Apple Issues Invitations for October 23 Media Event

[ Edited ]

So what do you think will be announced at this event?

 

I think a iPad Mini (or whatever it will be called) is an almost certainty based on all the leaked images of it. I think that an iPad Mini with a 7-7.5 inch screen and competively priced, will do a lot of harm for other tablets. But what do you guys think?

 

Personally I think a rumoured revision on the current iPad 3 is hard to believe, especially has there is normally a new iPad released every March or April (which has been the case since its introduction). I expect that the rumoured specs etc on this are indeed a prototype of the next gen iPad which will be out next year. But what do you guys think?

 

I'm hoping for a new iMac. Has I'm planning on getting my first Mac/iMac early next year.

I might buy the mini iPad once it's released depending on the price.

I think it will be a good move by Apple if they introduce a iPad Mini, has not everyone wants a device has large as the normal sized iPad or can afford one.

 

If Apple release a 7-7.5 inch iPad, and the price is competitive, then I think they'll really harm other tablet sales.

An iPad mini definitely makes sense as its the only real gadget they do not yet have. Would there be a need for it though other than the iPhone and iPad?

What other tablets have you guys tried or purchased? I do like the Google one.

I've seen a price circa £160 being mentioned, sounds good if that's a fair estimate.

If thats the case then this is going to put a serious dent in other tablet sales. Definitely makes sense for Apple to do a 7-7.5 inch tablet, has its the only thing they haven't got in their range.

 

I couldn't see myself moving to a 7-7.5 inch tablet when I get a new iPad, has I like the large screen the standard iPad has on it, but for someone who wants a smaller tablet for portabity or perhaps their budget cannot stretch to the price of the standard sized iPad, then the iPad mini (or whatever it will be called) is going to be a really tempting choice.

I think it would make sense because not everyone wants an iPhone or perhaps is happy with a nother manufacturer for example Blackberry. Also the full sized iPad is expensive and I can imagine a lot of people's budgets wouldn't stretch to the asking price of the full sized iPad or some people might find the standard iPad too big from a portability point of view.

 

When I got my first iPad back in 2010, I did try at the time a Blackberry Playbook and a Android tablet, but I just found the iPad more intuitive and a more fluid OS.
