Leaked photos allegedly show Retina display Apple iPad mini 2 with color options

Leaked pictures from a Chinese forum show what is allegedly the next version of the Apple iPad mini and the blue colored Apple logo on back could indicate that Apple plans on offering a selection of different colors similar to the colors used for the 5th generation Apple iPod Touch; some of the pictures show a thicker tablet which could mean that it will be equipped with a Retina display...

Why would Apple want to sale a $349 mini with the same resolution as it's big brother at $499? Haven't you looked at the stock prices lately? I see it between $400 to $500 dollars just because their hurting the 9.7" model at the $329 starting price.

Sad thing is I was serious :( If the rumors are true and having "retina" display increases apples costs by 30%, expect the cost of an entry level mini to be at least $450

I would def. buy an iPad Mini if it had a Retina display at the same price with a A6X chip. This would be the first thing I would buy from Apple since 2006 (iPod Classic 30GB).

Only if iOS7 was a total rebuild, and then it'd still be a maybe.

As long as people are willing to overspend Apple will continue to make up crazy prices. The iPad mini should be no more than $249 imho.

even $299 would be acceptable being that it's so well made but it would also have to be more than a recycled iPad 2 which it isn't.

agree hardware and fluidity wise it will be awesome, just hope ios 7 is a huge improvement and not imo a small update like ios 6...for me i want to be able to set my own default apps and just drag and drop files instead of having to sync everything...for me those 2 are the most important

I'm with u on that. After the ribbing apples taken this past year, it should b a big update. I think it will b

I have a feeling Apple would never have a blue logo like that. It just doesn't look right.

This will be a good compliment to my Note 2....hope its well within the $329 range
