iPad mini sales open today at US (but just in black colour for now). Despite a couple of weeks behind schedule, Apple is expecting a big warm welcome for iPad mini in market. As per the statement of Gene Munster at Piper Jaffray, the expected sale figure would be around 1.5 million units for the new 7.85″ slate. Well we can never expect less from Apple, but what astonishes us is the time span he stated. According to his projection he believe that Apple is going to hit 1.5 Million sales of iPad mini before the weekend is over.
Moreover he also adds that the compact style is still a relatively new concept to Apple fans. According to him
“Consumers will gradually realize the benefits of the smaller form factor, which will drive adoption, although it may not take form in lines for tomorrow’s launch.”
