Zach Epstein, BGR, back on 15 November:
Demand for Apple’s iPad tablet is said to be in decline as
competition finally heats up thanks to the $199 Kindle Fire from
Amazon, and investors could be in for a disappointing fourth
quarter as a result. In a recent research note, Goldman Sachs
analyst Bill Shope suggested Apple’s firm grip on the global
tablet market may finally loosen unless the Cupertino,
California-based company lowers its pricing.
Actual results: 15.4 million iPads sold, a 111 percent increase over the year-ago quarter.
