We already knew that Apple iPad is holding more than 68% market shares of the tablet industry and it makes it the one of the most successful product ever made by the iPad. But with the release of Amazon Kindle Fire and Google Nexus 7, we have seen a slight decline in the market of iPad. The main reason behind it is the price. So, most analysts, leaks and rumors suggest that Apple will also release a budgeted iPad mini to compete with lower end Android Tablets.
When will Apple release iPad mini? A reliable source, iMore told that Apple will unveil iPhone 5 and iPad mini on 12th September. However, earlier today, another famous weblog, AllthingsD has contradicted this news and has told that Apple will release iPad mini in October while iPhone will be released on the rumored date.
According to AllthingsD:
Apple’s next generation iPhone and its so-called “iPad mini” will debut at two separate events this fall, rather than a single one as has been widely speculated, according to several sources. [...]
Only after the next generation iPhone is out the door and on sale will Apple announce the smaller iPad it’s been working on. That device, which is expected to have a display of less than eight inches, will be uncrated at a second special event, which sources said is currently scheduled for October.
So, from the above mentioned words, it is crystal clear that Apple will plan for two different events back to back in two months only. Although, we believe on the two different events but the gap of even less than 30 days doesn’t make a sense. What do you think? Do you want an IPad mini in October.
Update : Apple Media event has been ended and iPhone 5 has been released – here’s iPhone 5 features and Specs.
