CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Rumors Apple's anticipated 7-inch tablet will be called the "iPad Mini" are apparently on the mark and Apple will make it official, a Japanese tech site says.

Apple blog site Macotakara, citing an unnamed source, said Apple is officially planning to bestow the "iPad Mini" moniker on the 7.85-inch tablet, PC Magazine reported Monday.

While there has been speculation Apple would introduce the slimmed-down tablet when it unveils the next iPhone Sept. 12, indication now suggest Apple will debut the new tablet at a later, separate event, PC Magazine said.

Speculation is rife that although the current iPad is known for its high-resolution Retina display, the little-brother version may feature a cheaper, lower-resolution screen that would let Apple price the smaller tablet to compete with Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire, both available at $199.
