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.
