We expect an iPad Mini 2 announcement sometime in October and as the clock ticks, we get more and more leaks confirming the rumors. Chinese site DoNews has posted pictures of a champagne color ipad 2 with a TouchID sensor.
Nothing in these photos is too far fetched and we believe them to be authentic but I have to remind everyone that nothing can be confirmed in the world of Apple until Tim Cook holds it in his arms and proclaims it law. These could be fake or prototypes but they could also be the real thing.
We expect Google to release the next Nexus phone (possibly called the Nexus 5) October 14 and typically these companies tend to one up each other so expect the Apple event sometime after this date (possibly as early as October 15).
