We've been hearing nearly every rumble of the coming iPad mini, but one point has eluded most until now, price. We know it'll most likely replace the iPad 2 in the market, that it'll want to compete with the Nexus 7 from ASUS and Google, and that it won't be as fast, or sport a high-end screen like the third-gen iPad.
Well, now 9to5Mac are reporting that Apple's starting price for the new iPad mini should float around the $329 price, somewhere in between the fifth-generation iPod touch priced at $299, and the Wi-Fi-only 16GB iPad 2 at $399.
The two higher capacity iPad mini's should be priced at around $100 extra per step, so 32GB for $429 and 64GB for $529. The base price for the new iPad mini could be higher, but 9to5Mac reckons it will hit $329. I do agree, as Apple have an uphill battle with their iPad mini. The Nexus 7 is doing wonders for Google and ASUS, with customers completely smitten with their Jelly Bean-powered 7-inch wonder tablet.
