Apple's October event is tomorrow. Here are some predictions.
- iPad Mini Pricing
While I'd love for it to be $249, I think $299 is likely. The reason? The new iPod Touch starts at $299 for the 32GB model. Why not a 16GB model? Because the smaller iPad will start at $299 for 16GB. The choice will then be bigger screen or higher capacity.
- The Name
John Gruber is betting on iPad Air. Unless he has an inside scoop, I don't think that's likely. The Air name is associated with the Mac. Nor do I think it'll just be called iPad, because that would create confusion. iPad Mini seems to be the most likely, but I like Dan Benjamin's iPad Jr. moniker.
- 13" Retina MacBook Pro
- Thin iMac
