Apple looks to iPad Mini, iPhone 5 to deliver 'exciting' September?

Get ready for an "exciting" September from Apple.

Topeka Capital Markets analyst Brian White said today, according to Apple blog AppleInsider, that the Cupertino, Calif.-based company is preparing an "exciting" September that will see the launch of its next-generation iPhone and the iPad Mini.

According to AppleInsider, White based his predictions on discussions he's had with "local contacts" in Apple's supply chain in Taipei. He didn't provide any concrete details on what the devices might look like or components they might come with.

Speculation abounds over when Apple might finally launch the iPhone 5 and the long-rumored iPad Mini. Conventional wisdom puts the iPhone 5 launch date at October. The latest word on the iPad Mini's launch date has been narrowed only to the second half of 2012.

However, at this point, there's no telling for sure that either product exists, so any speculation on a release date should be taken with the proverbial grain of salt. Hopefully we'll learn a bit more about Apple's product plans next week at the Worldwide Developers Conference.

CNET has contacted Apple for comment on White's statements. We will update this story when we have more information.
