Posted In iPad, Products Review - By Techtiplib on Monday, November 5th, 2012 With No Comments »

The cost of Apple iPad Mini components (its cost price) starts  from $ 188 for a simplest model with 16 GB of internal memory and with no internal cellular module, which is sold in the U.S. market for more than $ 329, the All Things Digital website claims with reference to the analytical IHS iSuppli company.

Most of the Apple products have traditionally had high margins which allow the company to get most of the profit attributable to the mobile industry. It main competitors such as Google and Amazon are selling compact Android-tablets at a price which is close to the cost price, hoping to get main profit from the sale of digital content from their online stores.

According to the IHS iSuppli calculations, the most expensive element of iPad mini is a 7,9-inch screen with the cost about $ 80.

IHS iSuppli experts say that Apple is refusing from Samsung services, its competitor on the mobile market, which has been suing the U.S. Company for more than a year in different countries for patent claims. In the investigated iPad Mini sample, South Korean company produced only the main processor A5, while such components as screen, memory and flash memory to store data have been provided by other companies.

iPad mini sales began on November 2 in 34 countries around the world. The device has attracted less attention of the customers than usually Apple’s new devices get. Analysts predict that in the first weekend the company will sell about 1-1.5 million of these tablets.
