The 7.85-inch iPad mini that is making the rumor rounds might be manufactured in Brazil if the latest report from Macotakara has any merit. The Japanese publication says the machining is done in China, but actual production will be in Brazil where Apple already makes the iPhone.

Some more details:

  1. Makotakara believes there will be a Cellular ’3G’ model
  2. It is about the height of a portrait 16:9 Nexus 7 but wider – facilitating the 4:3 ratio and slightly bigger 7.85-inch display.
  3. It could be released as early as September
  4. It could be as thin as an iPod Touch according to the report
