Apple iPad Mini coming this fall?
Poor Microsoft and Google. While the tech giants are finally making some waves with the forthcoming Surface and Nexus 7, respectively, Apple could be set to overshadow them this year with its own big tablet news.
A report by Bloomberg says the company of the late Steve Jobs is gearing up to launch a smaller and cheaper iPad by the end of the year. The "iPad Mini" could be revealed by October, according to Bloomberg's totally anonymous sources.
The report says the new model will have a seven-to-eight-inch screen. You know, less bulky than today's iPad but still kind of awkward to use.
