Rumors abound, read anything Apple.


Retina iPad Mini is sometime in the September/October bracket. Not likely for the Apple announcements next month.

Allegedly Apple is cutting orders for Mini's, so speculation is perhaps end Q2/Q3 time-frame from some of the rumors I have seen on news feeds.

But as with anything Apple, there is speculation about every which possible thing, with the actual product likely to deliver on very few of those.

I'd probably get one too with a Retina screen.... unless the next Nexus 7 announcement at I/O knocks my socks off.

I'd love the mini. Unfortunately the retina display suits itself better to charts and plates otherwise I would have "downgraded" from my iPad 3 by now. The screen on the mini is also readable in portrait mode with polarized shades which is another HUGE improvement for flying. Never mind the fact the thing is like the exact size of your average kneeboard/plate book

Man I swear I love the mini. I've owned every generation of Ipad, and both 7 inch Kindle Fire gens and I've said from the very beginning that I'd love an Ipad the size of the Fire because of how portable and easy to one hand it is. I never use my bigger Ipads now because the mini is just so much easier to run around with. I'll definitely upgrade to a new one if they release one. Haven't heard any rumors about a new one though other than there will no doubt be one at some point.

Retina Display isn't 1080p....therefore no....

needs 1080p or bust.

Everything I've seen is no Retina on iPad mini until Q4 or so. I think the iPad mini is a small iPad2. Didn't Retina hit on iPad 3? So the iPad mini would need a spec bump first. Soooo..... sell the iPad Mini with iPad 3 internals as the next revision and then resell the same exact thing with the Retina screen as the following revision.
