The folks from BoloPad have leaked what appear to be the first images released with a unit actually on and working instead of just the aluminum shell or parts. Given the history of the iPhone 5 leaks all being quite accurate, I think it’s safe to assume that these are actual photos of the mini iPad.
Photos of the metal case with out any internals made their way around the net a few weeks ago, and they look exactly the same.
The rumor mill is reporting that we’re supposed to be seeing an October launch, so I would keep your eye’s peeled for more leaks and news about that over the next few weeks.
We actually got to check out an iPad Mini case at IFA, here is our video if you want to get a sense of what it looks like up against the new iPad and the iPhone 4S.
