Apple Could Sell 40 Million iPad Minis in a Year, Analyst Predicts

If Apple launches the purported iPad Mini, it could sell 40 million of the 7-inch tablet within the first year, an analyst believes.

RBC Capital analyst Amit Daryanani sent a research note on Thursday, claiming that Apple's iPad Mini would generate $10 billion in revenue by selling 40 million of the device, adding an extra $1.15 in share profits, reports Forbes.

The iPad Mini could launch at a special event on 12 September, alongside the iPhone 5, according to new speculation. Although Apple has not officially confirmed a launch date, or even the existence of such device, it did reveal that there would be a "fall transition" when speaking at the quarterly earnings call in July.

Daryanani said in his note that supply-chain commentary indicates a "material ramp-up" as Apple prepares for the autumn launch.
