Apple iPad Mini 'To Be Unveiled In Two Weeks'
Eagerly awaited Kindle Fire rival coming very soon, it is reported...
Apple is reported to be preparing to launch its keenly awaited iPad Mini in just two weeks' time - with 17 October being predicted as the date it will be unveiled.
And Forbes claims that the device - which is thought to be aimed as a rival to the Kindle Fire - will go on sale another two weeks after that.
A "major Apple investor" is claimed to have told Forbes that a press conference is being set up to launch the device on that date.
It is expected to feature a 7.85-inch screen with a housing made from carbon fibre-reinforced plastic.
Trusted Reviews has predicted a price tag of around £200 for the scaled-down tablet.
Invites are expected to be sent out for the launch around 10 October, with Apple's typically tight timing.
Apple is currently riding high on big sales of its new iPhone 5.
