iPad Mini may arrive in 16 different versions

Apple-iPad-Mini

The world is eagerly expecting the arrival of the first Apple iPad Mini tablets, scheduled for release on October 23 this year, so there’s no surprise there has been a lot of speculation lately. The latest rumor coming out now says the iPad Mini will arrive in 16 different versions.

The information is preliminary but has a strong ground – it comes from Europe’s largest electronics retailer – Media Markt – that shows 16 different variants of the iPad Mini. The list shows models with 8, 16, 32, and 64 GB of storage, then each of those comes in either black or white, and WiFi only and cellular radio models (presumably the same GSM/LTE radio as the iPhone 5).

Media Markt has also been kind enough to list the expected iPad Mini pricing. Apparently the base iPad Mini model with 8 GB of memory and Wi-Fi will cost 250 USD. Options such as next storage level and having a cellular radio add 100 USD each to the price so the 8 GB cellular and the 16 GB Wi-Fi model will cost 350 USD, the 16 GB cellular and 32 GB Wi-Fi models will sell for 450 USD, the 32 GB cellular and 64 GB Wi-Fi versions will cost 550 USD, while the 64 GB cellular version will top it all at 650 USD.

Another rumor regarding the iPad Mini claims the tablet will come with a 4490 mAh battery, which puts it right in between the iPhone 5 and the new iPad 3. That’s plenty of power so the iPad Mini may last quite a while.

We’ll find out everything about the iPad Mini on October 23 so stay tuned – Hitechreview will report on the launch event too.
