Apple iPad Mini slated for October unveiling: report(Read article summary)
The iPad Mini will make its debut later this month, according to one reporter. But what will Apple's new tablet look like?
The launch of the Apple iPad Mini may be less than two weeks away.
According to John Paczkowski of All Things D, on Oct. 23, Apple will unveil its new pint-sized tablet at an "intimate affair held close to home" – a decided contrast from the full-on bash that marked the launch of the iPhone 5.
Apple has kept the specs on its new tablet under wraps, but the general consensus says the Mini will ship with a 7.85-inch display (measured diagonally, corner to corner), smaller than the 9.7-inch display on the new iPad, and more or less the same size as the Amazon Kindle Fire.
A "retina display" seems unlikely; the device may, however, get the new Lightning dock connector.
