Apple has at last started the sales of their iPad Mini and fourth-generation iPad abroad as they had planned earlier. The sales of the mobile communication device took off in New Zealand before it started entering other countries outside US.
A report has it that unlike iPhone 5 which sold very well during its launch, the sale of iPad Mini and fourth generation iPad was not as expected, though, the launch seems to be the greatest so far for Apple.
According to an estimate from an analyst organization, Apple could only release about 1-1.5 million units this time around unlike what it sold out in March. Hence, the sale of the communication device was not much in US during the weekend opening. That notwithstanding, the price of the fourth-generation iPad was cheaper than the third-generation which was sold many earlier this year.
However, notwithstanding the Hurricane Sandy in New York and East Coast recently, the iPad Mini seems to have more future than the full-size iPad. Obviously, the way the new Apple product was bought within an hour under pre-order is really a good sign that it will go far.
