I understand all the rumors of the new iPads being announced on October 22. My question is this: Is there any chance that the new iPads would be available to purchase in-store on October 25? In other words, is the 10 day announcement lead time typical of all Apple products, or are iPads typically announced around the same day that sales start? Reason: We're having a birthday party for two of our kids on the 26th. They will both be getting iPad Mini's. However, I don't want to buy the current model with the same, outdated processor as the iPhone 4s right before the new model comes out. I'm trying to make these as future-proof as possible, so an old, about to be discontinued model isn't appealing.
