iPad Mini release date and configurations rumours

Apple has sent out an invite for an event on October 23. The invite states “we’ve got a little more to show you” – which we’re assuming refers to the iPad Mini.As rumours hot up about a potential iPad Mini (or iPad nano, if you prefer) as the Amazon Kindle Fire, Google Nexus 7 and Nook HD steal the budget tablet show.


The iPad Mini will come in 16 different memory and wireless configurations, according to an inventory system screenshot obtained by MobileGeeks. The screen capture allegedly comes from the internal inventory system of Media Market, Europe’s largest electronics retailer.

As the name suggests, iPad mini will be sporting a screen smaller than the stock 9.7-inch display found on the first three Apple tablets. New iPad Mini would come with a 7.85-inch display – a tad bigger than the 7-inch screen found on the Kindle Fire and Nexus 7.

Some unknown source, claiming the iPad Mini features a body which is just 7.2mm thick and would come with 3G functionality. However UK newspaper The Guardian suggests the iPad Nano will be Wi-Fi only, with Apple ditching the 3G/4G support we’ve seen in the new iPad.

A leaked screenshot which made its way onto MobileGeeks apparently reveals more iPad Mini features, suggesting the tablet will come in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions, with the option of Wi-Fi only and 3G/4G also thrown into the mix.
