iPad Mini Event Invitation Pins Date at October 23 – iPA B

Not one to disappoint as a product launch is leaked over and over, Apple has begun sending out invitations for next week’s iPad mini announcement. The oddly-psychedelic invitation hints at what’s in store with the tagline “We’ve got a little more to show you.” Confirming our iPad mini suspicions, we will undoubtedly find out more about the new tablet on Tuesday… for now, join us after the break for a preview of the event.

At 10am Pacific time (1pm Eastern), Apple employees will take the stage at the California Theatre in San Jose, California to unveil the anticipated iPad mini. iBooks will be a highlight of Apple’s time at the event.

We expect a few surprises coming in the form of additional products, with rumors pointing at the iMac and Mac Mini being refreshed as well as the introduction of a thinner, flash memory-based 13″ MacBook Pro with Retina Display.

iPhone Alley will cover the event live (from only the comfort of our homes, unfortunately) on October 23, so join us as iPad mini is unveiled in our signature signature.

[spoiler]As iPhone Alley makes its transition to a substantially brand new format that aims to cover the entire spectrum of the iOS universe, complete with a vastly unique resurfacing and an expanded team, we will go into overdrive on news in a slightly-more condensed style with just as much exclusively-iPA comedic zing, up until the official relaunch. Note that the format of iPA B(Breakdown) articles have no bearing on the immensely distinct iPhone Alley Spectrum redesign.[/spoiler]
