Retailer leaks iPad Mini price list starting at £200

But inventory leaker admits catalogue could be filled with placeholders

Top three mobile application threats

Apple's new iPad Mini will sell for £200, if screenshots on a German site are to be believed.

Mobilegeek.de is showing images of an inventory spreadsheet from the German gadget store Media Markt, which shows various models of iPad Minis listed alongside their prices.

The cheapest iPad Mini, an 8GB Wi-Fi-only device, is listed at €249 (approximately £201 or $322). The most expensive model, a 64GB cellular device, is listed at €649 (£523 or $841).

Sixteen different variations of the iPad Mini are listed in black and white, ranging from 8GB to 64GB, in both Wi-Fi only models as well as those with a cellular connection.

A Reg reader claiming knowledge of Media Markt's internal documents adds: "It's not a fake at all, I know what their system looks like."

Florian Schimanke, the blogger from whose site the screenshot was sourced, tweeted (in German) that although he believed that the screenshot was definitely from Media Markt's system, he could not confirm that the prices were accurate.

The iPad Mini is believed to have a 7.85 inch screen, and is expected to be launched on 23 October. Apple reportedly hopes to sell 10 million of the Minis. ®
