‘mini iPad’–Wifi Only $250 to $299?

字體 -

* The iPad mini will probably cost between $250 to $299 - or even more for a premium version with more memory and maybe cellular connectivity. The current iPad starts at $519 in Canada. Apple must be careful it doesn’t make the iPad mini too much more expensive  than competing 7-inch devices, such as the $199 Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7. But Apple at least brings iTunes and iCloud integration to the table, not to mention the App Store and it’s 700,000-odd downloads. IHS iSuppli analyst Rhoda Alexander says how low Apple goes depends on how motivated the company is to “crush the competition.”

Alexander says a $249 entry-level iPad - presumably with 8GB or 16GB of memory, and Wi-Fi only — should be enough to stave off competition, but a 4G LTE model for $299 or $349 might be too out of reach.
