iPad mini manufacturing to reach 4 million units per month from September?
When it comes to other details about the iPad mini, DigiTimes only confirms what we’ve already heard over and over - a thinner bezel around the screen would keep size similar to existing 7-inch tablets. Interestingly, its sources claim that Apple is confident it’d have great sales and challenge devices like the Google Nexus 7 even if it prices the compact tablet at the higher range of estimates, $299.
DigiTimes believes that the iPad mini has been circulating in production since June of this year, but in small batches of several hundred thousand a month. Finally, you should take this with a grain of salt, it aligns with earlier rumors, but we’re yet to hear whether Apple is indeed planning to release the iPad mini.

Most likely someone will buy an iPad mini if it exists just like they buy 7 inch tablets. However, it will have a tough time convincing new owners to buy at a higher price for the same stats (which i assume would have to do with their premium pricing)
