Apple's iPad mini will make up about half of Apple's total iPad shipments in 2013

The fact that Apple's iPad is predicted to steal much of the tablet market share next year is no surprise; however, the fact that the iPad mini may outpace the iPad 2 and the new iPad is certainly interesting.

According to DisplaySearch, which is a global market research and consulting firm, Apple's iPad mini will make up about half of Apple's total iPad shipments in 2013.

Apple expects to ship a total of 100 million iPads in 2013. Out of that total, DisplaySearch predicts that the iPad mini will account for about 50 million of those shipments while the new iPad and the iPad 2 will ship about 40 million and 10 million respectively.

DisplaySearch further predicts that there will be a total of 170 million tablet shipments in 2013 (from all tablet makers, not just Apple). If Apple were to achieve the 100 million shipments, it would have about 60 percent of the market share.

For 2012, despite being released in October, the iPad mini is holding its own concerning sales. In Q3, Apple shipped 1.6 million, and for Q4, the tech giant is asking panel makers to ship over 12 million.

This is an interesting prediction, considering many saw the iPad mini as being far too expensive for a 7-inch tablet (starts at $329) when so many others in the 7-inch arena typically start at $199 (i.e., Google Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD).

The iPad mini was unveiled in late October of this year. It sports a 7.85-inch display, a 1024x768 resolution, dual-core A5 processor, 16GB/32GB/64GB storage options for $329/$429/$529 respectively, a lightning connector and LTE capabilities for an extra $130 to those sticker prices.

iPhone sales are flopping in China?
You mean the TWO MILLION iPhone5 sales of the opening weekend? That's substantially more than a billion dollars in revenue for Apple --- in two days!
What exactly would you define as a flop?

You do know that it's 2012, not 1982 You can't just state random shit on the internet and expect everyone to happily swallow it.

Why not just quote random, unfounded shit. It's what DailyTurd and its rabid anti-apple conforming conformist zealots do best. Or worst.

First iPad mini sales were going to be terrible. Oops they weren't. OK so lets move on and fabricate that the mini has trounced demand for the 4th gen (which of course makes no sense at all and will be shown with actual figures in due course).

So instead move onto alleged single person queues for Chinese iPhone 5 launch. Uh, oh it was on a preorder only system. Ok let's ignore that mistake and move on to iMac won't be available until 2013. Oh, that's wrong too. Um, ok what else is there at the moment for DailyTurd to fabricate inside knowledge of?

Who actually cares about all these speculations, negative ones I mean. I see lots of accusations that Apple users are obsessed with sales figures, which yeah is a bit sad I agree. But what's TRAGIC is how obsessed Apple haters are...
