iPad Mini price set at €249 (£200)? Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 start sweating…

iPad, Tablet, Tech Digest news

ipad-mini-first.jpgA European price list for the iPad Mini has been leaked, suggesting Apple will be aggressively pricing their minuscule tablet.

German site MobileGeeks claim to have got their hands on an inventory list used in Europe and Asia which gives pricing details of every single iPad Mini models set for release, with the price given in Euros. If their information is to be believed, the 8GB entry-level iPad Mini will cost just €249, roughly £200, or $320.

That’s an incredibly competitive price point, putting it in the same bracket as the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7 Android tablets.

All in, the leaked inventory gives details of eight separate iPad Mini models, with 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB variants available, with Wi-Fi only or Wi-Fi + Cellular connections rounding off the eight. No word yet on whether cellular means 3G or 4G, but fingers crossed for the latter.

That puts the top-spec 64GB iPad Mini with Wi-Fi and Cellular connection at €649, or just over £520.

Not exactly pocket money, but not exactly bank-breaking either, across the range. It’s a smart move by Apple, offering a cheap entry level and still ramping up the options for those who must have the very best of anything Apple branded. Expected to be revealed in just under a fortnight’s time with sales opening soon afterwards, this could be a massive Mini hit this Christmas.
