Apple will delay the launch of its high resolution iPad mini with Retina display or it will roll out a limited number of these sharper tablets due to supply constraints, says internal sources. Non-Retina iPad mini can be launched this month.
Apple's much talked about product in these days is its forthcoming sharper Retina iPad mini tablets. But a bad news is here for those Apple lovers who are anxiously waiting for this high resolution tablet. Internal Apple sources belong to its supply chain claims that Apple will be unable to globally launch the new iPad mini Retina version this month along with other updated iPad models. But Apple can launch a non-Retina model this month with other new iPad models.
In fact, the Cupertino, Calif-based Apple can delay the launch. And if it will launch this high resolution Retina iPad mini this year, it will come in a limited number. So the bad side for Apple is that it can miss the holiday shopping season of this year. Rival Google and Amazon can take the sales lead as both have already launched their sharper tablets in the market.
Apple is forced to launch its high resolution retina tablets this month among other updated iPad versions to bolster its sales. Many tech industry analysts believe that if Apple will not launch Retina iPad mini now, its rivals will win.
Frank Gillett, an analyst with Forrester, said, "If they don't put in retina ... there will be howls," according to Reuters. But Apple has declined to comment on any product launch and its internal supply sources also want to remain unnamed.
