If you are trying to get your hands on an Apple iPad Mini, you may be out of luck. Overseas suppliers are running low on materials needed to fulfill the demand for the 7-inch tablet.
LG Display and AU Optronics currently do not have the resources to prevent the shortage of the device from happening. This issue could continue to happen until the first quarter.
“Mass production of panels used in the iPad mini has reportedly suffered low yield rates, and backlight module providers have also had a shortage of supplies, which is affecting the amount of iPad minis that can be shipped in 2012,? stated a source with Digitimes.
