    Kotaku has word today of fresh rumours about the possibility of Apple launching a mini version of the iPad. According to the report, the latest rumour first appeared on Chinese website NetEase, and says that the new, smaller version of the iPad will be released in Q3 of 2012, in a bid by Apple to “counter attack†the forthcoming Windows 8 tablets. NetEase goes on to say that the new iPad minis will cost in the region of $249 to $299, with an initial shipment of 6 million units planned. NetEase even has information on the companies that will be making the new iPad mini, namely Foxconn and Pegatron. Kotaku notes that Pegatron was previously a subsidiary of Asustek, the company that is currently working on a new line of Android tablets for Google. As the chatter from Apple’s supply chain grows ever louder about the possibility of an iPad mini from Apple, it starts to sound more and more credible.
