It's important to remember the first thought Apple considers is how to maximize their profits.

Past practice has been to use the most basic inexpensive components (like the low-res display in the current mini) to start, then make customers pay top dollar for it.

After all, it does come with the "Apple Logo"

I want a mini but retina isn't a must for me. I have an iPad2 but the mini is more portable IMO.

I also want the cellular version. If the new one doesn't come with retina but a good chip and memory increase I'd probably go with a mini gen2.

Another thing I'm waiting on is to see is how iOS7 runs on the mini gen1 and if no features are left out. If it some how runs smooth and no features are left out I'd be tempted to save the money by buying the gen1 mini cellular.

Just another retina ipad mini + iphone 5S cnet.com site that mentions that the mini will possibly have the retina plus iphone 5S with a finger printer reader


PS: A few that make statements that something will not come to pass have actually had to eat their words

Agreed. I think that Apple will eventually come out with a retina iPad mini.
