Almost a third of October has passed and there's still no "iPad mini" announcement from Apple, but that isn't stopping the media from reporting about it -- including word that the junior tablet is likely to come with Wi-Fi only.
While Apple has yet to officially confirm the existence of an "iPad mini," most everyone continues to expect it to debut this month, including The Wall Street Journal, who's now claiming Apple has ordered 10 million of the junior tablets for launch.
It can be exhausting to read Apple-related rumors, especially when so many of them often make wild claims. One news outlet who tends to hold out for the real scoop is The Wall Street Journal, and they're now claiming an "iPad mini" is finally in production.
We're only weeks away from an alleged September 12 event where the iPhone 5 may finally see the limelight. But as that assertion grows more and more likely, the Apple rumor mill is heating up in regards to a new, smaller iPad. According to a couple new reports, not only is the dwarfed tablet named "iPad Mini," but the device will receive its own reveal event in October.
Try to at least act surprised when you read this, but yet another news giant has now "confirmed" that Apple will be hopping into the small tablet space this fall with a junior version of the iPad priced much closer to competing slates like the Nexus 7 or Kindle Fire.
