Sources all over the web, including Cult of Mac, have been posting this picture of a Taiwanese pop star and race car driver called Jimmy Lin, who claims to be holding a genuine, authentic prototype of a 7-inch iPad Mini in his right hand. Most commentators on the internet seem to think it must be a fake, especially as Steve Jobs has previously said that Apple does not intend to ever bring out a 7-inch iPad. Itâ€™s not even a very clear picture, so itâ€™s hard to get all excited, but then again, you never know! Taiwan is often the source of very accurate Apple news, as many components of Appleâ€™s devices are made there, so itâ€™s not beyond the bounds of possibility that someone in Taiwan might be able to get their hands on a prototype, especially a celebrity, as they always seem to get cool stuff before the rest of us!
