Didn't all the rumor sites say the event was going to be on Oct 17th and the invites sent out Oct 10th?

I think the key word here is "rumor". I guess the insiders can't be spot on every time. i'm not an expert or anything but i feel that it will be released in time for the holiday season without a doubt.

You're about as much an expert as everyone else. Most everyone is doing a combination of analyzing past history and educated guesses.
OP, if someone like Walt Mossberg talked about an upcoming ipad mini event, that'd be one thing. Otherwise, it's pure speculation on their parts.

Could be they saw the invitation and launch event dates leaked and decided to change them just to confuse the rumour mill in order to render the whole rumour industry a bit less accurate.

That rumour turned out to be BS. For all we know, the iPad Mini rumour was started by Apple for the purpose of exposing leaks along their supply chain, just like they did five or so years ago with the Garageband Breakout Box/Audio Interface.

Theres always the possibility Apple changed its mind last minute. With the iPhone being in such high demand, new quality control issues slowing production, the negativity towards maps and the whole "scuffgate" stuff then maybe releasing a black aluminum iPad Mini would just give them more problems than they need right now so they'll just coincide the release for March along with the iPad 4

Personally, Im dying to know if the Mini or iPad 3 MarkII are for real or not because I've outgrown my 16GB iPad 2 and already have a buyer lined up so I can get ANYTHING in 32GB.

There wasn't really a strong consensus about the October 17th date from multiple sources like there was for the Sept 12th date for the iPhone event.

So the question is - what is the next date we should look for! :D

(And please don't say March :()

It's hilarious how wrong you are.
Do you have an iPad mini? Has Apple announced it? The FACT of the matter is, at this point the iPad mini is a rumor. Now you can scream and shout all day how wrong you think I am, but facts are facts.

children.

You're right.
You're always gonna be right.
There is no other way.
Even after the mini is announced and released and sold I bet you will say that at this specific moment the iPad mini was only a rumor, so you were always right.
What people like you are looking for is always being right, even if they know to be wrong and even if they are aware of the fun they make of themselves.

And you call others children.

Fact: Dalrymple "yep"-ed it. It's coming oct 23. Invites Oct 16. Dalrymple rubs shoulders with Schiller. His track record is literally 100%.

So, it's a rumor you believe. It's still a rumor. Have a nice day.

Yawn. I'm so sorry. I deal in facts. I am quite frequently wrong, when I give an opinion. If I was saying "i don't think Apple will ever release an iPad of any other size" - I would most likely be wrong. When I say that today, the iPad mini is a rumor- that my friend is the gospel truth. Look up fact, then look up opinion. Good luck.

hint: you have NO idea what "people like me" think. One of the reasons you are so often wrong is you make assumptions about things and people you know nothing about.
