Press invitations for an iPad Mini (AAPL) event will be sent out on Oct. 10, according to a "major Apple investor" speaking to CNNMoney and claiming he heard the news from "multiple sources." AllThingsD reported in August that the Mini would be launched in October. The device is expected to sport a 7.85" display, and be thinner than the regular iPad thanks to its use of new touchscreen tech.
