Apple announces retina iPad mini, starting at $399

Apple has just announced a retina iPad mini which will push the same amount of pixels as its older sibling, the iPad Air. It will also feature the same 10 hours of battery life as well.

The new iPad mini with retina display will feature the same exact 2048x1536 resolution that the standard size retina iPad Air features. The iPad mini with retina display will replace the current iPad mini pricing and start at $399. The current generation iPad mini will remain on shelves but drop $100 down to $299 for the base 16GB WiFi only model.

The retina iPad mini will be available starting on November 1.
