Cheaper iPad mini right in Apple's eye, says analyst

 

According to KGI Securities analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple could also launch another - much cheaper - iPad mini, one within the $199-$249 price range. If Kuo's prediction is spot on, many will see their own wishes and dreams fulfilled. Truth be told, although the iPad mini costs $329, customers are still torn between two lovers, considering that many Android tablets are priced below $300. "Prior to iPad mini 2 launch, Apple might roll out a more affordable iPad mini to compete with Android products," says Kuo.

"To cut costs, Apple might push for lower component prices, use a more advanced process to produce the A5 processor, simplify metal casing production, remove the rear camera, cut storage to 8GB and find more component suppliers to lower costs. We think this cheaper iPad mini retail for US$199~249." In addition to the purported cheaper iPad mini, an iPad mini 2 with a Retina display is also rumored to be in the works, as well as a cheaper iPhone. Expect more rumors though as Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference approaches.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
