Apple iPad Mini HandRumors about the new iPad Mini are everywhere right now. Because Apple constantly changes their designs right up to the release date, it is hard to say what will be true by the time they hit the market. But one possibility seems more likely than the others. Sources say Samsung has been asked to provide high resolution retina displays.

Currently the iPad Mini uses LG Display and Sharp screens, both Japanese companies that are probably going to be retained for the newest model. But the Korean company Samsung is said to be joining the line, ensuring Apple has all the screens it needs in the lead up to the release.

If this is true, the resolution on the iPad Mini would be a lot higher than it is now. Making it a better contender for other products currently hitting shelves like the Nexus 7.

Historically, the announcement has been shrouded in secrecy. Every year has been filled with a ton of new surprises to look forward to. Sure a few general upgrades may be known about but this year it we’ve been given a lot of information early and unless they have something huge up their sleeve we aren’t going to be seeing any huge surprise products this time around.

Latest iPad “Mini” rumors: design, price and specs

iPad and iPad MiniFirst let me begin that here is no name set for the 7″ iPad that is expected to be announced in the near future. If it follows the iPod it will be called a Nano but the “iPad Mini” and “iPad 7″ have all been tossed around as well.

The Amazon Kindle has proven that 7″ tablets have a place in the hands of consumers and between its success and the upcoming pre-order success of the Nexus 7 this is the first piece of technology that Apple is going into in years where they are actually late to the table. That being said iPad’s are still the tablet of choice and therefor should have a quick advantage on taking the throne of the 7” tablet.

According to Mashable – Gene Munster of Piper Jaffray, one of the industry’s top analysts, told attendees at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference in Aspen that an iPad Mini was “highly likely.”

So why is it likely? Well it basically is an easy way to expand their product line in the tablet market. While they own 90% of the 10″ market it lowers to 75% when you look at the market as a whole and that’s a lot of additional room to grow in still.
