NEW YORK (AP) - Is there an iPad mini in the works? Apple has sent out invites to reporters for an event next Tuesday in San Jose, Calif.
While the company will only say "We've got a little more to show you," analysts have said for months that Apple is developing a smaller iPad.
The tablet is thought to be about half the size of the regular iPad and to start at $249 or $299. The regular iPad starts at $499.
Reports suggest that the smaller iPad would have a screen that's 7.8 inches on the diagonal, a bit larger than the Kindle Fire or Google's Nexus.
Apple usually starts selling a new phone or iPad a week or two after announcing it. But if it sees a new iPad as a minor product update, it could start selling it right after the announcement.
