MINYANVILLE ORIGINAL Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) will begin selling the iPhone 5 in 22 more countries tomorrow. However, now that Apple has released its iPhone 5, investors and Apple enthusiasts will soon begin looking to Apple's next product launch. Many speculate this will be the "iPad Mini."

Rumors have been swirling around about the alleged tablet. If Apples does launch a smaller iPad, that will allow it to compete with the 7-inch tablets offered by Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS), and Google (NASDAQ:GOOG).

What Apple watchers seem fairly confident about is a launch sometime before the end of this year, though Apple has not confirmed this. At the end of last month, AllThingsD published an article confidently stating that the iPad Mini will debut in October according to "several sources." The article highlighted a post from the blog Daring Fireball, which reasoned that Apple would not launch the iPad Mini at the same time as the iPhone 5 and risk diluting the impact of either device. This thinking has been picked up by many blogs and news sites, which also state that the tablet will launch in October.

Below are other rumors about the iPad Mini that have surfaced as a result of postings of supposed photos and videos of the tablet. None of rumors should be taken as fact, though, as Apple has not even officially announced an iPad Mini, and the name itself has been created by the media.

Size and Appearance

9To5Mac.com posted alleged mockups of an iPad Mini on August 14 of this year, showing a device that looked like a larger iPod touch. However, since then, the Chinese site Bolopad.com posted pictures of an iPad Mini on September 17, and these images have received more attention. The site describes the screen as being 7.85 inches.
