Apple Inc.'s shares are down 1.8 percent to $622.34 in afternoon trading. The stock is down 12 percent from the all-time high of $705.07 touched on Sept. 21.

Amazon's stock, meanwhile, is up less than 1 percent to $235.27. Shares of Google Inc., another tablet competitor, also inch up less than 1 percent, to $682.92.
