Apple was expected to invite the press to an invitation-only “iPad mini” event on October 10th, although that date passed like any other and thereby quashed the rumor. Fortunately, a new report from John Paczkowski for All Things Digital has pinpointed the invitation-only “iPad mini” media event for Tuesday, October 23rd, likely taking place at Apple’s Town Hall auditorium on corporate headquarters.
The reason why I’m not skeptical about this rumor is because All Things Digital has a proven track record, accurately pinpointing the iPhone 4S event, new iPad launch event and iPhone 5 event one month ago today. Moreover, Apple has debuted a number of new products at its Town Hall auditorium in the past, including the iPhone 4S and OS X Lion.
UPDATE: Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has provided his “yep” stamp of approval on this rumor. The man is never wrong.
