Apple estimated to ship 18-20 million iPads in Q4

According to those hearty souls that make up Taiwan's supply chain, Apple is set for a nice jump in the number of Apple iPads it will ship in the fourth quarter; during the October through December period, it is estimated that Apple will ship 18-20 million units of its tablets globally. That is an increase of as much as 42% from the 14.1 million shipped in this year's third quarter...

I don't see why people want so many iPad Airs. The Mini 2 I can understand well enough; it's gotten a huge upgrade, but the Air is mostly unchanged from last years model. And isn't it the trend that everyone wants a smaller tablet?

You know Apple never innovates. All Apple does is copy the android ecosytem since everyone knows android invented the modern day tablet.

It's a crying shame that Apple has to play catch-up to android's existing 64-bit processors standard in tablets, how Apple has to reduce the weight of it's super heavy iPad 4, how Apple struggles to give it's users a 10-hour battery life, and how iOS is really not a bona fide operating system and how users constantly complain about the iOS lag.

With all these problems, it's amazing Apple continues to be in business.

Well things are dire at Apple, but not as bad as you make them out to be. Apple will stay in business, however, as they have a massive cult following that will lick anything with an Apple logo on it.

if you stopped being a troll for a moment, you would realize that now the only difference between the iPad air and the mini is that of screen size and $100. So why is it wrong for people to want a bigger sized tablet for $100 more?

Dexxter, did you go out of your way just to make this handle?

Congrats for 100% of your posts being personal attacks.
