3 Tech Titans Making Noise: Apple’s iPad Delay, BlackBerry’s Big Charges, Microsoft’s Issue With Gates
Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL): The iPad Mini equipped with Apple’s retina display will be delayed, Reuters says. “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,” sources told the publication. More significantly, this means that Apple may miss the crucial holiday shopping season. Meanwhile, rivals are hiking the specs and decreasing the prices of their tablets, putting further pressure on Apple to get the iPad onto shelves.
