Why do people think "Retina" iPad Mini is IMPOSSIBLE for next generation? Or we have to wait for 3rd generation. Some even claim the next iPad mini will have better resolution but not Retina. (which never happens for sure.) Early next year, every flagship smartphones will go 4" or 5" with 1080p. Also, top 7" tablet will definitely go 1080p. (Perhaps starts from Galaxy Note 7") Many people said "Retina" display needs a gigantic battery to run or the "Retina" iPad Mini cannot keep the current thickness. How can a much smaller smart phone packs with 1080P ....... and iPad Mini cannot ? OK, Retina iPad has more pixel (and bigger Display) than 1080p smartphone but it has twice more space for battery. So, I cannot wait for "Retina" iPad Mini at Mid 2013 (perhaps earlier). PS. With $429 price tag.
