In 2010, Apple introduced the world to the iPad, a high-tier tablet that has surged in popularity, selling cumulatively more than 60 million units to date. Many companies have tried to duplicate this but have had only limited success, with Apple retaining the majority of marketshare, especially in the 10-inch category. Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and others have had some success with lower-priced 7-inch models, leading to a largely bifurcated tablet market. Will Apple introduce a 7-8 inch iPad Mini / Nano during the second half of 2012 and perhaps dominate the entry-level segment, as well? If so, how many would Apple sell? What would be the consequences for Amazon and Barnes and Noble? Is RIM a target? Those questions are answered in this published report, available to download by clients to our Tablet & Touchscreen Strategies (TTS) service.
