Tablet news: Apple sends iPad mini event invites, Microsoft Surface goes on sale
Mashable shared its press invite today for Apple's next reveal, with the words "We've got a little more to show you" all but confirming the expected announcement of an 'iPad mini.'
The event will be held next Tuesday, Oct. 23, in San Jose, Calif. at 10am PT.
The much-rumored iPad Mini is expected to have a 7.85-inch display (versus the iPad 3rd gen's 9.7-inch screen) an A5 processor and 512MB of RAM, but details of specification (and price, and indeed confirmation of the existance of an actual product) won't be known until - or indeed if - it is announced next week. Until then, we'll let the rumor mill go into overdrive.
Away from the world of Apple rumors, Microsoft started taking pre-orders for its very real Surface tablet today, starting at $499 for the 32 GB version -- without the touch cover keyboard available for another $119.99. At 10.6 inches, the Surface will make a standard iPad look mini, but it doesn't challenge Apple's flagship tablet in terms of screen resolution (1366 x768), connectivity (Wi-Fi only) or camera capabilities (Surface has two front- and rear-facing 720p HD cameras).
