The iPad Mini is out, and the preliminary sales numbers look fantastic. But Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is not invincible, and the company has made mistakes before. Steve Jobs himself once called all 7-inch tablets "dead on arrival," and many Apple bears have called this a red flag. In this video, Motley Fool analyst Eric Bleeker takes us through some of the major fears investors have about the iPad Mini. Will the majority of sales simply be cannibalizing regular iPad sales, leaving Apple's bottom line unchanged? Is the iPad Mini's premium pricing too high to edge out some of the more aggressively priced competitors? Eric addresses these fears for investors.
