Apple‘s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, At the end of his Apple iPad Air introduction, Phil Schiller, Apple’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, took a moment to address one the most requested feature for the iPad Mini, the addition Retina Display. So here it is, the new Apple iPad Mini with Retina Display.
Physically identical to the current iPad Mini, the new device features the same 7.9-inch display but now with 2048 x 1536 resolution. With over 3.1 million pixels, about a million more than an average HDTV, the iPad Mini with Retina Display also complements this new addition with the A7 64-bit processor and M7 motion co-processor. Now you will have a desktop-level processing speed that is about 4 times faster than its predecessor, yet still with a battery-life of 10 hours.
Prices start at $399 USD for the 16GB unit, Wi-Fi and Cellular version starts at $529 USD. And just like its larger cousin, the range climbs in an increment of $100 with 32GB for $499 USD, 64GB for $599, and 128GB for $699. The same goes for the Wi-Fi and Cellular version, with 32GB for $629, 64GB for $729, and finally 128GB for $829. Since there are still an inventory of original iPad Mini left, Apple will lower them to $299 for Wi-Fi and $429 for Wi-Fi & Cellular, respectably. The new Apple iPad Mini comes in Space Gray or Silver, and will be available in Late November.
