These Analysts Are Wrong About the iPad Mini

Now that 2013 is closing in, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is out with estimates for what lies ahead in Q4 and beyond. Analysts there expect plenty of action in most sectors, including 32 million tablets sold. Impressed? Don't be. There's good reason to believe the CEA is downplaying the potential impact of not only Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL  ) iPad Mini, but also Amazon.com's (Nasdaq: AMZN  ) Kindle Fire HD, Google's (Nasdaq: GOOG  ) Nexus 7, and Microsoft's (Nasdaq: MSFT  ) Surface. Find out more in the following video.

To be fair, we don't yet have a full accounting of the iPad Mini. Sales could disappoint, even if Apple's own component commitments suggest a record-breaking quarter is in the works. Either way, investors have a lot of information to digest. To help, we've added two bonus reports to our premium Apple research service. Each one addresses a different area of the Mac maker's business, and they're included -- right now -- at no additional charge. Learn more by clicking here

    I agree CEA's estimate is low. I think Apple alone could do 25 to 28 mil tablets in holiday quarter, and I agree that Apple is great buy here.
