    • The expected 7.9" retina iPad Mini (AAPL -1%) has the same resolution (2048x1536) as the 9.7" iPad Air. Both devices also have A7 CPUs, a 5MP rear camera and and HD front camera, improved Wi-Fi performance, and 10 hours of promised battery life.
    • Apple plans to charge a relatively steep $399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi-only retina Mini; Google's 2nd-gen Nexus 7 and Amazon's 7" Kindle Fire HDX, both of which also have high-res displays, start at $229.
    • The first-gen Mini's starting price has been cut to $299 from $329. That still leaves it priced well above the $200-and-cheaper 7" Android devices that have taken a large chunk of the tablet market.
    • Like the iPad Air, the retina Mini begins shipping on Nov. 1. No fingerprint sensor was disclosed for either device.
    • New iPad Smart Covers ($39) and full-wrap covers ($79) have been shown off, but the rumored keyboard cover hasn't. Logitech (LOGI +1.2%) has ticked higher in response.
    • Apple shares have dipped after the retina Mini's pricing was revealed.

The Ultimate, a top-of-the-line universal remote, sports a 2.4" touchscreen, can control up to 15 devices, has a tilt sensor, and can program Philips Hue lighting systems. The Smart Control combines a basic universal remote with a smartphone app said to be capable of controlling 225K+ home theater devices. Logitech's remote sales fell 24% Y/Y in the Dec. quarter. (PR)

    Logitech (LOGI) -9.1% after badly missing FQ3 estimates. In response, the company plans to divest its Harmony universal remote and surveillance camera businesses, as well as discontinue other products such as speaker docks and console peripherals. FQ3 retail sales -14% Y/Y (-20% in EMEA) and OEM sales -23%. PC audio -19%, PC gaming -20%, remotes -24%. Tablet accessories +119% thanks to the Ultrathin Keyboard Cover.

    Logitech (LOGI +6.5%) says it will take a $211M write-down for its videoconferencing business, which has made $440M worth of acquisitions in recent years. Logitech notes the enterprise videoconferencing market "has experienced a slowdown in recent quarters" - Polycom and Cisco can vouch for that. Not mentioned are the competitive threats posed by cloud-based and network-based solutions. Shares are nonetheless up strongly; was a bigger write-down expected?

    A day after rallying thanks to a Goldman upgrade, Logitech (LOGI -4.2%) is selling off following a downgrade to Underperform from Credit Suisse. Weak PC and home electronics peripherals sales continue to make life tough for Logitech, which just saw a CEO change.

    Logitech (LOGI -2.6%) is near 10-year lows again after H-P reported an awful quarter for its PC division, and Reuters took a close look at the peripherals maker's challenges. In addition to poor PC demand, Logitech has been hurt by a weak reception for audio products (headphones, Wi-Fi speakers, etc.) meant to exploit the mobile device boom, and has to deal with efforts from OEMs to sell their own accessories. Going forward, a lack of gesture/voice recognition solutions could present a challenge.

    Logitech (LOGI -10.5%) becomes the latest PC-centric name to fall after a weak earnings report. In addition to missing FQ2 estimates, the company warned its fiscal 2H sales and operating income will be down Y/Y. FQ2 OEM sales fell 27% Y/Y (weaker keyboard/mouse sales), echoing Microsoft's huge Windows sales drop, while retail sales fell 5%. Audio sales -14%, Video -17%, Harmony remote sales -14%, with units falling 31%. Gross margin was up 500 bps Q/Q and 210 bps Y/Y. (prepared remarks, slides - PDF)
