Think about it guys, one of the biggest and highest grossing companies in the entire world (possible THE biggest company? I don't keep up with such things) really can't meet demand for one of their highest grossing products? They're saying iPad Mini won't catch up to demand until the end of this year. Assuming it's launching near the end of November, it's gonna take them an entire month before they're able to ship them out regulary? WHAT A SURPRISE IT'S RIGHT AFTER THE HOLIDAY SEASON EH?????? So anyone who was thinking about getting an iPad mini as a christmas present for a family member has only one choice now: buying the more expensive full size product! Perfect marketing strategy for Apple, considering that anyone who was planning to get an iPad Mini still would rather spend more for the bigger one than buy a garbage Android tablet. Another example is for the iPhone, seems like nothing is in stock except for the 32 and 64GB versions! Sure this is partly because most people get the 16GB, but again being the biggest company, you really don't think they'd be able to keep up with the demand for the 16GB version? Everyone here is aware of the insane profit margin difference between the 16,32,64 so do you really think that the best possible situation for Apple (having only the highest profit margin products in stock) wasn't on purpose? I'm not against Apple, I love their products (iOS ones at least). I just think they're pulling some serious shenanigans here, ones that you don't expect from the biggest company on earth. TL;DR Apple has the greatest mobile devices on the planet, and they also have the greatest marketing strategy team ever to go with it.
