With the iPad mini presser all but confirmed (think October 17) and today’s report that Foxconn is now assembling the device at its new facilities in Brazil, a set of handy new images surfaced that help compare the rumored 7.85-inch iPad mini to Amazon’s and Google’s tablets, with size and form factor in mind.

If a series of side-by-side comparison shots depicting how an unreleased device stacks up against real tablets is to be trusted, the iPad mini should be slightly wider than Google’s and a tad taller than Amazon’s…

The images (via French blog NowhereElse) depict the 7.85-inch iPad mini next to Google’s Nexus seven-incher and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD.

Here’s another image that compares the iPad mini versus the regular iPad, iPhone 5 and iPhone 4S.

A nice closeup.

Just one more.

Don’t freak out over the lack of tapered edges on the mini iPad because you’re really looking at a dummy someone in Asia created based on the rumors.

NowhereElse has 21 images in total so check out the source link if you’re hungry for more.

What do you think, is this mini iPad going to eat everyone’s lunch?

  • Those tapered edges on the iPad 3 look far better. Also, the tapered design feels better, comparing the iPod touch 4 with the new one.

    • Do you just look at the pictures and not read the article?

      • I only comment on articles I read. If I’m not interested, I’ll keep scrolling. Back to the point, Apple already moved away from the tapered edge design for the iPod touch. There were rumors about the iPhone and, as far as I know, they turned out to be true.

  • Looks like a cheap version of the iPad.

    It’s not too much smaller and for half the price isn’t to bad either !!!

  • Johnathan Jennings

    Looks like shit and it’s not happening

    • That’s what people said about the iPhone 5 leaks and that also didn’t happen… oh wait -____-

      • This isn’t a “leak.” It’s a dummy that someone in Asia built based on the rumors.

      • True but now there are leaks and they look just like this so it may be the real deal.

    • Byron Davis

      Exactly. I don’t think it will either. I know everyone remembers the teardrop shaped iphone that never happened.

  • @dongiuj

    Perfect size for me. After looking at those pictures between the iphone and ipad, i’m sold.

    • Kurt

      i bet you it will have 4 columns of icons and you will swipe right to left to get to other pages of icons! INNOVATION HERE WE COME!

      • @dongiuj

        You’re most probably right. But they might just go totally different and swipe up n down with just one icon on each page. Wahooo!

  • I have my money and am just waiting for this to come out, I got my wife the Fire last xmas, but that is just not for me. Getting my i5 at the same time.

    I guess Apple have read my mind and knew that i wished the ipad was a little smaller and a little more affordable lol .

    If this is thing is a reality in production, i’m sold .

    Thanks Apple .

  • Irfan Tarique

    this time i am not going to disagree with the rumours


    Hehehehehe!!!! iPad is longer!!!! I was sooooo laughing like a school girl!

  • I’ll just keep using my Nexus 7 and smiling. Apple can make this whatever size they like, but because they will never make it as open and flexible as an Android device, it won’t get my vote or dollar.
