Source Suggests Media Invite to iPad Mini Event Now Imminent
A source close to Apple's corporate marketing inner circle tells MMi today that he believes the invite to Apple's media event unveiling the iPad mini will likely be sent to members of the press within the next 48 hours.
Based on the information shared and corroborated over the weekend by a report from Reuters
, Apple could raise the curtain on the iPad mini as early as next week. A source speaking with Reuters says that Apple will host an event on October 23rd with the smaller iPad reaching consumers possibly before the end of October.
These details are emerging on the heels of claims by Topeka Capital analyst Brian White, who says that he beheld the iPad mini while in Asia recently. "We actually had the opportunity to play with a pilot iPad Mini used by one of the vendors," White says. "This 7.85-inch iPad Mini fit our hands like a glove and we were easily able to tuck the device in our sport coat, offering consumers a more mobile iPad experience for certain use cases."
Since the iPhone 5 was unveiled last month, all eyes have shifted to the second-most eagerly awaited new Apple product of the season - the iPad mini. And we may finally feast our eyes on the still unconfirmed new Apple device within a matter of days.
