An entire treasure trove full of rumors has been cracked open over the past few weeks. And yet, they’re still coming, even at the weekend. AllThingsD reports that Apple is planning a special keynote event to launch the iPad mini in October, just in time for the holiday season. The site claims that its source is reliable, and given the publications history, it would be foolish to dismiss without thought.
Apple’s next generation iPhone and its so-called “iPad mini” will debut at two separate events this fall, rather than a single one as has been widely speculated, according to several sources.
Only after the next generation iPhone is out the door and on sale will Apple announce the smaller iPad it’s been working on. That device, which is expected to have a display of less than eight inches, will be uncrated at a second special event, which sources said is currently scheduled for October.
We had already heard that Cupertino is planning a two separate events for the iPhone 5 and iPad mini. As a reminder: we’re looking at a September 12th event for the iPhone 5, and a launch of the – as yet fictional – iPad mini in October. One question remains: will they both fit in your Christmas stocking?
