Fanboys frolic on recyled rumours of Q3 iPad Mini debut

Tech speculation will eat itself

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Take care with fresh claims that Apple will have an 'iPad Mini' out in Q3: they seem to be simply repeating a similar claim made back in March.

Then, Taiwanese moles said the Mac maker would have the scaled-down iPad out in the third quarter - or at least launched within that three-month period. These claims echo rumours whispered in December 2011.

The new report, from Chinese-language site Ease Apple, says exactly that. Confirmation of sorts the earlier claim? Not really, no - the Ease Apple article cites "Taiwan media reports".

Ditto the suggestion that the small iPad will cost £249-299. That figure seems to have been taken from past stories too.

Likewise the speculation that the 7.85in fondleslab is designed to spoil Microsoft's Windows 8 launch - or at least the new OS' appearance on tablets.

The Ease Apple piece does talk about iPad Mini shipments totalling an "estimated six million", but it gives no indication who has made that estimate. Probably some unnamed mole of Taiwan tech industry newssite DigiTimes'. ®
