After traveling around Taipei and speaking with Apple suppliers, Topeka analyst Brian White said in an interview with AllThingsD that the "iPad Mini could outshine the new iPad in terms of how the device feels in a consumer’s hands."
White has good supply chain sources, so his thoughts on the iPad Mini are likely pretty solid.
In light of the news that Apple has ordered 10 million units, the company seems confident that the iPad Mini will be a runaway hit when it's released.
The iPad Mini is expected to launch at the end of October or early November.
