Ukrainianiphone.com reports to have obtained parts for the upcoming iPad mini. The parts, labeled in the gallery above, according to the Russian-language website, were from a source who visited the factory in Asia. Notables include the plastic spacer bars, which Apple has traditionally used for 3G and 4G radio equipment, and an Audio jack at the bottom like the new iPhones, iPods, and the nano SIM tray that “broke off during disassembly.”

The LCD displays appear to be of the same ilk as the recent Kindle Fire displays rather than the iPad Mini’s 4:3 display. So, take this with a few with pinches of salt.

The other parts look just like a big iPod.
