iPad mini with Retina Display hitting resellers in the UK, 4G LTE models still look scarce

When the iPad mini with Retina Display first launched, here in the UK there was no initial reseller availability – as indicated on the GSX portal. It was either Apple or don't get one, but thankfully that seems to have changed with several major retailers now offering Apple's latest. However, if...

Some Apple Stores now allowing walk-in purchasing of iPad mini with Retina display

It appears that Apple is now allowing walk-in customers purchase the iPad mini with Retina display. Since last week's odd soft launch, customers could only get a new iPad mini in an Apple Store if they ordered it online and then opted for Personal Pickup due to supply constraints. But at least...

iPad mini with Retina display review

Complete review of Apple's new Retina-display equipped, 64-bit, 7.9-inch tablet In 2012 Apple took the year-old 9.7-inch iPad 2, condensed it down to 7.9 inches, and re-launched it as the new iPad mini. Every inch an iPad, yet one of stark contrasts - a design from the future wrapped around...

Retina iPad mini: How good is it for comic book reading?

I don't know how big the intersection is between gadget nerds and comic book nerds, but based on how many questions we've gotten about how legible and enjoyable comics are on the new Retina iPad mini, I'm guessing it's pretty close to Galactus big. The iPad Air, thanks to its large, 9.7-inch...

Do you see image retention on your Retina iPad mini? [Poll]

Do you see image retention on your Retina iPad mini? Much has been said about the – still frankly pretty darn impressive – display on the Retina iPad mini. Narrow color gamuts are clear to see when you sit the mini next to the iPad Air but what about this image retention issue; are you seeing it...
Retina iPad mini iSight and FaceTime HD camera tests

Retina iPad mini iSight and FaceTime HD camera tests

The iSight camera in the Retina mini remains unchanged from last year's original. It's still the same 5 megapixel, backside illuminated (BSI), five-element, hybrid IR file red, and f/2.4 aperture. What has changed is the Apple A7 processor inside, and the image signal processor (ISP) inside it....

Retina iPad mini display: How icons, text, and comics compare

The Retina iPad mini has an LED-backlit LCD screen with in-plane switching (IPS) for a wide viewing angle. It also has a 2048x1536 display crammed down to 326ppi to fit into a 7.9-inch screen. That's the same pixel count as the iPad Air, the same density as the iPhone 5s, and the same screen...
Retina iPad mini display: High density, narrow color-gamut, possible image retention

Retina iPad mini display: High density, narrow color-gamut, possible image retention

The Retina iPad mini promises all the pixels of the iPad Air at the density of the iPhone 5s. That's 2048x1536 at 326ppi. If that sounds like a screen-dream come true, in many ways it is. Unfortunately, the Retina iPad mini only provides the same, narrower color gamut of the original iPad mini....

Are you an iPad photographer and proud of it? [Poll]

Are you an iPad photographer and proud of it? It's a discussion we've had many, many times before; using your iPad – or any other tablet for that matter – as a camera. Some love it, some hate it, some ridicule it and others just don't care, but it's a subject most of us have an opinion on. We...

Using a keyboard with your iPad? Here are the shortcuts you need to know!

While Apple did a great job with the virtual software keyboard for the iPad, for some people nothing replaces the productivity of pounding on a real, physical, hardware keyboard. Luckily, you can connect a variety of Bluetooth keyboards to achieve just that, and when you do, some traditional...

Retina iPad mini: Silver vs. space gray gallery

While the new Retina iPad mini certainly looks a lot like last year's original, Apple has switched out the old, scratch and chip-prone slate gray color for an all new, all-the-more resilient, space gray finish. It also matches the space gray options for the iPhone 5s and iPad Air, if that sort of...

Family Portrait: The iPad Air and Retina iPad mini

One is 9.7-inches, the other is 7.9-inches. That, primarily, is the difference between the iPad Air and the brand new iPad mini with Retina Display. Both pack the A7 chip, the M7 motion co-processor and of course, that glorious 2048x1536 resolution Retina Display. And, since the redesign of the...

On Apple's weird iPad mini with Retina Display rollout

Let's be honest: Apple's rollout of the new iPad mini with Retina Display has been just plain weird. It caught many of us by surprise, but Apple isn't being coy for the reason for the soft launch - it's pretty clear they don't have the supply to meet demand. The iPad mini with Retina Display...
