    iDownload Blog notes today that China Times has been talking about the possibility of Apple launching an iPad mini with a Retina display sometime this year. In fact, the Taiwanese paper reports that Apple has already started testing display panels. Apparently, Foxconn subsidiary Shenzhen Century Science & Technology (SCST) is said to be joining LG Display and AU Optronics, who make the panels for the first-gen iPad mini. In particular, China Times says that Apple is interested in using SCST’s Retina-class panels, which use One Glass Solution (OGS) tech. iDownload Blog says that SCST has already given Apple some of these panels to test, which is a sign that Apple has not yet made the final decision on which manufacturers it wants to use, and is still demoing options. Talking about this new OGS tech, China Times, which is based in Taiwan, says that it is more mature than the current in-cell tech use in the iPhone 5, as well as having other benefits.

      Definitely an update I'm interested in. I'm enjoying my iPad 2 but weight has become an issue for me, physically, so let the mini Retinas roll!

      I'd like to see the new mini come out...I have been on the fence so long and now figure to wait for the new one.

      To me, I wouldn't mind because it wouldn't be same old. I currently own an iPad 2, so getting an iPad with 3 guts would be great!

      March would be nice! I'm curious what they'll unveil even if I don't end up buying.

      If a mini had the guts of an iPad 3, it would be a quite powerful tablet with a 300 ppi screen, which is much higher than the iPad 3.

      It is curious that some people seem to want change for no other reason than because it is different.

      One feature I would like to see in an apple table is a Wacom digitizer. But it might take a while for them to get there.

      Do you reckon apple will be forced to go down the flexi screen route? I think they will release a budget one first then put all the tech and more into the following model. This way they get more money from us.
