Fancy a rumour about an invitation being sent out for a rumoured device on a rumoured date? Fortune has you covered. It claims Apple will send out invites for the launch event for its ‘iPad Mini‘ – a smaller version of its tablet – on 10 October, with the event itself taking place on 17 October, and a (yes, rumoured) on-sale date of 2 November. Sit down for this bombshell: Apple has declined to comment on the speculation. iPad Mini should be popular, but the question for Music Ally is whether the launch is coming too soon for Apple to announce any personal radio (or ‘iRadio’ as we’re fairly sure it won’t be called) service. Negotiations are seemingly proceeding with publishers and labels, but it’s a tight timeframe to conclude deals.
