    This isn't good. Supply sources say that Apple has just started production of the iPad mini 2. If it's available this year, it will be in short supply.

    Given the way the iPhone 5s has been sold out everywhere, I'm not surprised. This could be even worse. Forget about trying to get a gold iPad mini 2 this Christmas, unless you get your camping gear out today.

    I heard there's not going to be a retina display.

    That's an old rumor. The new one is that it will have it.

    What new Apple device isn't in short supply when they come out? Seems like this is basically the norm. Microsoft is having the same issue with the Surface 2 and it hasn't even hit stores yet :eek:

    The bs meter is running pretty high that the Surface 2 would actually be in high demand after their $900 million write off on the first model. I love the statement saying "it's unclear how many tablets Microsoft made and what "close to selling out" actually means."

    I noticed that now Microsoft is telling the developers that they need apps. :D
