“We’ve just taken our first in-person look at Apple’s new iPad mini with Retina display, and our first impression is that it’s an iterative change from last year — but sometimes that’s all it takes to make a great product,” Dieter Bohn reports for The Verge.
“Although it doesn’t venture far afield from what we expected, Apple has always focused at least as much on precise execution as it has on anything else — and the result of that focus is a small-sized tablet that more than holds its own against increasingly earnest competition,” Bohn reports. “The same 7.9-inch display now features four times the pixels, a full 2048 x 1536 resolution, which makes text sharp and readable. Just as importantly, it makes iOS 7 look much better than it does on the original iPad mini, which often feels a little out of place on lower resolutions.”
Bohn reports, “The overall build quality, fit, and finish on the new iPad mini is also better than any other tablet on the market — which probably explains its starting price, $399. Apple says it will be available later in November.”
