AllThingsD says that Apple plans to unveil a new mini iPad in October, following the rumored introduction of a new iPhone in September, adding weight to rumors of a smaller iPad that have piled up in recent months — particularly following Google's introduction of it's 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet. ATD says that "several sources" confirmed the separate events, which gives a clearer idea of Apple's timeline — previous rumors pegged a new iPad mini debut anywhere between September and December. If earlier rumors from Bloomberg and the Wall Street Journal are true, Apple will unveil a new iPad with a screen-size under 8 inches. Apple declined to comment on this report.
