Bloomberg Confirms iPad Mini for October Launch

For something that has not yet been seen in public, the iPad Mini is probably the single most talked about device ever. And now even the legitimate business news sites are getting into the act.

Bloomberg now has multiple sources telling them that the new ipad Mini is going to debut next month.

Apple will use screens from AU Optronics and LG Display for a smaller version of the iPad to be released in October, according to four people familiar with the plans.

That’s about all Bloomberg can tell us today, but just for the sake of being told no they also asked the rps for the various rumored parts suppliers for comment, and none were willing to say anything.

While I’m pretty certain that this is a solid rumor, I’m almost looking forward to the possibility it might not be true. Many, many, many bloggers and analysts are focused on the certainty that this device exists and is coming next month.

If it doesn’t then the size and magnitude of the collective error will be the greatest since the housing bubble, when far too many people invested far too much money in over-priced real estate.
