Photos of Physical Mockup Of iPad Mini With Thinner Bezel

After countless physical mockups of the next generation iPhone being shown off on video, it is now the turn of the iPad mini to get the same treatment.

Two sites, Giga.de and Apple.pro, have posted images of iPad mini physical mockups, incorporating the thin bezel concept that John Gruber wrote about a few weeks ago.

While at that time all we had were a few mockups made up in photoshop, these new physical mockups better illustrate the smaller size of the device as well as the thinner bezel. The mockups also include the smaller dock connector that Apple’s rumored to adopt in newer iOS devices.

The folks at Apple.pro obtained the mockup images through a listing on Chinese ecommerce site taobao.com, while Giga.de found an all metal mockup of the device at the ongoing IFA trade fair in Berlin.
