Analyst: iPad Mini Can Inhibit the Sale of Windows 8 Units

Apple’s new iPad Mini, according to an analyst can be the cause of that sales of Windows 8 units is hampered.

Apple’s launch of the iPad Mini, may very well be the cause of decreasing sales of Windows 8 units.¬†That is the opinion of the analyst, Shaw Wu, from the Sterne Agee.

-“We believe still that the iPad Mini is its rivals’ worst nightmare, and it will probably inhibit the sale of competitors’ tablets,” said Wu in a note.

“Specifically, we believe that it can end with a hard Christmas sale for Windows¬†8, he says according to our site.

It is the analysts’ expectation that the price of an iPad Mini will be attractive and draw buyers away from Windows 8 units.

The smallest version of the iPad Mini with WiFi and 16 GB of space costs in Denmark just over 2,500 dollars.
