New, detailed iPad mini photos emerge ahead of expected launch date

The photographs of an alleged iPad mini are 'most convincing yet'

As we approach the expected launch of Apple's rumoured iPad mini, new photographs of what is claimed to be a leaked model of the 7-inch tablet have emerged online.

The photos, published by Sonny Dickson on his Twitter, match with many of the previously leaked parts, and include a rear camera, lightning connector, and rear microphone.

Business Insider calls the photographs the 'most convincing' yet, and we would have to agree. However, none of the photographs show the front of the iPad mini, so we are led to believe that Dickson has only got his hands on the back plate of the device.

The latest iPad mini rumours suggest that Apple will issue invitations to its launch event this week, and the on sale date could be 2 November.

Recent leaks suggest that the iPad mini could have an anodized back plate, and could come in a Black & Slate model like the iPhone 5.

A graphic designer has created photorealistic renderings of the rumoured iPad mini, revealing what the device could look like if Apple makes it available in the colours of the new iPod touch models, which are expected to ship this week.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
