Apple event on September 10 almost certainly not going to include new iPads

By now we're all pretty convinced of a September 10 Apple event to launch the new iPhone 5s and quite possibly the iPhone 5c. But, now a report out of Bloomberg is suggesting that we might be seeing new iPads on that date as well:

"The Cupertino, California-based company plans to introduce new versions of its phone and tablet at a Sept. 10 event, a person familiar with the matter has said"

At this point in time, Apple has four products for a fall release, iPhone, iPod, iPad and Mac, and we'll likely see Apple mix-and-match any combination of the four over two different events in September and October. Last year the iPad launches took place in October, and that'll almost certainly be the case again this year.

There's also the somewhat blasé nature of which the information was presented. The article in question isn't specifically to break the story of new iPads next month, but is in fact focused on a possible retail store opening in Tokyo, Japan. As such, it could be poorly stated, sloppy assumption. What's your call?

Update: Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has "noped" this particular rumor. He's got an excellent track record, so move along...
