KGI analyst throws hat in ring, says Apple iPad mini coming in September
smaller version outselling the third generation Apple iPad in the company's first fiscal quarter of 2013 with sales of 13 million units vs. 11 million for the larger model. The analyst also predicts that Apple will be "tweaking" the third-gen tablet to address what he calls "thermal issues" and trying to reduce costs. These changes will be invisable to users unlike earlier reports from DigiTimes that Apple would be switching to a thinner IGZO display with its larger tablet during this time period.
Kuo sees big things happening for Apple during the Cupertino firm's fiscal first quarter. More specifically he sees 55 million units of the Apple iPhone sold thanks to the new model, and 24 million Apple iPads sold thanks to the new mini version. While you can never tell how investors will react to news, figures like those should be able to get Apple's equity moving higher again.
