A survey suggests that Windows PCs, not 10-inch iPads, will be its primary victim
FORTUNE -- The day after the iPad mini was unveiled, Cowen's Matthew Hoffman wrote that he expected Apple's (AAPL) latest tablet to be "largely cannibalistic" -- eating directly into the sales of Apple's 10-inch iPad -- and he trimmed his iPad sales estimates accordingly.
But to be certain, he ordered a survey of 1,225 Americans to gauge their MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 15, 2012 7:25 AM ET
Suggested gifts on Apple's online store range from $30 to $500
FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) must think Americans are feeling pretty flush this holiday season. With only 10 days to go before the madness of Black Friday, it posted a holiday gift guide Tuesday featuring some pretty pricy presents.
Topping the page is the new iPad mini starting at $329. Given that Americans spent an average of $705 on presents last Christmas, MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 13, 2012 11:19 AM ET
PolitiFact would have given the company's assertions a "pants on fire" rating
FORTUNE -- Many Apple (AAPL) aficionados got a kick out of the company's impudent response to a London High Court's order that it "clear the fog" it created by suing Samsung in the U.K. for allegedly copying the iPad's design -- a lawsuit it lost both in trial and appeal.
Ordered to post a two-paragraph corrective on its website and MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 12, 2012 12:50 PM ET
With Apple trading below $550, Brian White's price target still stands at $1,100
FORTUNE -- Of all the sell-side analysts who have stuck their necks out on Apple (AAPL) -- and with a mean price target or $667, there are plenty -- none is further out on a limb than Topeka Capital's Brian White. He set a 12-month target of $1,100 a share last April and hasn't budged since.
On Thursday, with Apple's MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 8, 2012 10:49 AM ET
"Time to sell or time to buy? There's probably an app for that."
FORTUNE -- ABC News Nightline weighed in Wednesday night on the recent decline in Apple's (AAPL) share price.
Bulls and bears, I suspect, will both find something not to like in the report. The line that raised my eyebrows highest:
"Even Microsoft, long ago left in Apple's dust, has a new exciting tablet called the Surface nudging for attention and MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 8, 2012 8:33 AM ET
Despite stock outs, sales of the Wi-Fi only model exceeded most of their expectations
FORTUNE -- The actual number of iPad minis (as opposed to iPad 4s) sold over the past three days is still unclear. Piper Jaffray's Gene Munster put it at 2 to 2.5 million, despite the fact that 9 out of 10 customers his firm polled last Friday were buying the mini, and not the full-sized iPad 4.
But MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 5, 2012 11:18 AM ET
In pre-market trading, AAPL went from down $3 to up more than $8 on the news
FORTUNE -- Apple (AAPL) announced Monday that it sold 3 million iPads in the three-day weekend since sales of the iPad mini and fourth-generation iPad began Friday morning.
The company did not offer details about how many of each model it sold, although the vast majority of customers who queued up on Friday were buying the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 5, 2012 9:03 AM ET
Android tablets -- from Samsung and Amazon -- took up the slack
FORTUNE -- IDC's report on the worldwide tablet market for the third quarter of calendar 2012 -- before Apple (AAPL) released the new iPad mini and iPad 4 -- show the growth of the global market slowing and Apple's share of that market falling from to 50.4% from 65.5% in calendar Q2.
"After a very strong second quarter, Apple saw growth slow as MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 5, 2012 8:33 AM ET
Meanwhile, a new survey shows a dip in the loyalty of Apple iPhone owners
FORTUNE -- Here are two Monday morning Apple (AAPL) news items that pull in opposite directions.
Aymco's Horace Dediu has published a series of charts that show the growth in the smartphone market share of Google's (GOOG) Android slowing over past six months while iOS is still gaining. See The late smartphone adopter paradox.
Meanwhile, a website called Tom's MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Nov 5, 2012 7:27 AM ET
Analysts' estimates range from 800,000 to 3 million
FORTUNE -- Some queues for the iPad mini were shorter than expected. Others seemed unnaturally long. And when reports of stock outs began coming in, it wasn't clear whether demand was too strong or supplies too short.
Apple (AAPL), it seems, can't win the iPad mini expectations game. Take, for example, the sales estimates put forward by analysts for the first three days of sales:
