Apple has not yet publicly announce how much dollars it’s making from iPhones and iPads. The secret has been concealed by the company since the introduction of iPhone in 2007. But this time, it seems tough for Apple to bury the secrets because a U.S. based judge Lucy Koh, who presided Apple-Samsung patent suit,  wants Apple to disclose the facts about the pricing of Apple’s iPhones and iPads. Indeed, it’s time for Apple to justify why Samsung would pay $1.05 billion for the damages what Apple filed in the court.

It’s pretty-known that Apple’s smallest Tablet is coming tomorrow with an expensive price tag starting from $329. Of course, the Tablet (with price tag off $329) will have 16 GB of onboard storage and will offer Wi-Fi only– cellular connectivity will not be available in the base Tablet. However, we have already mentioned that users will have to pay an additional $120 for the purchase of cellular models of upcoming iPad mini.

Google To Launch 10-inch Nexus Tablet

As the market is flourished with high-end 7-inch Tablets, the pricing of Apple’s ‘iPad Mini’ seems very embarrassing. Talking of price tags, Google is expected to offer one of the cheapest Nexus Tablets by the end of this month. Google is going to introduce a 10-inch Nexus  Tablet (that offers 32 GB  memory storage) on October 29 . The search giant could also launch second 32 GB variant on the same day that will offer HSPA+ (3G) support. Presently, Google’s 7-inch Nexus 7 Tablet has been lashed  out for lack of rear camera, memory card slots and cellular connectivity.

Besides, Google is also working with Samsung to launch a 10-inch Tablet. The Tablet will feature Android 4.2 OS and a resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels with 300 PPI. Of course, the device will have higher resolution even compare to Apple’s third generation Tablet (new iPad).

Could Apple Leverage On Previous Record Of iPad Shipments? 

Apple shipped 17 milion iPads in Q2 of this year and expecting to have shipped 14.8-23 million iPads in Q3 2012—however, WSJ showed off a range of 19.5-23 million units.

It’s true that Apple is unilaterally dominating in the Tablet segment with 68.2% market share, but this time it’s not easy for the company to contend its rivals. Amazon’s has already launched 7-inch Kindle Fire HD Tablet at very affordable price tag. The iPad Mini is expected to have older dual-core A5 processor, while in comparison, Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD feature quad-core NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor. Moreover  Apple needs to rethink about its pricing-strategy in order to compete with rivals those are offering devices at very affordable price tags.
