In April 2010, with Apple selling over 300,000 iPads on the first day of its launch in the US, Steve Jobs said that "it's going to be a game changer".

iPad Mini

iPad Mini is Apple's unconfirmed model of its famous iPad tablet which is much cheaper and smaller. It is rumored that Apple would unveil iPad Mini on 23 October 2012. The dates were postponed initially from October 10 to October 17 and to October 23. Apple reportedly ordered 10 million units of iPad Mini and it is mass produced in Asia.

iPad Mini is likely to be a 7.85-inch device to compete with similar models from Samsung and Amazon. Experts predict that iPad Mini will be priced at $299. It will be a Wi-Fi only version.

By not having a iPad Mini product, Apple is ceding 20% of the market to competitors.
