Last Tuesday, Apple sent out an invitation for a media event that is set to take place next week. It is expected that the company will launch a bevy of new products on that day, including the so-called iPad Mini.

The invitations sent to the media people feature the top of Apple’s iconic logo against a background of colors. Below is a tagline saying “We’ve got a little more to show you,” indicating the company’s purported 7-inch tablet.

Apple Media Event in San Jose, California

As posted by The Loop’s Jim Dalrymple, Apple will hold its event at the California Theatre in San Jose, California, at 10 a.m. PT. The venue is definitely a change from the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, wherein the company announced its iPhone 5 and updated iPod lineup.

Prior to this, there were reports that the iPad maker is set to launch 24 new and different tablet configurations. Four models, dubbed the P101, P103, P105, and P107, were detailed in stock-keeping units. The units were also ranked as “good,” “better,” and “best,” each coming with two-color options, probably black and white.

In the inventory, the entry-level P101 model is expected to be the greatest unit at launch. This also suggests that Apple intends to focus on a low barrier to entry for a smaller iPad. There were also speculations that an 8 GB model could cost as much as $249.

It is expected that Apple’s iPad Mini will feature a smaller bezel, as well as a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. This would allow a native iPad 2 application to run on the device without any modifications. It will also sport a front and rear-facing cameras, as well as the Lightning connector that can also be found on iPhone 5 and the latest iPod models.

More Apple Products Coming Your Way

Aside from the rumored iPad Mini, there were also claims that Apple will release other devices like the purported 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Additionally, there were claims that a new iMac will hit stores a day after the event.

Apple’s small desktop computer, the Mac Mini, has seen product constraints at third-party retailers since earlier this month. Dwindling supplies is usually the first sign that a new product is coming. The device needs an Ivy Bridge update that has long been overdue, that’s why a product refresh would be a great welcome.
