Analyst Believes Apple Launching iPad Mini to Fight Nexus 7

There’ve been rumors of Apple releasing a seven inch tablet for years.

According to Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves, Apple will finally trot out the iPad Mini in October to counter Google’s Nexus 7. He also dropped some numbers for the iPad Mini’s specs—a 7.85 inch screen and 8 GB of internal storage.

How much can you expect to drop on the iPad Mini? $299, if such guesses are right.

The analyst predicts that the iPad Mini will sell 10 million units in 2012 and then 35.2 million units the year following.

Do you buy into Hargreaves’ prediction for an iPad Mini to hit the market? Or is this yet another rumor that ought to be put to rest?
