The last 24 hours have seen the iPad Mini go from heavily discussed rumor to just about certainty. There was a flurry of information about what the device is rumored to look like (and this render shows it nicely), and now we have what looks to be the first part leak. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this comes from Nowhereelse.fr, who have been regularly leaking internals over the last week or so.
This is said to be the dock connector for the iPad Mini, sporting the new mini dock that has caused such discussion with the new iPhone leaks. You can also see just to the left of that a long cylinder, which is said to be the headphone jack. If these parts are correct, then the iPad Mini will also see the headphone port moved next to the dock connector, which seems a bit bizarre.
