iPad mini to hit the shelves?

18 April 2012

ipadsCrikey! Would you believe it?! There's a rumour about an Apple product! That is very, very unusual isn't it? Well, the latest muttering comes from China, where there are claims that someone has the details of the imminent release of an iPad mini.

Chinese site, NetEase, are saying that Apple will be releasing the device later this year to "counter attack" the upcoming Windows tablets.

The report also reckons that an iPad mini will set you back US$249 to $299 and that 6 million units are prepped for launch. Are Apple trying to muscle into the affordable end of the market? Seems so.

Foxconn will be making the iPad mini, so expect many more stories about people being mistreated, dying and such in the meantime.

Not that it'll stop anyone from wanting one of these devices, should the rumours transpire to be true.

    I eagerly await Samsung suing Apple in German courts because they made a smaller tablet device years ago in a similar nonsense case to the one Apple brought. A new device launch doesn't mean shit unless you are being sued by half a dozen competitors.

    I'm eagerly waiting the story about Apple being sued by the entire US for price fixing of eBooks. Knowing BW's track record, they'll run the story when everyone has heard about it in 6 months and just cut and paste it from another website. Fucking cretins.

    I'm eagerly awaiting more videos of the type which featured babes & donuts in a car being splashed with creamy milkshakes. To be honest, that's the only reason I come here.

    Why make an iPad Mini when their bigger iPad, with higher margins, is flying off the shelves> The iPad 2, still for sale, covers any market for a cheaper device.

    iPad mini? Isn't that an iPod?

    I'm pretty new to fishing, and would love to know how to kill a fish so that it stops breathing instantly. No matter what I do they seem to carry on breathing! Is it the case that they are dead but that the body takes longer to respond? I find it all quite traumatic - I would love some advice?!

    @ Mike Hock... I was thinking exactly that? wasnt the purpose of the ipad to be an upscaled larger ipod....? Now it's too big and needs to be smaller again? I find it testament both to the sheer brilliance of Apples marketing Dept who pull this kind of thing... and also to the sheer brilliance of Apple fanboy's who fund and fuel this farcical pantomime. The rest of the world loves you Apple fans! So get your wallets ready - apple is about to crimp off another one straight onto your chests... we, the rest of the world watch with excitement as you lap it up like two girls with a cup.

    I'm pretty new to fisting, but I'm eagerly awaiting the fox to turn up in my garden to try and grab a couple of pieces of that chicken I've left out.

    Biff, what a daft question! You need a preist, you then twat it over the head as hard as you can. This will kill it instantaneously. Or you could watch, Robson Green's X-stream Phishing.

    Oh yes and even though I'm pretty new to Bitterwallet, isn't it normally Andy Dawson that breaks these Apple stories?
  • Mary H.
    I'm new to fisting too, and am eagerly awaiting the girls swapping that 'one' that has been crimped out on some poor, unfortunate individual fanboi's chest. I think, he's reffering to chest pooping, but what a teacup has to do with all that shnanegans, I am unsure.

    Andy is scouring the BW bin in search of groundbreaking Apple stories. Unfortunately, he seems to have missed the glaringly obvious story about said company, being sued by the entire US and their grans for price fixing of iPad eBooks. Fucking cretins.
  • Mike H.
    Most likely due to the fact I'll give a whole 'wodge' of abuse as soon as this really old story is copied and pasted from Reuters. Andy: In other news, Apple are to bring out phone mixed with iPod and computer, fanbois lap it up like a freshly crimped off phat one being swapped greedily in a teacup by two Latvian sluts in gimp suits.

    Shhhhhhhhh.......or fucking Boris will turn up banging on about fucking coffin fucking pies.
  • Biff W.
    Thank you, I'm off to punch a trout
  • Lieutenant S.
    Why is it that people are allowed to swear on these type of websites?
  • Mike H.
    Remember to take your fucking priest, Biff.
  • Zleet
    @ Lieutenant Spunkbubble Fuck knows.
  • Mary H.
    People who swear should be fucking shot.

What do you think?
