Oh say it ain’t so! Actually, it doesn’t really affect Apple in general if iPad Mini does in fact get delayed. They haven’t announced the product or sent invites. I’m saying this because reports are coming out the device’s launch might be a little delayed.
Via Macrumors: “Along with the latest market rumors indicating that Apple is likely to unveil the much speculated iPad mini on October 17, sources in Apple’s supply chain in Taiwan are also indicating that shipments of the iPad mini tablets are not smooth at the moment due to low yield rates at chassis makers.
Case makers Foxconn Electronics, Catcher Technology and Ri-Teng Computer Accessory are responsible for production of the iPad mini chassis, the sources indicated. Ri-Teng is an associate company of Pegatron.”
It doesn’t look like launch would be completely delayed, but initial stock might be extremely spotty (at best). The report indicates Apple is planning to launch October 17. This makes it a little doubtful since no invites to the announcement have been distributed. Thoughts?
