With the highly anticipated launch of the iPhone 5 set for September 12th (still to be confirmed by Apple), it was speculated that the iPad Mini would be launched at the same event.
Now the rumour mill is abuzz with a separate launch date for the iPad Mini set for a month after the latest generation iPhone is announced.
As the iPhone 5 is a phenomenon all of its own it would make sense for the iPad Mini to be launched separately and this certainly follows suit with previous iPhone and iPad launches.
If Apple were to follow suit with previous iPad launches then the Mini version wouldn’t be heading our way until next year, however an October launch will make sense for Christmas availability and perhaps another big brother iPad is heading our way next year.
As usual no confirmation is forthcoming from Apple but with some people not wanting to pay out the for the standard size iPad, or those still sitting on the fence thinking the iPad are too big this could be the compromise to get everyone writing to Santa asking for the iPad Mini.
So is the iPad Mini on your wish list? Are you waiting to upgrade your phone until the iPhone 5 is out?
