Apple (AAPL) is already renowned for its gorgeous computer and gadget designs, but one analyst says that the best may be yet to come with the iPad mini. Per AllThingsD, it seems that Topeka analyst Brian White has been making the rounds with Apple’s Asian component suppliers and has concluded that the upcoming tablet “could outshine the new iPad in terms of how the device feels in a consumer’s hands” while also noting that Apple “did not skimp on the aesthetics” of the device. Early leaks of the iPad mini suggest that the tablet will feature black anodized aluminum casing and a 7.85-inch display that features thinner side bezels than the standard iPad model.
