A retailer is gearing up for the rumored Apple Inc.(NASDAQ:AAPL)’s smaller iPad by sending out in-store displays to sell accessories to customers even before the iPad mini has been officially announced.
AppleInsider could get hold of an image that has instructions for individual displays designed to sell iPad mini accessories. The manual comes from a large box that includes part from which the future displays will be gathered.
The tipster has pointed out that the pages that are labeled as Amazon/Apple Tablet Display Parts List comes from a box with a note attached to it, telling workers not to peep inside. They mentioned that the papers had fallen out of the box and disclosed contents of the recently delivered package.
The shipment comes after lists of dozens of supposed cases for iPad mini were exposed in a spreadsheet on Wednesday. That list of products suggests that third-party accessory industry makers like Kensington, Trust and Belkin have cases for Apple’s iPad mini all ready.
The fact that the name iPad mini is written on the design of the accessory display must not be taken as a confirmation that it will be the ultimate name of the rumored product. Since the name of the iPhone 5 was not known as makers of cases made accessories based on leaked diagrams, several cases will be available for sale.
Case makers have often put bets and lost on rumored Apple products before. In 2011, a few third party accessory makers had banked on entirely redesigned look for Apple’s next iPhone, however, that October, the iPhone 4S was launched with a design nearly identical to its ancestor.
Apple is predicted to hold an event this month to officially take the curtains off the iPad mini with a 7.85 inch screen size. The firm is believed to have ordered over 10 million units for sale this holiday season.
