And further delays probably tell us the current Beta like watch is deemed too unstable !
""Building huge inventories of all the models of watches and waiting for consumers to order them risks warehousing large quantities of unsold merchandise." They will hold back supply to create demand. That is simply how other supposed luxury items create demand. 99 cent to $4 for a strap and $15 to $20 for the main watches is as close to zero risk as you can get.
Cut price deals = shopping around. It seemed obvious at the time, that with Samsung moving the S6 fully to Exynos, actually meant that Apple had signed for a much lower price, and thus a low priority deal.
Lack of GPS makes it quite pointless for the fitness freak. There is far better out there now, but we do have the fitness wannabe as a sales target.
Leds improve all the time so that also saves some power. Of course 12" is smaller than 13 so that saves power too. Also, SSD memory is getting ever and ever smaller and thus lower and lower power, and with far more capacity for same cost. Overall it looks a very cost effective offering.

Fact. Apple have always realised you need to train the consumer so that know what they want. They do this better than anyone.
They are a bunch of corrupt looking suckers in the EU. Anywhere else in the world that cash hoard would be classed as 'stolen money'.
Costs can be got down to a couple of dollars by using their own chips. But the main thing is that cheap Apple chip is a big stick to beat Intel into low prices. Win Win
Sounds like it will use a standard cheap $18 or so Intel Atom design, like those $100 Windows tablets. With the iPad in severe decline this is the future so it will be priced exactly the same as the Air 2 which itself will reduce in price. I suppose this could be a red herring in that people want to go back to keyboards and this was meant to be a 12" iPad ! A 12" iPad with a keyboard then running Apple's Arm chips ? I give it 50/50 either way as to being ARM or Intel. A...
