ipad mini official

Wal-Mart has cut the price of the iPad mini, adding heft to speculation that next month’s World World Developers’ Conference (WWDC) could be marked by a second take on Apple’s micro-tablet.

The US retail giant, the sheer size of which in its US domestic market makes Tesco look like Arkwright’s homely corner shop from Open All Hours, has trimmed $30 off the iPad mini. That brings the cost of the device down to $299.

Although fairly modest, the price cut comes ahead of Apple’s press call/developers’ get-together in June, suggesting to some tech-watchers that the unveiling of iOS 7 could be accompanied by the company’s Google Nexus 7-challenger.

Recent indications from Apple’s supply-chain had suggested that the iPad mini 2 wouldn’t arrive until much later in the year, after the company’s manufacturing partners purportedly encountered production problems.

These are believed to relate to the challenge of creating a scaled-down high-res Retina display for the slate, as well as issues with the fingerprint-scanning technology that is intended to add an extra layer of security.
