Apple invites members of the press to attend a product launch on October 23rd, where we assume the long-rumored iPad mini will be unveiled.
Quote:
The event will go down merely weeks after Apple took the wraps off of the iPhone 5 (and strangely enough, the Foo Fighters played their last show for the foreseeable future). It's quite unlike Apple to throw two product parties in the fall, but if an entirely new iPad is being revealed, it may be a scenario that becomes more familiar in years to come. At this point, we're left with far more questions than answers: will the iPad mini really ship with a Lightning port, while the Retina iPad -- which was only introduced in March -- continues to ship with the "old" Dock Connector? Will Apple really continue to refresh its two iPad products at different intervals? Will the (presumed) AT&T iPad mini actually include mobile hotspot functionality?

And while we're at it, is Apple really going to throw a "one more thing" into the mix by bumping its 13-inch MacBook Pro into Retina territory? After all, tossing "little" into the invite could allude to a smaller iPad and an update to an already-small laptop. We'll be there to bring you the blow-by-blow as it happens, so feel free to go ahead and take next Tuesday off. We'll sign the approval form.



What are your thoughts on the iPad Mini?

Damn, sad to hear.

My wife purchased the iPad1. Then the 2 and now she has the New iPad. Two weeks ago, she turned in her iPhone 4 and picked up the iPhone 5.

What all this means to me is my wife will now spend the money and get the Mini iPad.

At 71 she has become a geek.

I'm content with the new iPad. I prefer it's larger size.
