Although the iPhone 5 has been an absolutely huge product release, Apple (AAPL) isn’t done just yet. Fortune cites an unnamed “major” Apple investor who has heard from “multiple sources” that the company will send out invites for its iPad mini event on October 10th, which likely means Apple will unveil its new tablet on October 17th and will then launch it in early November. The iPad mini is rumored to feature a 7.85-inch screen and feature thinner side bezels that will allow for a wider display than many similarly-sized tablets.
