DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/jlh54k/ipad_mini_sellin) has announced the addition of the "iPad mini sell-in shipments may revise down to total ~6-8M units in 2012 due to Nissha's low yield rate" report to their offering.
It seems that Nissha is recently suffering low yield rate as a result of their DITO (double-side ITO) pattering process. Also, AUO's iPad mini panel mass production schedule may delay to late August. Apple might have recently increased Foxconn's assembly allocation rate up to -50%.

2. AUO is likely to delay iPad mini panel volume production schedule to August due to mura issue.
3. Pegatron and Foxconn are projected to supply total 6-8M units of iPad mini in 2012.
