iPad mini shipments may drop by 30% in Q2 due to 'lacking demand'

More potential bad news for Apple investors on Wednesday: shipments of the iPad mini could drop by as much as 30% in the second quarter. According to unnamed supply chain sources speaking with Digitimes, Apple’s manufacturing partners will ship 20% to 30% fewer iPad minis this quarter than they did between January and March due to “lacking demand in the market.” According to the report, customers are waiting for the second-generation iPad mini with a Retina display to launch, and are therefore not interested in the first model, which was released just this past November. Digitimes¬†states that Q2 iPad mini shipments are expected to fall to between 10 and 12 million units from about 15 million in the March quarter.
