Black Friday survey shows continued demand for Apple iPad mini with Retina display

The Apple iPad mini with Retina display was first made available on November 12th and remained hard to find over the Black Friday 'shopping holiday'. That is based on a survey conducted by Chris Whitmore of Deutsche Bank. Whitmore looked at the supply and demand of various Apple products at 50 Apple Stores and 50 AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, Best Buy, Walmart and Target locations. He also examined some online stores as well...

PA is posting way too many articles stating the obvious.

I get they feeling they secretly giggle & point at the flame bait articles looking forward to all the page clicks they'll get as each separate camp lauds and criticizes the camp of the subject matter.
Apple is the 4th Quarter Titan of the Holidays. It would be news if they didn't beat expectations. Hell, it'd be news even if they beat expectations but only by a little bit.
Back to the story though... Well done Apple. iPads continue to be the tablet to beat. Hope the competition keeps everyone stepping up their game.

Since last week, there's been several flame bait articles. If PA wants $$$ that bad, then that's really sad.

Well everyone seems to be catching on (at least the smarter people). The last few rehashed bait articles didn't get much comment action.

First of all black friday is been over . Second of all what is going on with PA or should I say iPA keep posting these ios articles. Also iPA the black friday sales doesnt change the fact that ios market shares are still down compared to there last year sales and that android still dominates with WP very fast increasing up to ios market shares

Yep because high level phones from one producer are not for every one. But if you compare the web traffic, and the stats from advertaisers things change drastically. Google makes more money through iOS than their own os. That's the real reason why gapps iOS are way better than the android counterparts. That's why no gapps for WP, just because they are irrelevant. Maybe and hopefully the latter will change and they'll give more love.

Nexus 7 and iPad Mini 2 are best tablets of 2013. They both had cons and now they are fixed. Nexus 7 was bulky and fat, now it's sleek and classy. iPad mini had mediocre processor and bad screen, now it's one of the fastest, if not the fastest tablet in the market and has stunning display.

Pretty strange that people doesn't buy the corean copy. Ya ya, all of the no brainer.
