As far the release of Apple iPad Mini is concerned, there is no shortage of rumors. This time a Japanese blog site Macotakara has made the claims that the new tablet device will be built in Brazil at Foxconn’s new productions facility there. They also ensured that the production will begin in September this year in time to be released in stores, just before the Christmas season. Macotakara also maintained that this information has been obtained from a very reliable source in China.

The report goes on to state that the iPad Mini of 7.85 inches is thinner than Amazon Kindle Fire which is 11.43 mm and is almost as thin as a iPod Touch which was 7.2 mm. Google’s forthcoming Nexus 7 is reported to have a thickness of 10.45 mm. In addition, Macotakara sources also say the iPad Mini will include 3G mobile connection.

As reported earlier in the media, both Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal have given their support to the rumors about the release of iPad Mini and its dimensions, believing the screen with the resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels ensures full compatibility with most current applications without changing anything. Both these media groups have also supported the October launch date. It is however believed that since these news corporations already published their reports on iPad Mini’s release and its features, people are likely to give credence to this Macatakara report as well.

Some observers think Apple is making the iPad Mini in response to the launch of Google and Amazon, and in anticipation of cashing on a possible growing popularity of these devices.
