Rumor: Retina iPad Mini Pictures Surface

Feb 23 2013, 12:50pm CST | by

Another iPad on the way?

What's that? Another iPad, you say? That's right -- it looks like Apple might be working on yet another distinct model in its increasingly varied tablet product family. A new picture has surfaced of what appears to be a version of the iPad Mini with a Retina Display.

The Retina technology has been used in the most recent iPad units, but it was notably absent in the iPad Mini, obviously because the entire point of the Mini was to offer an iPad product as inexpensively as possible.

But the iPad Mini hasn't really been a stellar success for Apple. It turns out that people don't really want a cheap iPad. If they want an inexpensive tablet, they'll go for an Android product.

Plus, even though the iPad Mini was touted as the mass-accessible iPad, it really isn't that much less expensive than a regular iPad. And given how much less functionality and technology the iPad Mini had, it has kind of been a no-brainer to go for the regular iPad instead. This has left the Mini in a state of limbo.

Instead of giving up on the miniature form factor, though, it looks like Apple is going to try to reinvent it as something that is just as good as the regular iPad, but with a smaller size for those who want something compact.

The potential problems for this are that it will of course drive up the price of the iPad Mini, and it will also make the iPad "Mini" a bit bulkier. We'll see if it can become a success.

Review: Gravitas from Henge Docks is a premium dock that ‘stays put’…almost (Video)

Alternative View - Glastonbury Festival
I don’t understand why Apple doesn’t sell a premium dock for iOS devices. There’s such an attention to detail when it comes to product design at Apple, yet they continue to sell a dinky plastic dock for select devices. I’ve never been a fan of these plastic docks and have been in search of something with a little more class for a while now. Recently, I came across Gravitas from Henge Docks. This is a wei ...
