Cape Town – Apple has not yet even acknowledged the existence of the iPad Mini, but pricing and configuration information for the much-rumored tablet is allegedly already appearing in the inventory system of a consumer electronics giant.

The page, in German, lists pricing for various configurations in euros, presumably with Europe's 19% value-added tax already factored into the price. Prices will start at €249 (approximately R2 000) for a Wi-Fi-only 8GB iPad Mini.

Apple is expected to take the wraps off its highly anticipated mini iPad at a 23 October invitation-only event, reported tech blog AllThingsD, citing sources familiar with the company.

The event would come before Microsoft unveils its latest operating system, Windows 8, and its new Surface tablet on 26 October.

Speculation has been swirling for months that Apple was planning a smaller, less expensive version of its popular iPad to take on cheaper competing devices.
