Macotakara, a Japanese blog, has reported that the seven-inch tablet offering of Apple has been christened the iPad Mini.

The name, which has been making rounds over the net in recent months, will supposedly become the official name of the upcoming device. The blog site cited information from a source in Asia and the 7.85-inch iPad Mini will feature the familiar logo of the iPad at the back.

Although the accuracy of the report remains to be seen, iPad Mini was the name given by industry watchers when reports on the upcoming device started to emerge.

However the company may still come out with a surprise when the device is finally unveiled in the same way that industry watchers expected the third model of the iPad would be called the iPad 3. Instead Apple surprised everyone by simply calling the device as the new iPad.

An All Things D report indicated that the iPad Mini will be released by Apple by October. The same site also indicated that the company will schedule two events to launch its latest devices, the iPad Mini and the iPhone 5, which will reportedly be launched within the month.

These reports have contradicted earlier reports that hinted at a September 12 release for the two devices. However scheduling two separate launch events for the iPad Mini and the iPhone 5 appears sensible since it will allow the two devices to stand out once they are unveiled by Apple.

Even as majority of industry watchers are focusing on the iPad Mini and the iPhone 5, the company will reportedly offer the latest version of the iPod soon.

The new iPod Nano will reportedly feature Wi-Fi connectivity as well as support for the iTunes service of the company. Speculations have emerged hinting at the possibility that the upcoming refresh of the iPod Touch will feature support for NFC technology or near field communication technology.

Apple enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to before the end of the year although much of the focus has been on the iPad Mini and the latest version of the iPhone.
