As we noted a couple weeks back, Apple is revving up for an event tomorrow that will reportedly revolve around some shiny, new iPad models. Both Bloomberg and the The Wall Street Journal cite sources within the company who say that Apple CEO Tim Cook will unveil a new iPad Mini with Retina Display and a thinner full-size iPad Tuesday in San Francisco. If successful, the two prospective tablets could help reinvigorate Apple's growth. Even though the iPad is Apple's second best selling product after the iPhone, it still has still dominated the market. The company's tablet market share shrank to 32% during the second quarter this year. It faces continuing competition from manufacturers, including Samsung, Lenovo, and Acer, which offer lower-priced tablets.
Apple declined to comment ahead of the event to both Bloomberg and the Journal. But, we're not expecting too many surprises. Check back with us tomorrow for coverage of the event. (Bloomberg)
