    Saw the iPad air earlier today, it is really beautiful, there is no rival tablet to the iPad air

    The new retina mini comes end of this month and that had the same specs as the sir but more pixels. Amazing

    Few days ago I saw the Microsoft surface 2 tablet, it is bulkier without case then my iPad 3 with case, more uncomfortable and produces too much heat for my liking. Prices are high too so it's no brainer which to choose. I am not surprised that Microsoft ran a 900$ million loss / write off with the surface 1, with this the loss will easily cross the billion dollar mark

    Same number of pixels, only in a smaller screen; which means higher resolution/density. This is only a minor improvement despite how itsounds. The iPad Air is already a retina display, which means at normal viewing distance you can't see individual pixels. People with excellent eyesight and holding the iPad 3 next to their face claimed they could see pixels, barely. The iPad Air should be the same.

    The iPad Mini retina should be nearly impossible to see individual pixels, even when holding it to your eyeball.

    For normal viewing, it's just not going to be a big deal, which is why Apple didn't make a big deal out of the spec. They main reason for the screen's resolution is so that it has exactly the same number of pixels as the larger iPad Air, so that developers don't' have to support another screen resolution; and all current apps will work exactly the way they do on the Air.

    The only differences that have been identified (so far) between the iPad Air and iPad Mini Retina are the physical size of the screen and $100 U.S. in the price. When the iPad Mini is finally available for tear down, we might find a few other minor differences.


    On a slightly different note, iFixit has discovered that the A7 processor in the iPad Air is a bit different (at least the model number) than the one in the iPhone 5. It is also clocked at a slightly higher speed. I don't remember what source that last came from. I read it at day or two ago.

    Does anyone else get that slightly awkward feeling when two members post a comment at the exact same time?

    Only if I here laboured mechanical breathing and the whoosh of a light sabre being deployed.

    Overcome by that old social standby "Jinx, you own me a beer." Root beer if underage.

    That's correct, the pixels are the same but the density, pixel per inch (ppi) is higher on the iPad mini due to the smaller size.

    (English folk verse from somewhere around 1870)

    The Fifth of November

    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England's overthrow.
    But, by God's providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James's sake!
    If you won't give me one,
    I'll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

    Going to be watching V for Vendetta after I get home from work in about 16 hours.

    After more than two years, I thought I had iPad care completely under control until I got 7 minis all at once.
