iPad Mini rears its mini face

Written by Nedim Hadzic

Nothing Mini about the price though

With leaks and rumors of Apple’s iPad Mini aplenty ahead of launch, it has come to our attention that German retailer Media Markt has as much as 16 versions of the device in inventory.

Many punters believed Apple would price the entry level model at 299 dollars/euros, but the inventory listing shows the entry level wi-fi only 8GB model for €249. There are a total of 16 SKUs in black and white, with 8, 16, 32 and 64GB of storage. The 16GB version is priced at €349, and the 32GB and 64GB versions cost €449 and €549, so no surprises there, the usual €100 bump for extra storage.

The same goes for cellular versions, they cost €100 more than wi-fi only SKUs, so the cheapest data enabled iPad mini costs €349 with 8GB of storage. However, we reckon most consumers will go for the cheaper wi-fi only models rather than high-end cellular SKUs priced at €500+.

In related news, 9to5mac claims that the iPad Mini will not be the only new device at its own launch, as the company is set to roll out a 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. The MacBook should also come with a thinner and lighter enclosure and, as usual, higher price, but we'll see soon enough.
