(Newser) – Word has it a smaller iPad will debut at an Apple event on Oct. 23—though, to be fair, word has previously been wrong. This time, however, AllThingsD sounds pretty sure about it. The invite-only event, set for three days before Microsoft's Surface tablet hits stores, will take place on a Tuesday, unlike most Apple launches, which occur on Wednesdays. The so-called "iPad mini" will have a 7.85-inch liquid crystal display, a smaller Lightning connector, and is likely to be thinner than the regular iPad, according to the report. The Atlantic Wire, which has a link to photos, notes that it may be WiFi-only.

I don't want the pad or the mini pad, I'm waiting for the tampon.
