iPad Mini surfaces in Taiwan in the hands of a race car driver

If not for what he is holding up in his hands, you may never know that the guy in the picture is Jimmy Lin, a Taiwanese race car driver.  While Steve Jobs is busy building the iPad 2, Jimmy decided to reveal what Apple might be fabricating behind closed doors, the iPad mini.  The picture was posted by him on Sina, China’s answer to Twitter’s microblogging, boasting about his “new mini iPad.”  As for the reliability of the picture and the rumor, we would advise you to take it with a grain of salt, as there are already many cheap, Chinese iPad knockoffs and this could be one of those.

Until the claim is verified, we’ll let Jimmy have his fun with his “new mini iPad,” but what do you guys think?  Is this the iPad Mini or not?  Feel free to sound out in the comments section below.

    I don’t think that one is a really 7inch iPad, as I don’t see the camera on it!! it’s a Big Old Hoax!
    Well, to the iPad 2, Im looking forward to be thinner, lighter, and with the camera, of course Facetime video chat support, though the first iPad make me sucked in videos and movies enjoy, though sometime need the help of iFunia iPad video converter for lack of flash support, I think if have the camera will be cooler and more appeal~
