Apple is said to be all set to unveil a smaller version of its iPad Mini.
According to reliable sources, press invites to the iPad Mini launch event would go out on October 10 for the event scheduled for October 17. The device is expected to go on sale on November 2.
There are reports that Apple will use screens from AU Optronics and LG Display for a smaller version of the iPad. The device is rumoured to measure 7.85 inches diagonally. Current iPads measure 9.7 inches.
Smaller iPad is expected to help Apple fend off competition from the smaller and cheaper tablets from companies like Amazon Inc.
