportionately narrower than the current iPad but wider than the touch? And that the bezel isn't as wide as the current iPad, but still wider than the iPod touch? How about it being as thin as the iPod touch? Is there such a thing as too thin?

You know the drill -- vote in the poll up top and then give me your insight in the comments below. iMore nation, is this the iPad mini you're looking for?

iPad mini won't be much smaller, but will be a lot narrower, thinner, and lighter

iMore previously reported that Apple would be releasing an iPad mini in October for around $200-$250, and that it would be announced at the iPhone 5 event on September 12. At the time we heard that it looked and worked like the 9.7-inch iPad, only smaller. That makes sense both from a financial and interface perspective. However, unlike the next iPhone whose parts leaks have given us an idea of just what it might look like, the exact design of the 7-inch iPad has been much more mysterious. Earlier tonight, however, Seth Weintraub from 9to5Mac posted a mockup of the iPad mini showing a narrower profile with a much thinner size bezel than the 9.7-inch iPad.
