iPad nano available in October, rumor says

The successful market invasion of a number of small and affordable tablets has prompted Apple to reconsider its tablet positions, a rumor says. Moreover to counter the threat Apple is likely to release a scaled-down version of its iPad tablet dubbed iPad nano.

The expected release date is October 2012, which is the same time Apple plans to update its iMacs and Mac Pro computers as well as Microsoft to release Windows 8. The mini iPad will help the company regain “its dominance in the tablet space” the rumor continues.

Targeting the low-end 299 USD tablets the scaled-down version of the iPad will however be much different from the full version iPad tablet in order for the two products to be better differentiated. For example the mini iPad will come with a smaller 7.85-inch display and will feature 8 GB of flash storage.

The expected price of the smaller iPad tablet will be 299 USD.
