Apple's iPad Mini, which is expected to launch at the end of October or early November, will likely be a Wi-Fi only device, according to The Guardian.
That means you won't be able to connect to cellular data networks like you can with some models of the full-sized iPad.
Assuming The Guardian's sources are solid, Apple's decision to skip a cellular data connection in the iPad Mini is likely to keep the price low and competitive with popular 7-inch Android tablets that cost around $200. For example, Google's Nexus 7 tablet starts at $199, and there are rumors the price could drop to $99 in time for the holidays.
So far, most have predicted the iPad Mini will cost between $199 and $299.
