Apple could be gearing up for a huge launch of the iPad Mini - the rumored smaller version of the iPad.

The Wall Street Journal reports the company has asked its suppliers to make more than 10 million of the devices -- that's double the number Amazon ordered for the Kindle Fire. Apple is said to be planning an October 17 launch event.
