Not one to ever be shy about disrupting the company's own lineup, our source beats the Apple drum and states that there's "fierce cannibalism of our own products" and that the iPad mini has just been "sized out of its own category." We're also told that the numbers are "very clear" as far as sales are concerned, which is most likely the biggest reason the company plans to eliminate the littlest iPad.
Basically the iPhone Plus has made the iPad mini not very attractive. That's pretty easy conclusion since I basically stopped using an iPad since upgrading to the larger iPhone. I still like laptops, and of rme, a larger iPhone simply eliminates the gap between mobile and computer.
