Apple iPad Mini is leaked by Samsung document

Remember when Steve Jobs said that 7in tablets would be dead on arrival? Yeah, us too…

Steve Jobs once famously stated that 7in tablets would be "dead on arrival" – but that hasn't stopped rumours of a 7.85in iPad being thrown around.

Now thanks to page nine of a Samsung document obtained by OLED Display, it would appear that Apple has been working on a "7-inch product temporarily referred to as the iPad mini," due for release in the third quarter of this year.

Could Apple unveil an Amazon Kindle Fire-killing tablet alongside the iPad 3 this Wednesday? Quite possibly, but as with all iPad rumours we're taking this with a crateload of salt for the time being.
