Apple is going to sell out of its Christmas 2012 supply of iPad minis no matter how much it costs — $329, $200, whatever. Why leave money on the table? If it can sell 100% of its iPad mini supply for more than $329, why bother selling any to people who would only buy it for less than $329?
Furthermore, Dave Caolo:
Consumers have chosen the $499 iPad over the $199 Kindle Fire in droves. What do you think is going to happen now that the iPad is $329? Apple will sell tons of them.
