iPad Mini might hit online and in stores Nov. 2

The device itself is really nothing more than an (highly) educated guess, but reports are pointing to a Nov. 2 public launch for Apple's iPad Mini.
According to a tweet from 9to5Mac, folks at the site have heard "whispers" that the first Friday of November will see the launch of the 7.85-inch slate.
The tweet noted that nothing is confirmed, though the date "makes sense."
The timing falls in line with previous Apple product launches, which come on a Friday one week after a device announcement.

Counting the days

Press invites for an Oct. 23 event went out Tuesday, meaning the days are closing in until Apple introduces its upcoming tab.
TechRadar previously pegged November as the release month for the Mini, back in a time when reports still suggested the tablet would launch side-by-side with the iPhone 5.
Apple announced the newest iPhone Wednesday, Sept. 12, and launched the 4-inch phone 10 days later on Friday, Sept. 21.
The device sold out within an hour of orders opening online and if Apple holds true to a rumored price point of between $249 (UK£154, AU$240) and $350 (UK£216, AU$337), a similar fate could befall the imminent iPad Mini.
