For as long as we can remember, or at least for the last several months, we've all dubbed the device that Apple is widely expected to announce next week as the "iPad mini."
But now a notable Apple blogger is saying the Cupertino, Calif., company may not name the device "mini" after all.
John Gruber of Daring Fireball in a post offered two other possibilities for the name of the rumored 7.85-inch screen tablet.
The blogger said he believes the device is more likely to be named the "iPad Air" or simply the "iPad."
"'Mini' just doesn’t feel like the right way to describe something that’s remarkably thinner and lighter but not that much smaller than the regular iPad," Gruber says in the post.
Gruber points to the MacBook Air as an example of why Apple may decide to go with the name "iPad Air." Gruber says the MacBook Air's selling points are the same as the rumored iPad's: thinness, weight and price.
