The source gives some detail on the production plan of this new iPad, and contrary to other rumors indicating that the new tablet will be ready for the summer holidays, the new iPad mini quoted by the rumor would be ready for sales in September 2012.

The prototype of this new device would be roughly the same size as the Nexus 7 tablet recently announced by Google but a bit wider and with the as thin as the current iPod Touch. As a comparison, the device would actually be thinner than Amazon’s Fire Kindle tablet.
