Re: iPad Mini Retina Display Said to be in Production

The bigger screen is more useful in mapping, medical photos, and photography. Design is a trade-off process.
I agree...I just purchased a Mini and even though the Retina screen on the iPad 4 is nice, I'm perfectly satisfied with the Mini's screen. I doubt if I purchase a Mini 2 if/when it is released with a Retina screen. I'll probably just wait till the iPad 5 comes out and hopefully be able to purchase the iPad 4 at a discount, with at least 32gb (if they have it).
