iSuppli, now part of IHS, has again thrown themselves into dismantling devices, identifying the manufacturers of individual components and estimating how much these components would cost. This time it was iPad mini's turn iSuppli went after the basic 16 gigabyte model without WiFi which sells for $329, but has a relative production cost around $ 188. Of course, this is only the cost of materials and the difference between the selling price and the cost of materials is not pure profit. This is because companies spend a lot of money on the development, marketing and software support for the device. At the same time, they must pay the people who have made the devices.

AU Optronics showed off a demo mobile phone with a screen, which they claim is the screen for mobile devices with the shortest edge in the smartphone world; edge of only 1 mm. Or to be more precise, when a touch sensor is put into the device, it can be integrated into a cell phone so it will have an edge width of only one millimeter. The demo phone has a screen diagonal of 4.46-inch and comes with a high-definition resolution. The company stated that they used their own technology for the "super thin edge" method and LTPS (low temperature poly-silicon) method.
