  • Apple to Unveil the iPad Mini On October 23?


    At the beginning of October, it was expected that Apple would begin sending invites for the iPad Mini unveiling event within the second week of the month. Time came and went, so it is raising ears as to when Apple expects to launch their tinier tablet.

    Rumors of Apple’s iPad Mini may finally come to a rest, as AllThingsD reports that Apple is likely to unveil the iPad Mini at a media event on Tuesday, October 23. It is currently unknown where such an event will take place, but it is known that the event will be invitation-only.

    The iPad mini is expected to be a cheaper alternative to the current generation iPad, offering Wi-Fi-only connectivity, a smaller 7.85-inch display, Apple’s new Lightning connector, and Apple's A5 chip. It will be great for people that need a portable tablet solution, possibly as an E-reader for school, and don't necessarily need all of the extra bells and whistles such as large displays, quad core graphics, and cellular connectivity.

    From what we know currently, Apple has reportedly begun production of the iPad Mini in Brazil. It’s only a matter of time before they unveil and begin launching the product. If everything goes according to plan, consumers may be able to pick up an iPad Mini within the month of November.

For a company that prides themselves on being so AMAZING AND INNOVATIVE it's pretty pathetic that they can't seem to come up with anything else

      BTW I love how you little fanboys always get soo but hurt when this guy or anyone else has anything negative to say. You think that just because this is a Crapple related forum that people can only speak positively and not negatively? I guess it's like they say, the truth hurts!
      Here we go again! The Crapple guy is back. Aren't you already burned to a crisp from being flamed over and over again for your repetitive negativity and utterly stupid "Crapple" remarks?
      You're not witty at all Sir, and yes I'm sure the truth hurts as much as having to filter through your rhetoric.

      If pushing "crap" can yield over 70B in the bank, you're mouth is certainly on its way to fortune.

      It might be or it might not be. At the end of the day people still buy it.

Why do you waste you're time and energy to complain about it day after day? What are you gaining? The answer is nothing. I like to think that everyone is mature and they will grow up eventually. I just hope sometime you will. Because its honestly getting old.

      The Faerie guy is just a troll. You can ignore him as he brings nothing to the table.

When we get a touch device with a storage capacity of more than 64gigs Im gonna be so happy... Still kinda sad that every iDevice got a makeover and upgrade and a new smaller iPad will be coming out, but still no love for us high storage capacity wanting iPod classic lovers...
      1. Get iTunes Match and stream everything.

      It's $25 per year. By the time you upgrade to another device, you will still have spent far less than Apple charges for the increased storage.

      2. The cheapest iPod Touch 5th-generation is $300.

      The iPad Mini cannot be over $350 because its entire purpose is to keep the $200 7" tablets from stealing Apple's market share. The iPad Mini will have to be in the same price-range as the iPod Touch 5th-generation, or even cheaper. By comparison, this would make the iPod Touch a terrible deal. With the iPad Mini, you'd likely have more memory capacity (1GB versus 512MB) and a faster CPU (A6 or A5X instead of A5). You'd definitely have a bigger screen (almost 8" versus 4").

      I really wanted an iPod Touch 5th generation, but I canceled my order today. The only logical assumption is that my money would be better-spent on an iPad Mini.

      I almost thought that too. Then I realized I don't real care what's more well-spent, I want something that does what I want. The whole reason I like the iPod Touch is because I can just fit it in my pocket. I'd have no real purpose for an iPad or iPad Mini. Unfortunately Apple always keeps the iPod Touch well behind other devices, but I am just going to have deal with that. Just waiting for a jailbreak now.

Truly, if i was Samsung or any other competitor to apple. I would focus on creating the next best device that is completely different from apple like the Samsung galaxy 3. The sg3 is sexy and I prefer the look over iPhone 5 and it's right behind the specification of iPhone 5. In this case I prefer the transformer prime over iPad. It all comes down to preference and knocking out competition. Only reason why I would get iPhone or ipad or Mac is to say i got one. There specification are satisfying not the greatest just satisfying and there products all work together. These are just my opinions. iPad mini sounds nice though i still prefer the transformer prime. Still gotta wait for the specification to come in then we can talk.
      I think it's funny how you concentrate on the specs of your devices but not the performance. You call us fanboys but you're the one that's been fooled by 'numbers.' You're reasoning doesn't hold up here considering the ip5 is the fastest device on the market w/ lower specs...

      ...and FYI, my iPad 3 outperforms my Transformer Prime in speed and responsiveness. So that argument doesn't work either!!!

      I bought the first gen iPhone after it dropped price from $600 to $400 (maybe I am wrong, but I believe that was the price difference in the months of summer 2007. I loved my iPhone but was sad that it was just 2G when the phone I had before hand was a LG 3G flip phone. Still loved my "2G iPhone" and held on to it until a friend of mine donated their "3G" when she upgraded to her "3GS." I kept my 3G until I grabbed my 4S. My parents ditched their Sprint to join my AT&T account, so I added two iPhone 5 accounts to my 4S account, and I grabbed my mother's 5 and gave her my 4S.

      I have decided after playing with this "long screen" (that I cannot even tell a difference between the 3.5" size), that I would be buying an Android phone when April came around and my personal 4S line was ready for an early upgrade.

      I will be buying an "iPad 4" (not mini), so I can use my paid apps, but my personal phone will surely be an SG4. I say this assuming the SG4 will be very impressive, and I find myself with a happy medium using my iPad 4 for iOS purchases, and my everyday phone being Android.

      No I am not a iFanboy nor am I an Android fan. I think we can coexist!

      Oh, it looks too much like the iPad mini. Its the same size, its the same color, blah, blah, blah.
      Apple are the pri**s of the technology world. They are the ones that are screwing the patent system up so bad. (Can I say screwing? Lots of other news sites do.)
      Sensing a lot of anti-apple sentiment in your posts....

      Not going to complain about the amount of articles written for the iPad Mini. What I would like to see is facts to back them up. Where are the leaks? IPhones always have them. Guess I'm just getting a bit impatient..I want one :]

      To many on both sides have to resort to insulting all the time (Samsuck, Crapple, etc.). Just shows the childish lack of maturity. Once I see a poster using that terminology I immediately disregard that post and any further posts from that individual as they have already proven themselves to be unable to carry on a meaningful discourse.
