Reuters reaffirms reports of October 23 Apple event

Friday morning, a report surfaced claiming that Apple was planning to hold a media event on October 23 to announce the long-rumored iPad mini. But given that we heard a similar story for the 17th, we remained skeptical.

Then later that day, the well-connected Jim Dalrymple gave his “yep” of approval on the date, further confirming it. But if that’s not enough proof for you, a major news outlet has just added its weight by backing the story…

Reuters reports:

“Apple Inc will host an event on October 23 where it is expected to unveil a smaller iPad that will take on the less expensive devices offered by Amazon.com Inc and Google Inc, a source familiar with the matter said on Friday…

…The consumer device company is gearing up to unveil a new product at a major October 23 event, said the source, who declined to be named, only days before Microsoft Corp unveils Windows 8 and its new Surface tablet on October 26.”

Obviously, this is all “technically” speculation at this point. Apple hasn’t officially said anything regarding an iPad mini or a late-October media event yet. But between AllThingsD, Dalrymple and now Reuters, we like the odds.

The iPad mini is said to house a 7.85-inch display, slim profile, and a price tag under $300.
