After this Wednesday came and went without even a whisper of an announcement from Apple regarding the rumored iPad mini, the whole Apple following webosphere went crazy, and panicked that somehow Cupertino had messed it up. Some even went as far as speculating that the launch was “delayed”. How a – as yet – mythical device can ever be delayed is beyond me, but still, that’s what sources have been spilling.
Apple will hold a special event this month at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad. People familiar with Apple’s plans tell us that the company will unveil the so-called “iPad mini” on October 23 at an invitation-only event… Sources declined to specify where the event is to be held, and I’ve not been able to confirm a location.
The most recent tidbit of speculation being thrown in to the pot states that we can expect a media event on October 23rd (11 days time) which Apple will use to showcase the 7.85″ iPad mini. As with any rumor, digest with the usual pinch of seasoning, as nobody really knows for certain if Cupertino is even planning to release the smaller version of the world’s favorite tablet. Keep ‘em peeled.
