Apple sends out invites for event on October 23
| by Aaron Almeida |
There was speculation that Apple would host an event at the end of October to unveil the highly-anticipated iPad mini. These rumours have just turned out to be true as Apple has sent out media invites for an event slated for October 23 with the caption, ‘We’ve got a little more to show you.’
Possible indication of the iPad mini coming soon
That being said, Apple has been losing its market share in the tablet segment to the likes of Amazon with its Kindle Fire, and Google with its Nexus 7 tablet. For Apple to stay in the run, and cater to a customer base that would want a smaller tablet, Apple would have to launch a 7-inch tablet to cement its throne as the leading tablet manufacturer. The Google Nexus 7 tablet is faring exceedingly well in the market and rumours suggest that a 3G version of the tablet may also be in the works. Apple would need to step into this segment to battle the increasing competition from other manufacturers.
The iPad mini event is likely to have a strong focus on iBooks. It makes sense, as the iPad mini would likely be squarely aimed at those who wish to partake of media on their tablets. The primary purpose of such a smaller tablet would be to act as a medium for Apple’s content, namely iBooks publications and movies.
