A new report from Clare Jim and Reiji Murai in Reuters suggests that supply chain constraints will leave hungry Apple fans without a Retina iPad Mini this year:
Apple's supply chain is only now gearing up to make retina displays for the iPad Mini, which means the gadgets could be available in only limited quantities this year, if at all, and the company may miss the chance to cash in on the year-end holiday shopping season, the sources said.
According to Reuters, Apple is also looking to cut the cost of the Mini and may offer a model with 8GB of internal memory.
Apple is expected to announce new iPads as soon as this month. High-resolution displays have now appeared on Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's new Kindle Fire HDX tablets.
