Rumor: Retina iPad Mini Pictures Surface

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.
