Apple to Send Out iPad Mini Event Invitations on October 10th?
Apple will send out invitations to an event to unveil the iPad mini on October 10th, reports Fortune.
This is a rumor we have no reason to believe except it comes from a major Apple investor who says he's heard it from "multiple sources." According to our source, who asked not be named, there appears to be some truth to the widespread rumors that Apple is preparing to launch a smaller and cheaper version of the iPad -- often called the iPad mini or iPad air and usually described as having a 7.85-inch screen.
The source says invitations to the iPad mini event will go out on October 10th which could suggest a date of Wednesday, October 17th for the event.
It's long been rumored that Apple will unveil a smaller iPad this month. Smaller tablets like the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD have been very successful and Apple has yet to offer a product to rival its competitors.
