Apple to bring lower priced iPad Apple is expected to introduce a smaller, lower-priced, variant of its iPad in early 2012 to compete with Amazon's cheap Kindle Fire proposition, says one US-based analyst.
The news came via a story published on BGR, according to a report by You Know Mobile.
‘Our research is pointing to the unveiling of a lower priced iPad in the first few months of 2012 that is aimed at expanding the company’s market potential by tapping into a more price sensitive consumer segment," said Ticonderoga Securities analyst Brian White in a media statement.
‘Essentially, this ‘iPad mini’ will also fend off the recently announced Amazon Kindle Fire that addresses the low-end tablet market with a $199 price tag but could lead to bigger tablet ambitions from the online retailer in the future," he added .
According to White, this lower priced iPad could be priced in the mid-to-high-$200 range. Also, according to the report, White has also claimed that a more premium-grade iPad tablet will land in 2012 as well.
