http://techcrunch.com – The iPad Mini speculation could be about to be put to bed if a report in the WSJ is on the money. The paper is reporting that Asian suppliers to Apple have kicked off mass production of components required to make a smaller version of the iPad. The paper cites “people with knowledge of the situation”. South Korea’s LG Display company and Taiwan’s AU Optronics started mass production of the LCD screens for the new device last month, according to the paper’s sources. Apple does not comment on rumour and speculation but we’ve reached out all the same. (Update (IT news)
