    Retina iPad Mini to Launch This Year


    According to a news story on Bloomberg, as reported on by BGR, Apple is set to launch a second-gen iPad mini with Retina display later this year. Bloomberg says that Apple will announce both the iPad mini and a new full-sized iPad towards the end of the year. According to BGR, the fifth-gen full-sized iPad will be completely redesigned, as well as much thinner, and will more closely resemble the iPad mini. Bloomberg does not have any firm date as to when Apple might release these two new iPads, but it does say that it will definitely not be during Apple’s September 10 event, which will be dedicated solely to announcing the two new iPhones that Apple is about to release. Bloomberg says that Apple is looking to launch so many new products towards the end of the year in order to tempt consumers with a refreshed line of all of its best-selling products in time for the holiday shopping season.

    (((sigh)))...I had a feeling of this. That's ok though, I may just give my mom my iPad mini and then get the new iPad mini for myself!! I think that's fair!!

    Cool! I've been waiting for this - I usually carry my Kindle Fire on my motorcycle since it fits in my jacket pocket, but if the Mini will fit and has a Retina screen and (possibly) the option of 128GB of storage...
    You had your entire life to prepare for today.

    Hi Carol - don't tell my wife about the 'retina' display - she's quite happy w/ her new Mini and I don't want to tell her that 'reading' would be likely easier w/ the new display (found that out when I purchased a 13" MBP w/ retina display in the spring of this year - i.e. I can SEE the small letters!) - Dave

    I know...it's all so exciting these possibilities that are coming out as we get closer to a formal announcement. (Hopefully soon!) Anyways, the retina display sounds wonderful, but I am really interested in the other changes to the hardware. Currently have an iPad 2 and would love to upgrade to something that is a little more current when the time comes. ...all I know, is my mom will be happy when she gets a mini if it is the new one or the original!
