The rumor that never dies; new report claims iPad Mini coming soon Although it has been rumored for over a year, it appears Bloomberg feels strongly that an iPad 'Mini' is coming this October to compete with the Amazon Kindle Fire line and Google's new Nexus line.
The new model will allegedly be 7.85-inches, and will not feature a Retina Display like its standard sized third-generation iPad has.

Supposedly, the Mini will "have the same number of pixels as those in the iPad before it was upgraded to the so-called Retina Display earlier this year", meaning a resolution of 1024x768. By having the same resolution as past devices, Apple will avoid any developer fragmentation issues.

The Wall Street Journal earlier claimed that Apple's component suppliers will be in full production on the device starting in September.
