The rumored diminutive iPad slated for October is still coming, according to people familiar with Apple’s plans. Even though Apple hasn’t sent out its press invitations on October 10, as rumored, the tablet itself is slated to launch October 23, a reliable source informs.
People familiar with the situation are telling All Things D that “Apple will hold a special event this month at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad.”
Author John Paczkowski says “the company will unveil the so-called ‘iPad mini’ on October 23 at an invitation-only event.”
The blog, owned by the reputable Wall Street Journal, has often been spot-on regarding upcoming product launches from Apple Inc.
This time around, the event is expected to be held in the company’s Town Hall auditorium at its Infinite Loop headquarters.
