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.

Three things to look forward to.
The next iPhone.
Possible mini iPad.
Amanda Palmer's new album.
It'll be a good week next week.

I really want to see how it's going to turn out. I use my iPad sooo much but I can't really imagine working productively with a bt keyboard and a smaller screen.

There's only two ways things can end up next week, I hope it's not disappointing! I'm very excited for the new iPhone, as for the mini iPad I'll buy it as long as it has it's own unique features."You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not"

im just gonna wait til iOS 6 jailbreak comes out for iPhone5 and new iPad mini, i can wait, there's really nothing that spectacular with unjailbroken apple products. i'm still rocking my jailbroken atv2, iphone4 and ipod4g. the apple television might be the only product imma be thirsty to buy if it turn out like the rumors say.. plus i doubt iPad mini will be mentioned because there would of been leaked photos from china of its pieces, like the iphone5 leaks..

I for one can't wait. As a father of three with a very modest income, the iPads have been a bit beyond my price range. The only reason I'm fortunate enough to have the 4s is the 2 year agreement. As far as the next gen iPhone, well, maybe when my upgrade rolls around.Noobus Majorus thanks are welcome <---

They might as well debut it. It would be only a month away. I'm sure they will and then release it in October

edited to say: In fact, I'm considering that perhaps the mini can replace both my phone and pad. Jailbroken I can make phone calls and use up my data since I don't talk on the phone much at all. I'll see what happens.

There will not be an iPhone mini as Apple will just keep the 3GS for sale at probably an even more reduced price.

He may have thought it is a more functional tablet computer like the ones on PC back in the 90's, one you can install programs like office and do actual work. This iPad has nothing really to differentiate itself from iPhone/iPod except larger screen with a bit better but comparable apps... sometimes...
iPhone 5 have larger screen, if anything iPhone will get bigger not smaller.
Oh, don't really care for the mini since I already have iPad sitting on my desk collecting dust.
