Recently, Apple has demonstrated its intentions of expanding its reach to new markets, especially after Tim Cook and his team have finally managed to sign the iPhone deal with China Mobile, the worldâ€™s biggest carrier by the number of subscribers. After China, it seems that Apple is now targeting India, as the American company has decided to relaunch the 8GB version of the discontinued iPhone 4 to help grow market share in India. Now, new reports suggest that Apple is also slashing the price of its 2012 iPad mini, trying to garner good sales in the mid-range tablet market.
India, as well as as China, represent huge business opportunities for Apple, but there are many challenges, as well. Android devices are preferred by these two markets thanks to their low prices. Could Appleâ€™s strategy in lowering the prices of older iOS devices work out or they are still expensive when compared to the Android counterparts?
