Apple Sends Out Invite For iPad Mini Event On October 23

The Loop reports that Apple has just sent out invites for the eagerly awaited media event on October 23.

The event will be held at the California Theatre in San Jose and is scheduled to begin at 10:00 AM Pacific or 1:00 PM Eastern.

As you can see below, the tag line on the invitation says “We’ve got a little more to show you“.

Apple is widely expected to unveil the smaller and cheaper, unofficially dubbed iPad mini at the event to compete with cheaper Android based tablets like Google Nexus 7 and Amazon Kindle Fire.

The iPad mini is expected to come with a 7.85-inch display with a narrower side bezel and 1024×768 resolution (same as the iPad 2 and the original iPad), it’s also supposed to be a lot thinner and lighter than full-sized iPad and could be priced at $249 – $299.

Apple is also rumored to launch the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, redesigned iMacs, revised iPad and new Mac minis at the event.

We can’t wait to see what Apple has in store for us.
