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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
