Apple's iPad mini Expected to Catch Up with Demand in Q1 2013

T5 1PBLK2 - Patently Informative
In September, NPD DisplaySearch estimated that Apple would ship 8 million iPad mini units in 2012 and 20 million for all of 2013. Then earlier this week the news came to light that that Apple will greatly expand the iPad mini's production in 2013 due to bringing on more capacity via Pegatron. Today, DigiTimes is reporting that Taiwan-based supply chain makers confirm that Apple will indeed ship 8 million iPad mini units but could have shipped 12 million if Apple would have been able to secure enough displays. The good news is that Taiwan's supply chain suppliers expect Apple to ship 13 million iPad minis in Q1 2013 alone, which will easily sail past the 20 million mark for all of 2013 as forecasted earlier by NDP DisplaySearch.
