iPad Mini in the Wild?

Marco Arment has spotted some new device models in the logging of his Instapaper servers:

I saw two curious entries in Instapaper’s device stats today: one iPad2,5 and one iPad2,6. (There were also a few iPhone5,1 devices, but that’s not a surprise — that’s almost certainly next month’s new GSM iPhone.) We can expect this to be an updated version of the iPad 2. Some say this is just the new iPad 2 with a smaller dock-connector. But I won’t be surprised if the iPad mini is a downscaled version of the iPad 2. I even expect the normal iPad 2 will be discontinued.
