After hearing lot’s of rumors about the iPad Mini, it seems that the day is finally decided. Earlier it was rumored that iPad Mini will be launching on 10th October, but that was a false rumor. It’s already two days passed 10th October and no report about the iPad Mini yet.
Today a report from Wall Street Journal says, Apple is going to announce the iPad Mini at Media event on 23rd of October which will be on Tuesday. Apple is not going to held the press event at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where the iPhone 5 and iPad’s were introduced earlier, instead Apple is going held it at Town Hall Auditorium on its Cupertino, California headquarters.
John Paczkowski of AllThingD reported that, this Media Event is likely going to be invitation based only. This report from John gets a positive comment from Jim Dalrymple of The Loop saying ‘Yep’.
Since the report is from well know and trusted source we can say that iPad Mini is inevitable and 23rd October itself seems to be the date.
Based on reports and leaks, iPad Mini is going to be smaller variant of iPad 2. It will be packed with dual-core A5 CPU, similar cameras like iPad 2 and a 7.85-inch screen with 1024×768 resolution.
iPad Mini will directly land as tough fight to Google’s Nexus 7 Tablet and Amazon Kindle Fire HD, which are among the best entry level tablets.
The price is the main factor on which iPad Mini success is based on. Apple should keep the price as low as $250 to gain customers attention. Or else iPad Mini will be a fail product from Apple.
