‘Banned iPad mini Promo’ hits revealing the iOS 6 tablet is ‘the future until May, at least’

What better way to start your stormy Monday than by enjoying some tech news. So what if it isn’t Google’s media event that was supposed to unveil a variety of Nexus devices including the Nexus 4, Nexus 10 and new Nexus 7 flavors, all running Android 4.2? You can always learn more about how the iPad mini was made.

But not by looking at Apple’s official, and usual, introduction of the newly launched product, the kind of promo video that’s always aired during an Apple announcement event, but by checking out JLE’s “Banned iPad mini Promo.”

These guys have been making such promo spoofs for a long time now – we have just recently seen the “Banned iPhone 5 Promo” – and we can’t say we didn’t expect them to share their insight on what making the iPad mini means. For them.

Now, if you want to check out Apple’s original iPad mini promo, we have also embedded it here:

As for those Nexus announcements, we’re yet to hear from Google on the new event date. Meanwhile we have some fresh Nexus 3 rumors to chew.

    Overheard from Apple fanboy (true story). “I’m buying the new iPad mini because the ‘New iPad’ is already obsolete. Plus my ‘New iPad’ has scratches at the back.” . <– OMG! Really?

    • Kagnon

      Scratches on the back,
      now a new reason to upgrade your device.

        So that’s why the iPhone 5 comes with scratches!

    • Kok Hean

      Is. He. Serious?

      • Marky

        I’m serious. That’s my officemate who said that last week. I say fanboy because he buys all Apple devices – Air, iPhone, iPad, iPod and now Ipad Mini. Ironically he dual boots Windows 7 on his Air and I almost always see him using it in the office. I don’t know why. I guess there’s a Windows-only app he needs to use for work but I really don’t know coz all the time he’s just using MS Office.

        • Kok Hean

          He probably is a fan of Windows but he likes the thinness and weight of the MacBook Air. My mother won a MacBook Air from a lucky draw and I am envious of how light it is as compared to my school laptop.

          I own an iPad and a 4S (because they can be jailbroken) but I like Windows over Mac OS X. Sure, Mac OS X looks nice and iOS devices sync along with it nicely Macs are too pricey and I prefer how Windows work.

          • Marky

            Buy a Mac Air then use Windows because he really loves that OS? I can’t quite grasp the logic behind that. There are lots of awesome Windows laptops out there, and just about as thin as the Air, but cheaper. Then again it’s his money. :P

          • RarestName

            On the plus side, he gets both OSes working (almost) flawlessly.

    With all that product “confusion”, no wonder Apple’s marketing team has to be so damn good…
