Bloomberg says iPad Mini coming in October

The smaller size end of the tablet market will be a crowded and very competitive one this holiday shopping season. This according to Bloomberg which claims inside knowledge of Apple’s plans to launch a smaller format iPad.

The report says the iPad Mini will sport a screen between 7 and 8 inches diagonal and will be launched in October..the Bloomberg prediction for a small iPad to launch in the fall seems to coincide with the other rumours floating around. Apple Insider proposes a 7.85″ screen with a Sharp IGZO high resolution display..iMore predicts a small version of the current iPad ¬†with the same retina screen. Most reports suggest a price between $200 and $300.

If the rumours are accurate the pre-Christmas tablet market could be very interesting..the current iPad , the Microsoft Surface (if it surfaces) and the other 10″ models fighting for the top end with the low end featuring a battle between the rumoured iPad mini, Google Nexus 7, a rumoured new Amazon Kindle fire, Barnes and Noble Nook and a bunch of other 7″ tablets. That kind of competition could force even lower prices..what do you think?
