Apple’s smaller iPad may carry a price tag of $299.
Here’s more fuel to fire the ever looming rumors of iPad Mini, Apple’s smaller (and cheaper) tablet device.
Meet the iFamily.
According to production leak gurus Digitimes, Apple has ramped up production on its 7.85-ich iPad for an October launch. The report says the aim is to produce 4 million units per month as the Cupertinos are expecting big sales when the device launches (like with any hyped up Apple product).
As for the price, Digitimes sources claim the shrunken tablet will be pitched at $299, a hundred dollar bill more than competing tablets from Amazon and Google. But this is standard Apple practice, and should not hamper sales. In fact, it might give Amazon’s Kindle Fire and Google’s Nexus 7 a good tough fight on store shelves.
