Last week, it was expected that Apple could distribute invitation for its second fall product event, but the week passed quiescently. Apple’s silence left some daze about its plan to debut a smaller version of iPad this fall. As we explained earlier, the company was facing a problem related to the production of the device and previously, we concerned whether contract manufacturer will meet the demands of the devices around or not.

However, AllThingsD has reportedly stated that Apple is more likely to host an event for the gadget on October 23 this year. The firm has also reported that production could be a main concern for the delays. Interestingly, the event is going to be organised just three days before the hit of Microsoft’s new Tablet into the shops.

Previously, we mentioned why Apple could hold two separate events for iPhone and iPad and the 7-inch Tablet. The company is expected to release eight versions of new iPad Mini that could range from $320 for a base model to $840 for fully loaded device. According to a screenshot leaked by Mobile Geeks, showed off inventory list of iPad Mini models, the 8GB version of the device will cost $320 without cellular radios—users will have to have an additional $120 in order to have cellular models–, while the most impressive model (64 GB) will cost $840.

As the matter is concern with shipments of the device, really it’s very tough for anyone to predict . Recently, a survey conducted in the U.S. revealed that just 18% of users in the country are willing to own 7-inch iPad mini. On the other hand, another survey revealed that 43% of teens (among respondents in survey those were willing to own the device in next six months) were more likely to own the device only if the device will cost $299.

If the inventory list provided by ‘Mobile Geeks’ is true, then definitely the device is little bit costlier than expected (previously). If anyone wants to have base model (8 GB) with cellular connectivity then he/she will have to pay $440.

Indeed, the device is quite expensive compare to some other devices available in the market including Kindle Fire HD, Nook HD and Google’s upcoming Nexus 7 Tablet. Microsoft’s Surface Tablet is also going to debut on October 26 this year. However, the company has not yet declared the price-tag of the devices.

For Apple, it will not be an easy task to contend rivals like Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Google in the 7-inch Tablet segment. Amazon and Google have already proven itself in 7-inch tablet segment and Apple is just entering into the segment. Of course, this time users have more options to opt for, and if Apple delays to release the Tablet, then it will have to pay for such.
