    iPad Mini So Popular it Could Become the Main iPad


    According to a report on CNET today, the iPad mini is proving to be so popular that it could soon be the main iPad. This view comes via NPD DisplaySearch, who say that the iPad mini could be about to “eclipse” the full-sized Retina iPad. CNET says that Apple had originally expected to sell 6 million iPad minis, but DisplaySearch analyst David Hsieh says that this is looking to be a very low forecast, with Apple now asking display panel makers to ship more than 12 million displays in the fourth quarter, specifically for the iPad mini. In a response to an email question from CNET, Hsieh said that the iPad mini is actually selling better than the fourth-gen full-size Retina iPad: “It seems people especially like the size…lighter, slimmer and easier to carry.”



    CNET goes on to say that according to DisplaySearch, by 2013, the iPad mini could make up half of all iPad shipments.

    Of course. And when it gets the retina and beefed up insides, it will be the number 1 tablet in the World!

    I suspect this is because a lot of people just bought the third-gen iPad and aren't ready to upgrade yet, rather than a lot of iPad owners migrating to the Mini (though I'm sure some have).
    You had your entire life to prepare for today.

    ...and to think that about 6 months ago...people were saying that the iPad mini wasn't ever going to happen! How about that it's here and here with such popularity!

    I absolutely love my iPad mini, and I'm glad it turned out to be so popular.. hopefully the popularity will mean Apple wont kill it off anytime soon.

    Nope, they will just create thousands of updated versions of it just like the standard iPad lol.

    I'm surprised at that if its true. Am I the only one that values screen real estate? I must be missing the benefit of the additional portability and lighter weight. I'm pretty happy with my iPad 2 as far as lightness and portability are concerned. Just like cell phones, I just don't get. Must be me

    I don't think you need to feel threatened in anyway....Apple will keep the larger screen around....and I'll sell you my 3 gen once the retina mini comes out.
