After what seems like months of leaks and rumors, the day has come for Apple to unveil the iPad Mini. While they have yet to leak any details, here’s an idea of what they’ll most likely reveal during today’s event. The screen is not expected to have a retina display but should be 7.85 inches, making it almost two inches smaller than the full-sized iPad but larger than its competitors, the Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. It’s be more similar in power to an iPad 2, rather than the new iPad. The verdict is split on whether or not there will be Minis with 3G or LTE capabilities, but it’s safe to say storage will be at least 8 GB and possibly all the way up to 64 GB. Predictions are again split on the cost, but it’ll be either $250 or even as much as $329 for the entry-level model when it hits the market, probably on November 2.
