Apple's iPad Mini Steals Spotlight: Tech Weekly

Munster estimated Apple could sell anywhere between 4 million and 6 million of the rumored iPad Minis in the holiday quarter.
Speaking of iPad news, Apple also announced this week that its latest iPad, which was launched in March, will go on sale in China starting July 20.
