iPad Mini launch date could be in October

Another day, another iPad Mini rumour fired out of the iRumour mill – this time minus the Retina Display

Rumours of an iPad Mini are continuing to rain down on us, with the the latest titbit of information arriving courtesy of Bloomberg, whose sources with 'knowledge of the plans' report of an iPad with a screen between 7-8in.

This falls nicely in line with the recent speculation of an iPad Mini with a thinner 7.85in Sharp-made display, although Bloomberg's sources contradict previous rumours of a Retina Display, claiming that Apple wants to keep prices competitive.

And with the likes of the impressive Google Nexus 7 (reviewed here) which offers a HD IPS display, quad-core power and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean for a mere £160, Apple's mystery mini iPad will need to have an equally wallet-friendly pricetag to boot.
