RUMOR: Apple to Unveil ‘iPad mini’ at October 23 Event

Apple is expected to announce an iPad mini on October 23, according to a report from AllThingsD. The event will take place at Apple’s Town Hall auditorium.

From AllThingsD:

Apple will hold a special event this month, at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad. People familiar with Apple’s plans tell us that the company will unveil the so-called “iPad mini” on Oct. 23 at an invitation-only event.

That’s a Tuesday, not a Wednesday, so this is a bit of a break with recent tradition. It also happens to be just three days prior to the street date for Microsoft’s new Surface tabletand two days before Apple reports earnings for its latest quarter.

Sources declined to specify where the event is to be held, and I’ve not been able to confirm a location.
