Well, I didn't like the horrendous pixelation and that's why I never bought an original iPad or iPad 2 even though I liked the concept.

I was going to buy and iPad 4 because it finally fit the bill for everything I wanted in a tablet, but the mini's ability to fit in a pocket gave it an immense portability advantage so I got one of those. One thing I've never gotten used to or liked though is how terribly aliased text is.

I'm trying to gauge when the iPad mini 2 should hit so I can eBay mine and put the cash toward one with a retina display without going iPadless for too long.

iPad mini update

The buyer's guide is listing the mini as just updated but I can't find any other info on that. Is it an April Fool's joke? I have a mini and will get the update if it has the retina display.

The key factor here could be quad core.
If A7 will be the first Axx quad core then i don't think we will see any
Ipad 5 till early,mid 2014,but i don't see Apple waiting that long so...
maybe there will be an A6 quad core inside a redesigned Ipad 5 (with mini thin bezel) with 2GB ,
this to differentiate if Mini will go to A6.
So for the mini i see or a retina one with A5 and 1GB
(but in this case the Ipad5 will have just a redesign?...)
or an Non Retina one with A6 dual and 1GB.
I hope to see a retina one with A6 and 1GB but i will accomodate myself
without any retina and A6-1GB.
