iPad Mini Could be Available on November 2

By - Source: Geeky Gadgets | B 9 comments

Apple set to continue track record of releasing new products on a Friday.

Following the pending announcement of the iPad Mini on October 23, Apple could be launching the device just a week later on November 2.

According to Geeky Gadget's source who is "close to a major UK retailer", Apple will continue its track record of releasing new products on a Friday, around 10 days after unveiling it during an event.

Apple recently confirmed a media event for next Tuesday, with invitations reading, "We've got a little more to show you". It's widely believed that a new 7.8-inch iPad Mini will be announced on the aforementioned date, with a price reportedly due to be between $250 and $300.

If the November 2 release date is true, the highly coveted holiday shopping season will offer consumers a batch of enticing tablets at competitive prices. Microsoft's Surface, which has an already-sold-out model priced at $499, is due for a release on October 26, while Google also has their $250 Nexus 7 tablet available, with a $99 model purportedly in the offing.

Best Buy, meanwhile, will launch its Insignia Flex tablet on November 11, with a price range rumored to be between $239 and $259.

    Not really sure. Hard to tell in these early years since the the internet, media, PC and phone are all evolving into one single product.

    I actually favor iOS, it's just that my iPod Touch 4G goes really slow, and apps/games constantly crash.

    As a developer (of 30 years) Objective C is the most advanced programming language I've ever used. Sure, it takes a little time to get used to, but the use of embedded blocks and delegates is pretty unique. Java is so 1980's! It's about time Google gave us a mans programming language like C++!

    I wonder if tablet makers and/or Google will pull an "Apple" and sue Apple for copying their smaller tablets and try to get their iPad mini banned.
