Gizmodo has posted a photo today of what they claim to be the screen for the alleged iPad Mini we’ve been hearing so much about. Apparently, the screen is exactly 7.85 inches diagonally, which lines up with current expectations of the device.
Interestingly enough, the screen doesn’t have a standard 4:3 aspect ratio like the current iPad, although if recent rumors are to be believed, this very well might just be the case.
Gizmodo notes that iFixit’s Kyle Wiens has said that the screen could possibly be just ripped from another tablet, but at this point, it’s hard to tell. In fact, Gizmodo themselves are leaning on the side of caution with this photo, so it’s safe to say that it might not be all that legitimate.
What do you think?
Update: It’s been seemingly confirmed that the display is indeed only a Kindle Fire display
@samfbiddle Hey, that “iPad mini display” you posted is a Kindle Fire LCD. A bit late as it’s already made the rounds, but please kill it.
