Sharp cutting iPad screen production to a minimum as iPad mini sales take over
posted by Daniel P. / Jan 18, 2013, 5:18 AM
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.

This is why I doubt that Apple will release a retina iPad mini with A6 processor at $329 this spring. Who is going to pony up $500 for the 9.7" when the mini is more popular? A retina mini could even hurt their iPhone business.

Ludicrous!!! People don't want small, cheap tablets! I know this for a fact, some guy said so one time.
