Apple begins mass production of dead-in-the-water tablet

Smaller tablet against the will of Jobs

Apple is pressing ahead with a smaller tablet that its sainted founder Steve Jobs said would be dead-in-the-water. Apple has reportedly instructed partners in its Asian supply chain to begin production of the iPad Mini, which means that the smaller tablet might be ready in time for the holiday season.

According to the Wall Street Journal the tablet is confirmed to feature a 7.85-inch LCD display and will not feature Apple’s Retina display technology. The tablet is supposed to compete in the smaller tablet market, against Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s new Kindle Fire devices.

Despite what Jobs said, these tablets did rather well, mostly because they were super-cheap. It seems that now that Steve has gone, the mini-tablet has gone into production.
