The event is overwhelmingly expected to bring a smaller, less expensive version of Apple's iPad. The product would be Apple's first expansion of its tablet line since the iPad's debut in 2010, and its second iPad announcement this year.

Rumors also suggest that Apple may update other products, particularly Macs. Both the MacBook Pro and iMac are rumored to be getting upgraded models, as well as Apple's Mac mini. See CNET's full rundown on that here.

As usual, we'll be using ScribbleLive to bring you live text and photos, blow by blow. We'll start the live blog about an hour before Apple officially kicks off its event, so be sure to come early.

A pint-size iPad on the way?
