Apple Sending 'iPad mini' Event Invites Next Week
According to the scuttlebutt capturing headlines Monday, Apple - as widely expected - is reportedly going to begin sending out invitations to its next media event. What we are hearing is that the event will be dedicated exclusively to the unveiling of a new product.
By all accounts, the new product in question is the iPad mini - the smaller, more affordable alternative to the iPad intended to better rival the smaller slate of competing, lower-priced tablets flooding the market today form the likes of Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
According to Fortune magazine, a trusted source close to the matter now indicates that Apple will start sending invitations to the press on October 10th. The event will most likely take place within the following ten days, the source suggests.
If the rumor is true, and if Apple follows its usual scheduling protocol, that would suggest a special event to unveil the product on Wednesday, Oct. 17, with a launch day of Friday Nov. 2 -- plenty of time to capture holiday sales.

I work in a large retail store in the UK and I think that this is going to be massive (in sales not in size LOL)
We sell hundreds of Ipads a week and if they are even more affordable then we wont be able to get enough of these.
They are going to sell like hot cakes.
So long Kindle Fire and Galaxy Tab. All hail the new king of the budget tablet.

While this is good news, I sure wish they would release a new iMac.

Wouldn't it just blow everyone's mind if instead of it being mini, it was jumbo!

I thought it would make more sense for an iPad mini to be released with the regular iPad, in March.
But guess due to Holliday shopping, a November release can take advantage of that.

I wasn't that big on owning an iPad until I had one for a couple of days. I loved it but they are a little pricey. I'm so excited about the iPad mini easier to manage and more affordable. I sooooo hope this rumor is true

I'm surprised there hasn't been any debate on what it's going to be called. I would guess iPad Nano but what do I know...

I think it's all BS I'm skeptical this product will come out, especially a month after iPhone 5

Is there a possibility they could release a 15-inch MacBook Air alongside this? Really want one of these!
