From Damon Poeter’s roundup of iPad Mini commentary for PC Magazine:
Like this “key takeaway” from Apple’s iPad mini unveiling,
courtesy of Trip Chowdhry, managing director of Equity Research:
“Innovation at Apple is over … [it’s] just incremental
improvements, nothing ground breaking, the best is over for Apple.
The iPad mini is playing catch up to Google Android and probably
will have a mediocre customer adoption.”
Would be interesting to see if Chowdhry would accept a wager on whether the iPad Mini will outsell the Nexus 7 in the holiday quarter — but alas, that would require Google to release sales numbers for Nexus devices, which they don’t.
