    i was thinking Porsche who are coming out with a Panjur (sp) aka iPad mini, to fill in the gap between the 911 and the Panamera. As I recall Porsche only makes Boxers, 911s and Panameras (cars I know they have a line of SUV).

    iPad mini, iPad2, iPad Retina long AAPL

  • More on the iPad Mini: The cheapest model (16GB Wi-Fi) goes for $329. Amazon and Google, sellers of the $199 Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7, are probably breathing sighs of relief. As expected, there's no retina display inside the Mini, but there is an HD front camera and 5MP back camera, and 3G/4G models are offered (they start at $459). Like the iPad 2, the Mini is powered by an A5 processor. Apple (AAPL -2.2%) is selling off. (live blog).  [View news story]

  • Next up from Apple (AAPL -0.8%): An updated regular iPad (Apple calls it 4th-gen). The device features an A6X processor (2x as fast as A5X), faster Wi-Fi, a Lightning connector, similar battery life, and unchanged pricing. And the iPad Mini: it sports a 7.9" display (as expected), is 7.2mm thick (23% thinner than regular iPad), and weighs just 0.68 lbs. Apple also announced a revamped iBooks app - the education market clearly figures prominently here. (live blog, webcast - available on Safari)  [View news story]
    I'm not sure why iPad (retina) buyers would care?! Roughly 7x5 vs 10x7 ... two different markets, two different buyers.

    And the savvy buyer would have known that Apple does not sit on it's laurels on any product, new products every 18-24 months.

  • As Apple (AAPL +4%) gets ready to unveil a smaller and cheaper iPad, the education market is taking center stage. Schools and colleges have already begun buying iPads en masse - education-related iPad sales doubled Y/Y in the June quarter - and the iPad Mini launch could accelerate this trend. Among Apple's efforts to cater to educational institutions: dedicated sales teams, regular meetings with school officials, financing for volume orders, and a digital textbook initiative[View news story]

  • The iPad Mini, expected to be announced at an Oct. 23 event, will go on sale on Nov. 2, a "source close to Apple's supply chain" tells TechCrunch. Early calendar Q4 estimates for Mini sales are generally in the 5M-6M range, with a modest amount of regular iPad cannibalization expected. Top Apple (AAPL) fan John Gruber, who has some sources within Apple (but doesn't cite them here), predicts the Mini will be cheaper than the latest iPod Touch, which starts at $299.  [View news story]

    I surprised you're surprised SA has beat AAPL's fundamentals to death with a chart for every stat almost weekly,

    AAPL PM 2007 15%, 6/2012 25%, 3/2012 29%, for comp,
    GOOG PM 2007 25%, 6/2012 15%

    @sduris, i think your link is in error the 23% profit margin they are quoting is for AAPL not the iPhone.

    The BOM for the iPhone 4S was about $188-200 and for the iPhone 5 I've seen $210-270 for the 16GB version, hence the gross profit margin for the iPhone is around 50-60%% or so.

    @option man, you wrote "each individual needs their own iPad to sync with phone," not exactly.

    I assume you mean sync cal/address/email, etc. You can add whichever email accounts you want to iCloud and choose to add or not on your device. Likewise for Cal you can have multiple calendars setup in the cloud and choose which to display on the phone. Address is a little tricky, but you can still have mulitple groups setup and choose to select for viewing whichever you want. I say a little tricky because you have to set them up or migrate them one at a time for ease.

    Now with regard to music and photos you can setup photostream and create albums from the stream, music I'm not sure.

    The Asus Nexus, which is what you have yes, is made at the Asus factory ... where? It appears that the only things made at Samsung's Texas plant are chips?
