    The much-awaited Retina display iPad Mini has finally been launched and early benchmarks show it’s quite the best, being five times more powerful than the first-generation iPad Mini. Now, according to a market forecast from KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the iPad Mini 2 shipments are going to increase in the coming months, seriously contributing to the overall iPad shipments.

    According to Ming-Chi Kuo’s research note issued to investors, the combined iPad Air and iPad mini sales will reach a new record number of 23.1 million shipped units for the fourth quarter of 2013. The analyst said:

    Apple is expected to register an increase of 102 percent quarter-over-quarter in iPad with Retina display shipments in Q1 of 2014, with a total of 4.5 million units. Shipments of larger iPad models are said to fall from 10.5 million units in Q4 to 6 million units in the first quarter of 2014.

    What’s curious is that Kuo believes there’s still a lot of potential for the non-Retina iPad mini, as Kuo forecasts a shipping estimate of 8.5 million in the December quarter and only 1.7 million for the iPad 2.
