7.85-inch iPad to go into production at Foxconn Brazil in September

Foxconn Brazil to start making the 7.85-inch iPad in September

Rumors of a 7.85-inch iPad have been coming in thick and fast, with the latest news to crawl down the spider web of the Internet over the weekend is that Foxconn's Brazil-based plant will start production of a 7.85-inch iPad this coming September.

Japanese blog Macotakara has reported:

According to Chinese reliable source, the tablet called iPad mini will be produced in Brazil, however production test to collect data for new cutting machine is already done in China. Source said that, production phase of this tablet will be started since September, and this tablet should be shipped until holiday season, but announcement will not be so soon.

The 7.85-inch iPad is also said to sport 3G capabilities, but all other details are virtually non-existant. I expect the device to be super-thin, super-light, and hopefully it'll retain a decent screen resolution. Even 1280x720 or 1440x700 (or so) would be nice. I think these iPad mini rumors aren't just rumors anymore, but there seems to be enough reports from reputable sites talking about it, that we should expect Apple to want to combat Amazon's Kindle Fire, and the freshly-announced Nexus 7.
