ipad mini hires 479x640Now here is a rumor which might just put a smile on the faces of those who have yet to pick up an iPad mini, but intend to do so when it is equipped with a high-resolution display. Yes sir, what else could it be other than whispers of a high resolution iPad mini floating around? It seems that Apple will be taking the inevitable route of upgrading the pixel density of their iPad mini to Retina display specifications in order to stop being the butt of jokes around, and will be part of the tablet’s next generation line up.

These rumors hail from Taiwan-based Digitimes, who claimed that sources from the backlighting industry have been talking up a next generation iPad mini that will come with a higher resolution count, although it remains to be seen whether this 7.9-inch tablet will eventually sport a screen that is similar to existing Retina offerings. We could possibly be looking at (pardon the pun) a pixel count of 2,048 by 1,536, which would mean that it will eventually have a higher pixel density compared to the standard iPad’s 264 ppi, courtesy of its screen size. Do you think a Retina display iPad mini will sell like hot cakes?
