    I'd just like to remind everyone that Apple has never admitted to the existence of anything by Apple resembling the iPad mini, nor have they said they are releasing any such thing.

    Wouldn't it be funny if an announcement was made by Tim Cook in mid-Octoberalong on the lines of:

    "Look, this announcement is going to be short. There has been much speculation in the media about a 7 inch tablet from Apple. I'm here to tell you that we are not going to produce, nor have we ever intended to produce a 7 inch tablet. We have something better, the revolutionary iPhone 5, which you may recall we announced last month..."

    Sorry, I don't mean to rain on anyone's parade. I've [moderator edit: link to personal blog removed] with the best of them too.

    Is this announcement at an event? I highly doubt he would make any kind of announcement just to reveal that they will NOT be making an iPad mini. Apple usually doesn't announce things they aren't going to make, rather upcoming products they are making. Given the leaked parts it is highly likely they will be making an iPad mini so they can gain some customers on the smaller tablet side of the industry. Apple sees how well the nexus 7 is doing despite its 7" screen and apple would be smart if they made a more affordable iPad that is easier to travel with. There's tons of people out there who would prefer the iPad but they want a smaller tablet so with apple releasing a smaller and more affordable tablet they will kill the market.

    Lots of stores are offering the iPhone 5 for sale, most on back order.

    Well, your story is kinda funny but just like Mixologist said, it will never become truth.

    Wouldn't it be funny if they went the other way and announced the iPad massive 70" version :)
