Apple Manufacturer Sees Weaker Demand for the iPad Mini This Quarter
One of Apple’s contract manufacturers, Pegatron, recently said that its second quarter consumer electronics revenue will drop 25% to 30% from the previous quarter. The decline in revenue is from iPad mini production is “more on demand, while price has been stable,” but CEO Jason Cheng also noted that “almost every item is moving in a negative direction” for the quarter. “Not just tablets, also e-books and game consoles.” Bloomberg mentioned the following in their report:
The iPad Mini accounts for more than half of Pegatron’s consumer-electronics revenue, and the iPhone 4S contributes a majority of sales in the communications division, Cheng said.
"This is a bigger drop than we’d expected," said Vincent Chen, who rates the company buy at Yuanta Financial Holding Co. in Taipei. "We’re seeing strong indications from the supply chain that demand for iPad Mini will now fall 20 percent to 30 percent from the first quarter, instead of an earlier 15 percent estimate."

I rather buy a bigger iPhone than have a iPad mini and a small iPhone. Love the sizes of other phones out there. I like the size of my iPad. I am disappointed with Apple myself and I feel their falling behind.
