iPad Mini Gets A7-chip and Retina Display Boost

iPad Mini with Retina display

It’s a double blow to tablet makers as Apple now has not one, but two tablet PCs powered with Apple’s A7 64-bit chip. I would say that there’s an equal amount of skepticism and hopefulness on the iPad Mini. But the announcement today definitely clears the air and gets the hopeful fanboys jumping in joy.

Besides the 64-bit A7 processor – with the M7 motion coprocessor, the new and improved iPad Mini also comes with Retina Display. It’s great to see that the 7.9-inch panel is now as crisp and sharp as the rest of the product family. The device now offers a 2,048 x 1,536 resolution panel, which will make photos crisper, apps clearer, and iOS 7 just that little bit more beautiful.

The camera remains largely unchanged for the rear camera, which still features 1080p video recording. However, the FaceTime HD camera has been improved.

AVAILIBITY

The iPad mini 2 with Retina display will be available later in November and it comes in 16, 32 and 64GB storage configurations in either Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + Cellular.

PRICING

With the boost of a Retina display, the device now is a tad bit expensive than the previous-gen iPad mini. The Wi-Fi only version starts at $399 for the 16GB model, $499 for the 32GB model, $599 for the 64GB model and a whopping $699 for the 128GB model.
