iPad Mini Launch Date Confirmed – October 23rd

It is possible that next Tuesday 23rd October will see the announcement of the long-awaited iPad mini. Just as the shadowy ‘5’ in their September invites hinted very strongly at the new iPhone, so does the statement, “we’ve got a little more to show you” on their new ones. The Apple event will take place in the California Theater in San Jose and is also expected to see the launch of a 13″ Retina display Macbook Pro, a new Mac Mini and possibly new iMacs as well.

iPad Mini Expected Features :

The new iPad mini, expected to have a 7.85-inch screen, will be Apple’s answer to the likes of the Kindle Fire HD and the Google Nexus – the smaller, less expensive tablets that are super portable and available to those even on a tight budget.¬†Although no definite prices have been released if Apple want their iPad mini to be a serious contender against the other tablets then it will have to retail around $249-$299.

With the choice of connectivity and storage, consumers could be looking at a choice of twelve different configurations of the new iPad mini : WiFi, 3G and 4G LTE with 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB storage. Black and white appear to be the only colour options, which is a shame seeing how the iPod touch got a sparkly new makeover last month – although Apple may still surprise us.

The iPad mini will no doubt support the new lightening connector, which is a blow to those with old style accessories, but, if priced correctly, this could be one of Apple’s best ideas and might push them into catering for a market that is unable to afford their more expensive models, therefore making the whole brand accessible to a whole new range of people.
