A new report out of Taiwan this morning states that the sales volume of the iPad mini and the fourth-generation iPad 4 are at a ratio of 3:1 for mobile telecom carriers' contract-bundled sale and 4:1 for contract-free sales through the retail channel, according to sources with local retailers.
Although the iPad mini enjoys better demand, channel retailers and the telecom carriers are not allowed to place orders directly for the device, the sources claimed. Clients must first place orders for the iPad 4 before they can purchase the iPad mini, reports DigiTimes.
