According to a report
from the mixed-accuracy Taiwanese trade paper DigiTimes, one of Apple's suppliers for 9.7-inch iPad displays saw a 90 percent drop in production from December to January. Orders for full-size displays went from six million units to 600,000, a figure that is seen as exceptionally low even for the traditionally slower calendar second quarter. Blame for the dramatic drop is attributed by the paper to ongoing and growing popularity of the iPad mini
, which accounted for the majority of the five million displays LG shipped to Apple.
