  • Will The iPad Mini Debut at Next Week's iPhone 5 Event?


    On Tuesday, Apple began formally issuing invitations to members of the media ahead of the company's iPhone 5 unveiling next Wednesday, September 12th. Almost immediately after the invitation became public knowledge, inquiring minds wanted to know if next week's event was only about the next generation iPhone.

    As it turns out... it probably is.

    According to the inside word within the pool of knowledgeable industry analysts and market watchers, there will be no mention of Apple's rumored forthcoming iPad Mini during the September 12th event. All attention will be concentrated on the next-gen iPhone for the remainder of September.

    October, on the other hand, is a different story.

    As MMi's Phillip Swanson reported August 25th, current plans purportedly call for Apple to host a separate - and equally well-hyped - media event in October to formally unveil the company’s smaller iPad - a lower-cost alternative to the traditional iPad which may prove a huge seller in emerging markets throughout 2013.

      What about a new iPod Touch!?!? That's all I want is a faster iPod Touch! I feel as though everyone's forgotten about it.

      Is anyone else thinking that the so called "iPad Mini" will actually turn out to be the new iPod? Or am I the only one?

      It makes since to me...iPod is such a recognizable brand/name, and it is dying off (at least by Apple standards)...What better way to reintroduce and reinvigorate the iPod then to market it as a "mini iPad"? It sure beats being "a iPhone without a phone."

      And i highly doubt Apple is going to keep the use of the word "touch" associated with any of their product names. I think people get the idea by now...yes, you TOUCH the screen, this is not new anymore...No way Apple brings "touch" back.

      The iPod is famous for being a media player, a "iPad mini" would be more than capable of keeping this tradition alive....WHO WANTS TO BET!!?

      You actually make a very good point but the iPod has always been considered a 'music player.' An iPod XL wouldn't be convenient to carry around if you're just wanting it for music. Because of that portability issue, I'm thinking it won't be named an iPod. Aside from that, what you said makes total sense!
