Even though the Cupertino tech giant has not yet announced the new 7.85 inch iPad Mini that everyone on the internet is talking about, rumors have been up and running for a long time. And today, we think there has been a legitimate leak from one the largest retailer in the Europe about the pricing and the different versions of the premium 7.85 inch tablet coming out very soon. As you can see from the image above, there will be a lot of versions of the iPad Mini right from 8 GB up to 64 GB, with cellular network and without a cellular network. The combinations are just too many.
Also, the image shows the price of these versions of the tablet in Euros. If you are living in the United Kingdom or the United States, then you might think of just converting the price of the tablet to your currency. But Apple’s products have never been sold out like that. These prices are what Media Markt (Europe’s largest retailer of consumer electronics) will be offering for its customers. Daily Mobile writes:
While these conversions from Euro’s to American Dollars have not always held true in Apple’s pricing game just by doing the simple conversion it shows the 8Gb iPad mini (with just the WiFi no cellular antennas) going for 320USD and the 8Gb iPad mini with cellular and Wifi going for 450USD. Admittedly this is “cheap” for an iPad I don’t know if it’s cheap enough to swing your average consumer from the 200USD Kindle Fire, or the 200USD Nexus 7. A swing of 120 dollars is still a good deal of money in today’s tough times. The upper end of the range is the 64GB version which lands around the 710USD price with just the Wifi and a whopping 840USD with cellular antenna. While the iPad Mini will sell well naturally I don’t see it bring new users in the Apple fold.
That sounds very true to me. Anyone who is interested in a budget tablet would go for the Amazon Kindle Fire or the Google-Asus Nexus 7. What would you do?
