iPad 2 blue Smart Cover

Well, there goes any speculation that Apple might call its smaller 7.85-inch tablet the "iPad Air."

Apparently the Cupertino-based company is already prepped to sell smart covers for the iPad's smaller sibling, and it's calling them "iPad mini Smart Covers." The revelation is courtesy of 9to5Mac, which has also learned that Apple will begin selling the coers in dark gray, light gray, pink, blue, green and red. Unfortunately we have no link to any reference of the accessory, but 9to5Mac has been dead-on with its Apple reporting recently.

There you have it, folks. It's called the iPad mini and we'll know more later today.
