iPad Mini rumours corroborated by analyst

Rumours that a more compact edition of the iPad is in the pipeline got fresh legs today, after an analyst cited evidence that the much-rumoured, little-seen device has entered production.

Barclays analyst Ben Reitzes referred to signs that the so-called iPad Mini is on the way to market in a research note to investors.

He wrote: "Our global research team still sees some evidence of this product in the supply chain - and we wouldn't be surprised if it wound up in the iPod touch category if it indeed sees daylight.”

Reitzes’s comments follow separate reports yesterday that Foxconn has been enlisted to manufacture a seven-inch screen-toting iPad.

The smaller Apple slate, which previously appeared to have been ruled out in the wake of caustic comments about similarly sized Android tablets from Steve Jobs, is purportedly due to land in August.

Jobs pilloried the notion of a seven-inch iPad on the grounds that its lack of screen real estate would not be conducive to creating "great tablet apps".
