    iPad mini and Fourth-Gen iPad Screens Compared


    AppleInsider reports today on a test carried out by Repair Labs on the iPad mini and all the previous iPads, for the purposes of examining their pixel density and image quality. When the fourth-gen iPad is compared with the iPad mini, it turns out that the pixels in the former are just two thirds the size of those of the iPad mini. This is in comparison to the iPad 2ís pixels, which are double the size of those of the fourth-gen iPad. This finding promoted Repair Labs to assert that the difference between the fourth-gen iPad and the iPad miniís pixels is ďless noticeable. In fact, to the naked eye, itís negligible.Ē

    The pixel count has been one of the main talking points about the iPad mini, which went on sale yesterday, so itís interesting to note that it may not be quite as big an issue as some have been saying. AppleInsider also notes that it is possible that the next version of the iPad mini will have a Retina display, as component costs will decrease in future due to the stabilizing of manufacturing yield rates.

    In fact, to the naked eye, it’s negligible.
    I'm a big fan of the iPad mini, but whoever wrote the above sentence needs glasses. The difference in the two screen is very noticeable (that's not to say that the mini's screen is bad, but it is really saying that the retina screen is really, really good). The day when a mini is released with a retina screen will be the day apple releases their best iPad ever. Period.

    I gotta agree here. The lack of a retina display is a mini killer. Just no excuse for it. The iPod touch now has it.....crazy.
