I don't think so ... I'll stick with a 9.7" tablet because I need a larger screen than a 7".

Same thing will be said when the iphone gets a wider screen.

Can we have the downvote button back please? Why do people want to state the obvious so much, how about a discussion on the technical merits and/or obstacles to such a product being launched. Or information about new technologies which may make this possible. Or how developers may have to alter their programming to deal with the extra pixels. Or anything on the market. Come on people.

So this entry says, "The next iPad Mini will have retina display," and then says, "No it won't".

These dart-board prognosticators are tedious. As long as someone has a website and a logo above their byline, they are heralded. Pathetic.

Would it propose a resolution of 2048x1546px (326ppi) as the article pretends ?

The majority of the first page of comments add little to the discussion and could be deleted without any difference to the topic.

The biggest downside to Apple becoming ultra popular these last couple of years is the degeneration of sites like MacRumors.

Yeah, I'm an elitist, deal with it.

Has apple had a track record of succumbing to public pressure? I think if enough people want it, the iPad mini could get retina display...

The 3 is better for looking at pictures (which I do maybe .5% of the time I'm using it, if that) or staring at the higher res icons....I guess.

The retina display is nice but if it makes it thicker and heavier, no thanks. The iPad Mini primary selling point is the even better portability. On the iPad 3, the retina display was minimally thicker and more noticeably heavier.

I think the current iPad Mini is right on.

After playing with the Mini at my Apple Store, I have to admit that the screen resolution doesn't bother me...and this is coming from a former iPad 3 owner. I'll take light weight over retina.

I actually think that Anand has a good point here - it would be quite a feat to stuff a Retina display into a mini and maintain the size, weight and battery life. While it would seem obvious that Mini 2 should have a Retina display, the technical challenges are quite tricky with current technology, unless Apple comes up with yet another resolution.

Of course, if anybody can do it, it would be Apple, but as many pointed out, look at iPad 3 and what it took.

because we already had that discussion in October, after the iPad mini was introduced without a retina display.

He's not talking about the battery life, he's talking about how long it takes to fully charge the battery. It takes around twice as long to charge it as the iPad mini

For those of you getting pissy about apple and it's typical way of doing things relax. We all know they screw us with their updates yet we keep coming back for more so why should they stop? I picked up a mini on day one and I'll pick up a retina mini when it comes out and so forth and so on.
