Fortune: “iPad mini” media invitations going out October 10th, event rumoured to happen on 17th

Now that the iPhone 5 has widely been released and purchased, the next focus of Apple rumours are the “iPad mini.” Apple has yet to announce plans to make a tablet with a reduced screen size but the plethora of leaks all lead towards a screen size of 7.85-inches, with it being announced sometime late October.

Philip Elmer-DeWitt over a Fortune Magazine has chimed in today stating that a “major Apple investor” has heard from “multiple sources” that the media can expect to have an invitation in their inboxes on October 10th, potentially followed by a media event on Wednesday, October 17th, then availability hitting retailers Friday, November 2nd.

Apple declined to comment on the rumour.
