    According to a very sketchy report from Philip Elmer-DeWitt at Apple 2.0, Apple could be sending out invitations to the launch event for the iPad mini on October 10. DeWitt notes that it's a "rumor we have no reason to believe" except that it came from a major Apple investor.
    Given Apple's history, invitations going out on October 10 would suggest that the event would be held in the middle of the following week.

    It was reported in August by The Loop's Jim Dalrymple and AllThingsD that Apple was planning an iPad mini introduction for October.

    Would make sense as to why they did not release iTunes and the new iPods yet. They did not want the iPhone 5 to take away from the iPad mini and vice-versa.

    Unlikely, but who knows! I would be happy with a spec bump and a slimmer design w/o CD-ROM drive.

    There is a huge market for small tablets out there which Apple has been ignoring. They are joining the party pretty late actually.

    Wouldn't it be illegal for anyone at Apple to share this sort of information with a "major Apple investor." Both the investor and the person who told him could wind up in jail for insider trading couldn't they?

    Not necessarily, we only saw so many iPhone 5 leaks due to the mass production that was required. An iPad mini wouldn't sell nearly that many, and would be closer to the iPod touch in production. We've seen about as many leaks for the iPad mini as we did the new touch.

    That's only for stock trading. He may of broke Apple's NDA, which is a different thing entirely.
