Oct. 09 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg’s Jon Erlichman reports on Apple’s coming release of its newest Ipad and what that may mean for holiday sales. He speaks on Bloomberg Television's “Market Makers.” (Source: Bloomberg)

Ipad devices even if they don't have too many bells and whistles.

Here is a company that started in the first quarter this year is selling close to 23 million devices which factored in last year's holidays.

We have seen some of those sales dip down over the course of the year.

You can expect heading into the first quarter of next year that apple is likely going to have some big numbers.

The ipad mini is probably the most focused device that people will be talking about because they will introduce likely a higher resolution screen.

Price is really important.

This starts at $329. originally people said, that is not low enough to compete with the other tablets out there but they still sold a ton of them.

If they lower the price on the many, they might be able to find some new consumers.

Apple invented this category, the tablet.

Now, you have competition from the likes of amazon which recently unveiled a new candle.

How was the holiday season shaping up?

I think it will be a fun one.

You have apple, amazon, samsung which grabs a fair amount of market share.

When amazon unveiled its new devices, they have a function that allows you to connect with a customer service hersen versus video chat which highlights that amazon, while it does compete on price, it likes to move a lot of products, it has to do things that are very applelike because apple has the genius, amazon does not have that.

It will be a fun showdown.

October 22 is the day that we need to move on our calendars.

There will be a new version of the many.

Any chance that apple will surprise us?

Lex everyone is wondering that.

There are some good information we need to get on all sorts of fronts.

We have talked about how apple will unveil itunes radio and a bunch of markets around the globe.

They have share numbers that all of a sudden past ramifications for players like andorra.

Plenty to watch for later this month.
