Apple iPad Mini Could Hurt PC Industry, says analyst

Not only will the iPad Mini make its mark on the tablet industry, but the gadget could even hurt the Computer market in doing so, an expert has predicted.

J.P. Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz stressed that buyers aim for “feel good” products during challenging economic times, consequently giving the iPad Mini and other tablets the edge over Computers. He mentioned that buyers are expected to exchange their mobile phones and tablets 2 or 3 times before they buy a new PC, leading to the normal Computer having a life cycle of between 4 and 7 years.

Apple will launch the iPad Mini at a much slower pace than the iPhone 5’s release method, Moskowitz forecasted. The modified tablet is likely to launch in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa during Nov and Dec, with the Asia-Pacific region because of receiving the device mid-December.

Apple is rumored to be saying the iPad Mini tomorrow, while a release in America and Europe is apparently set for Nov 2. Apple has reportedly developed enough confidence in the tablet by ordering Ten million models for the remaining months in 2012.
