According to Reuters this morning, Sharp, who is one of three companies supplying displaying panels for both the iPad and the iPad Mini has slowed production to 'minimal levels this month' for the full size iPad.

Analysts are saying this morning that this fuels previous speculation that the iPad mini has been hurting sales of the full-size iPad. Of course there's no word if any of the other manufacturers have stepped up production, or if this is in any way related to rumors of Spring-time product updates. It's also unknown how many of the panels the company already has is stock -- so there's a lot of smoke here, but little fire.

Earlier this week, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted in an investor analyst note that both the 5th Generation iPad and iPad mini will be released in the third quarter.

His predictions? The 5th Generation iPad will receive an updated design, matching that of the iPad Mini including a thinner bezel and less weight. The iPad Mini 2 he's predicting will go Retina.

iPad mini is a completely new iPad design that is 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than the third generation iPad, and features a stunning 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, FaceTime HD and 5 megapixel iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless performance* and an incredible 10 hours of battery life.** The fourth generation iPad features a gorgeous 9.7-inch Retina display, new Apple-designed A6X chip, FaceTime HD camera and ultrafast wireless performance*. Both iPad mini and the new fourth generation iPad come with iOS 6.


iPhone 5 is the thinnest and lightest iPhone ever, completely redesigned to feature a stunning new 4-inch Retina display; an Apple-designed A6 chip for blazing fast performance; and ultrafast wireless*-all while delivering even better battery life.** iPhone 5 comes with iOS 6, the world's most advanced mobile operating system with over 200 new features including: Shared Photo Streams, all-new Maps app, Passbook organization and even more Siri features and languages.

iPad mini with Wi-Fi models come in black & slate or white & silver for a suggested retail price of $329 (US) for the 16GB model, $429 (US) for the 32GB model and $529 (US) for the 64GB model. The fourth generation iPad with Wi-Fi models come in black or white for a suggested retail price of $499 (US) for the 16GB model, $599 (US) for the 32GB model and $699 (US) for the 64GB model.
