iPad Mini unveiling expected at October 23 event

Apple sends out invites saying "We've got a little more to show you"

The iPad Mini unveiling is likely just a week away. As reported by CNET, Apple has sent out invitations to the press for an October 23 press event in San Jose along with the tagline, "We've got a little more to show you."

After months of rumors, an iPad Mini debut is assumed to be in the cards at the event. However, 9to5Mac reports that a new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and new Mac Minis will also be announced at the show.

The scaled down tablet has been one of the worst kept secrets in tech, with reports not just spilling the specs, but also indicating Apple is planning to make 10 million of the devices this year. The tablet will supposedly sport a 7.85-inch screen and a lower price point than its full-size counterpart to cut into competitors' price advantages. Currently, the least expensive configuration of the iPad rings up at $499, while Google's Nexus 7 tablet starts at $199, and Amazon's entry-level Kindle Fire retails for $159.
