Apple announces special event for October 23rd; want to take a small guess what it's for? (hint: iPad mini)

At last, after months and months of rumors, we now have a date when we can expect Apple to introduce the Apple iPad mini; the Cupertino based company is hosting a "by invitation only" event which will feature the tablet that Apple will use to compete with the lower priced Android tablets...

no mate no one was wondering what the ipad was as it wasn't the first tablet so wasnt anything new, its an enlarged iphone thats all. a tablet should be something made specially for the purpose not just the same product in different sizes.

and insecure, well your trying to defend the ipad so showing some insecurity arent you.

So if you saying that its only changing size while calling it as NLARGE iPhone ?? So what bout others ? Samsung , what's so deferent on their products ? Making bigger screen even changing the phone to tablet , tablet to phone ??? LOL .. Note - is it a phone or tablet ?phone should be a phone - one handed friendly. Tablet it should be a tablet. So what's your point to calling it as iPhone ENLARGEMENT ? I'm not trying to defend any .. Just saw your comment and thought to tell this. That's all. Think mate .. What I'm asking u .. It's not apple own to me and androids own to u. We are customers of all ? What we have to do it choose what we need and buy it. No need to insult on any am I wrong ? Also we should know that if there was no iPhone in 2007 then here is no any android and this kinda developed devices . Like this kinda battle even .. With this battle we can have lots of high end smartphones ,, even digital cameras too behind on some smartphone cams? Isn't that ryt buddy ?

samsung galaxy note 10.1 is much more focused and specialised then your oversized ipod touch. the nexus 7 is an excellent little tablet. and surface well they could be massive if marketed and priced right.

and telling me to think, i do that anyway and seen your comments before, apple defending to the point of ignorance.

you gotta stop giving apple credit for everything thats out today, you give apple credit for tablets and now android. even if the iphone weren't ever conceived android would have still appeared. one isnt dependant on the other.

what battle? you mean apple trying to stop competition by tieing there hands, thats not a battle thats running scared because they cant compete. a battle would be bringing new innovative products.

most of your comment is gibberish though so had to work out what the hell you meant

shut up, you cant answer the comment and questions i put to you which shows your a useless troll

to sum up you think its only ok to insult if its aimed at those that dont use apple, you cheer apple trolls on like a sad cheerleader, your as arrogant as they come and mostly your just a whiny ifan who moans when called out for the BS you comment

And still it's going like nothing .. I won't buy it yet cz I cannot afford that much money and I'm hoping to use my current smartphone as long as I can. Cz I never haven't use a phone more than 7 or 8 month. Cz I went to phone by phone .. I gut ma leap to every new mobiles since I got my current phone. Yeah it is .. My current phone is iphone4 and its wow its doing lot for me. Now more than 2 years .. I'm not saying it is the best .. It's just my best .. Cz I'm trying to use it as long as I can. ( I'm looking for better android which I still didn't c ) I like Sony ones.. Htc ones ... U know what just don't bark on any company. Just stay with what u like and what u can buy ... Poor guy ..

Let's all wish and pray for a TAB with Ubuntu on it ... this will end monopoly of everyone ... the biggest copyright troll (SCO UNIX) against LINUX is filing for Chapter 7 already so one bully bites the dust :)

Exact Bucky, I don't see y android users troll iOS articles like they do if they hate apple so much then just ignore the articles. And the iPad did put tablets on the map. No one was doing anything with tablets before the iPad. It launched the tablet craze, and is still the king oh the hill. Followed by kindle, nexus 7. The surface should b nice too.

You know what the iPad mini looks like the galaxy tab 7.7...I wonder what marketing scam apple will use to make the iPad mini seem like the 1st of its kind and make it seem so wonderful lol... Btw if the price is right similar price as the nexus 7 then I may get one xoem xmas

A 7" screened product that will be overhyped, overpriced, and attract the same parents, grandparents, and other brainwashed individuals that buy Beats headphones.

Before The Ipad was introduced to the market everybody called a GIANT IPOD and gave it no chance of selling, 3 years later still dominate the tablet market by its own, now fandroids like usual bashing Apple but we will see Fandroids Apple continue to beating your expectations

actually no one said it wouldn't sell as with apple its the logo that gives it its selling point not the actual device itself. you act as if apple invented the tablet like it was the first of its kind...........it wasnt stop thinking apple started it all

second you aim your comment at android users why? its not just them who are bored with apple giving us deja vu with there ''new'' devices. the tablet market is just beginning. once people get bored with the ipad, once the trend has worn off people will more to the more functional devices that offer so much more then apple does
