Cupertino, Calif. – Speculation continues to run rampant about a media event Apple has scheduled for next Tuesday to unveil what many believe will be a miniature version of its popular iPad tablet computer.
The company on Tuesday sent out press invitations that showed the top of its iconic white Apple logo against a colorful backdrop, with the words, “We’ve got a little more to show you.”
The device, already dubbed by most media outlets as the “iPad Mini,” is widely expected to be priced in the $200-$250 range, putting it head-to-head with smaller tablets such as Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7. Some analysts believe the company is primed to introduce other new products, as well.
“We believe Apple will unveil [the] iPad Mini on 10/23 along with a 13-inch Retina Macbook,” wrote Jefferies analyst Peter Misek in a research note. “We [also] believe there is a chance a new iTunes is unveiled with streaming music and Facebook integration.”
