According to reports, Apple is getting ready to send invitations to the launch of the iPad mini on October 10.
Citing a “major Apple investor,” Fortune’s Philip Elmer-DeWitt writes that the information could hint at an October 17th keynote.
The site reports:
“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.
What our source adds is the specificity of a date: The press, he says, can expect invitations to go out on Oct. 10.”
A video of the mini tablet was posted online Friday by Japanese blog MacOtakara.
