For many there was sudden a decision of Apple not to equip the 1st generation of own small-sized tablet the Retina screen. Someone even reproached the company with a pursuit of profit to the detriment of innovations. But in fact introduction of the ordinary monitor in iPad mini could be caused by obvious desire to establish smaller cost on a tablet, having kept at all this satisfying Apple level of the income. Expected updating of a small-sized tablet can become more expensive in production to Apple approximately for 30 %.
On the last measure of that representation adhere in DigiTimes. Their outlook is based on need of completion of other parts of a tablet for this purpose that he managed to work properly with the screen of the highest permission. Except installation of the monitor Retina, Apple it will be necessary to change LED illumination, also to add more productive microprocessor and the capacious accumulator. Earlier specialists from IHS iSuppli counted up that one iPad mini costs Apple $188. Creation of the subsequent generation of a tablet can be more expensive the American company for 30 %. At all this in both cases cost of devices is considered only.
It is expected that the Apple will not change own tradition and will not begin to increase cost on iPad mini of the second generation. In that case the company should go on profit reduction. The 3rd option when the prices for the necessary accessories will decrease by the time of the beginning of production of the 2nd version of a small-sized tablet is probable also, also yablokovy company can pass to new technological process of production of microprocessors, having reduced their prime cost.
