If this supposed image of a gadget part taken from a factory that assembles Apple products in China were to be believed, then there's a big chance consumers could soon get the iPad Mini many Apple fans have been waiting for.

Now, if this is indeed a part of the rumored smaller and more affordable version of Apple's slate, it would be interesting to note that, contrary to earlier predictions and fan design concepts, it doesn't quite have the tapered sides of the new iPad and it lacks a rear-facing camera.

All we know for sure is that last week, at the ensuing Apple vs. Samsung patent infringement trial in California, this alleged internal email from Eddie Cue - Apple's Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services - to other Apple execs telling them that they should do a 7-inch iPad was presented in court;
