iPad mini rumours persist, as details of an LCD display emerge

After a quiet few months, rumours of a seven-inch iPad Mini have resurfaced. Details are emerging of what kind of display such a tablet device will sport, along with a price point.

With the emergence of the Google Nexus 7, this particular rumour mill has begun churning in the face of competition, with speculation mounting that an iPad Mini will in fact be released, sporting a IGZO LCD panel made by Sharp.

Sharp already has the capability of constructing 330 ppi displays, so if a seven-inch iPad Mini does indeed emerge then we might be seeing it fitted with a Retina Display. 

We’ve told you about iPad Mini rumours before, including what kind of price Apple will be placing on it. MyDrivers.com, who have also speculated on the type of display, says we should expect to pay between $250 and $300, which fits in with what we’ve been told before.

Google has unveiled its own seven-inch tablet in the mould of the Google Nexus 7, which will be available from £159. However, Apple has never been one to indulge in price wars so if, and it’s a big if, the iPad Mini does appear then expect it to cost more than the Google Nexus 7.
