If you're reading this site, or if you're just a tech enthusiast, you're well aware of one thing: Apple is terrible at keeping a secret. Honestly, the company keeps things under wraps with all the tact of a junior-high schooler. But according to some Apple employees, the supply chain holds every bit of the blame.
In what is certainly a ritual with each Apple event, the California Theatre in San Jose has been getting ready for its moment in the spotlight on Tuesday morning -- although it's not quite the flash and glitz of Moscone West.
So have you heard any good rumors lately? We have. It seems like the rumor mill is on the cusp of being vindicated about the iPad mini as at long last Apple gives the technorati what they've been begging for. Will there be a market for it? Oh, we think a lighter priced smaller tablet might just be stuffing a few stockings this holiday season.
We're just days away from October 23, a day when every tech-head in the universe is expecting Apple to announce the new, oft-rumored iPad Mini. Of course, new iOS gadgets means more pressure on the wallet. But if you're looking to trade in an iPod or iPad for the iPad's little cousin, NextWorth has a little bonus for you.
Now that Apple has sent out its official invites for an October 23 event, we're fairly confident the iPad Mini is on its way. But Cupertino isn't likely to leave the stage without a few other announcements, and according to sources, new iMac units are on the menu.
We don't have long to wait to find out all the juicy details about Apple's next best-selling product, but while we're here, let's examine the current iOS lineup to see where the rumored iPad Mini will fall in storage specs, weight, and price.
Invites went out today for the already much-anticipated October 23 event, and we can't wait to see what Apple has to show -- the general consensus is that this is the iPad Mini, although the event invitation doesn't say. We'll bring you all the details live as they happen, October 23 at 10am Pacific.
With the potential iPad mini rumor still hot and fresh and percolating out there, we expect next week will be a hot week of leaks, "leaks," and speculation from unnamed sources. Heck, we even have a little of that this week. Meanwhile, other tablets are out there, breaking even, and we've got some reviews and some one on one comparisons. So let's go see what happened this week.
Just as iPad mini fans are getting over the fact that Apple didn't send invites to a media event on October 10 comes word that the junior tablet will actually makes it premiere on Tuesday, October 23 instead.
Now that the rumored October 10 date for Apple to send media invites for an "iPad mini" event later this month has passed, we'll turn our attention to a new survey that reveals consumers may not be that interested anyway.
