Retailer leaks iPad Mini price list starting at £200
But inventory leaker admits catalogue could be filled with placeholders
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.
Re: All these iPads
2010 just called, they said you can keep their joke as it wasn't particularly funny back then either.
At £159 the google nexus is a steal. At £50 less than a "proper" ipad, for thr 7" version, why one would anyone bother?
Given the new iPod Touch starts at £249 in the UK and the iPad at £399 its difficult to see how an iPad mini would slot into the existing line-up and still be a competitive choice. Assuming it does exist then I cant see how it could sell for any less than £300 as a starting price, which frankly is too expensive to make sense. Maybe the iPod touch is on its way out at it'll be priced as an alternative to that. Hard to see it fitting in though.
Re: That would be £40 rather than £50 cheaper, and the magic word is
I'm nerdy, I appreciate tinkering, so a microSD-less tablet is hopeless.
I bought a 10.1" tablet from a little known Chinese brand and it is absolutely excellent. IPS screen, 10 point touch, front facing stereo speakers, HDMI, USB host, microSD.. You can keep your nexus and your iPad at any price.
How many times do we have to tell you...
It's an iPod Touch Maxi, NOT an iPad mini.
