and LoopInsight report that Apple is planning to hold a media event on Tuesday, October 23 to introduce Apple’s 7.85 inches “iPad mini”.

As AllThingsD reported in August, Apple will hold a special event this month at which it will showcase a new, smaller iPad. People familiar with Apple’s plans tell us that the company will unveil the so-called “iPad mini” on October 23 at an invitation-only event.

That’s a Tuesday, not a Wednesday, so this is a bit of a break with recent tradition. It also happens to be just three days prior to the street date for Microsoft’s new Surface tablet.

The location of the event is unconfirmed, but will most likely be held at the Town Hall auditorium at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California. » Rumor: Apple’s iPad Mini Media Event Scheduled For October 23

A Wall Street analyst told investors that suppliers are frustrated by Apple’s specifications for the 7.85-inch tablet. According to Brian White of Topeka Capital Markets, building the smaller iPad design to respond to rival 7-inch tablets powered by Google’s Android operating system is no walk in the park for suppliers. However, the new iPad will “blow away what competitors are offering in this smaller form-factor tablet market,” he writes. » iPad Mini Suppliers “Frustrated” By Apple’s Product Requirements

The Wall Street Journal reports that Apple has started “mass production of a new tablet computer smaller than the current iPad”.

Apple Inc.’s Asian component suppliers have started mass production of a new tablet computer smaller than the current iPad, people with knowledge of the situation said, as the Silicon Valley company tries to stay competitive against rivals such as Google Inc. GOOG -0.63% and Amazon.com Inc. AMZN -0.56% that are offering smaller, less-expensive alternatives to the iPad.

They got this information from two sources who also said the smaller tablet will have a 7.85-inch liquid-crystal display with a lower resolution compared with the latest iPad model that came out in March. » Apple Has Begun Mass Production Of The iPad Mini
