Sharp cutting iPad screen production to a minimum as iPad mini sales take over
Sharp has cut the screen production for the full size iPad screen in its Kameyama plant to the minimal levels needed to keep the conveyor belts running, Reuters sources have indicated.

This has been allegedly based on Apple forecasting weaker demand, as more and more people are shifting to buy the cheaper iPad mini with the smaller, less resolute screen.

Officials from Sharp and Apple didn't reply to the report with comments, and Macquarie Research analsyts have estimated iPad shipments to fall nearly 40 percent to about 8 million, but the overall Apple tablet number to break a record thanks to the added boost from the iPad mini.
