The possible release of the iPad mini is one of those rumours that just won’t go away. The latest such rumblings come from Chinese tech site MyDrivers, where ‘anonymous sources’ claim that the 7.85 inch iPad mini will feature Sharp’s IGZO display and retail for under $300. As Wired points out, IGZO is a new and improved manufacturing process that makes displays “thinner, higher in contrast, and less power-hungry than current display technology”. It is worth noting that this technology was rumoured to replace the IPS screens on the new iPad, but this turned out to be false. The report also says that the smaller iPad will be as thin as the iPad 2, have a resolution of 330 pixels per inch and 8GB capacity, which will go for between $250-299. There is no mention of release dates, though a previous report from net portal NetEase claimed that the iPad mini will be launched in the 3rd quarter of 2012. With the recent release of the Google Nexus 7 (among a bevy of other 7″ android tablets), it’s not surprising that Apple reportedly have plans to introduce a more cost effective and portable iPad.

EA Mobile has once again launched a massive iOS sale – this time for the 4th of July celebrations and as a result, nearly 50 of their iPhone and iPad games have dropped to just $0.99 (up to 90% off). Titles like MASS EFFECT INFILTRATOR (its previous lowest price was $2.99), Burnout CRASH!, Real Racing 2 HD and much more can now be had for only a buck. The fire sale is good until July 9th, so you will have just under a week to pick up some awesome deals. As well, Chillingo – now a subsidiary of EA – is offering Air Mail and the recently released The Act (TMA Review) for a dollar. The complete roundup of App Store links after the break.

This week felt like the proverbial Christmas in July when it came to new games for iOS devices. In addition to the fine list I've compiled below, gamers were treated to a quirky tower defense game called Vampire Season. You are Dracula's right hand man, and you must use a crazy assortment of ghouls and what-not to keep those pesky humans from finding Dracula's coffin. If you're more into RPGs, Squids Wild West might float your boat. This sequel to last year's acclaimed aquatic tactics game (TMA Review) takes a whole new look at the concept of cowboys. For those that want something completely different in tone there's Frisbee Forever 2, the game that lets you show off your virtual disc throwing skillz. It’s free and looks to be sporting some pretty sharp graphics for a game about tossing a plastic object through the air.
