Peter Cohen from imore.com was on Gene Steinberg's Tech Night Owl podcast. He says he doesn't think we'll see a retina mini this year because of margins. My question would be is Apple confident that people will continue to buy the mini without a retina display? Because a retina mini with perhaps slightly lower margins is better than no mini sale at all. It's one thing if Apple is having yield issues with mini displays, or battery life isn't meeting their expectations. But if Apple has solved for these issues I think it would be a huge mistake not to produce a retina mini for the sake of keeping margins higher. With Apple's latest quarterly results we saw a 3% YOY decline in iPad sell through. Also I think the revenue numbers are a pretty good indication that more people are buying minis (either because of price or form factor). A retina mini, I believe, could become one of Apple's most successful products ever. But with the new Nexus 7, Galaxy Note, and rumored Kindles with improved displays I don't know that Apple can hold off on a retina mini for another year. I think it will be a shame if Apple can't figure out a way to get us a retina mini this year (even if the device has to be a little thicker/heavier to do it).
