Rumors about the iPad Mini continue to drop. Today The Wall Street Journal reports that suppliers in Asia have received orders from Apple to make more than 10 million units of the smaller tablets in the fourth quarter.
Some component suppliers to Apple in Asia say they have received orders to make more than 10 million units of the smaller tablets in the fourth quarter. That is roughly double the order that were placed for Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets in the same quarter, these suppliers say.
