Is This The iPad mini 2 with Retina Display?
If these purportedly leaked images are indeed accurate, then you are looking at the second generation iPad mini with Retina display.
Suspect as always, these pics come to us courtesy of a Chinese Internet forum. As you might have expected, these are not formally sanctioned images for release by Apple or its manufacturing partners in the far east.
Having first appeared on Weiphone, we are told that the pics showcase the rear casing of the iPad mini 2.
The images show a device with a similar design as the current iPad Mini, but a little thicker, presumably to make room for a larger battery to power a high-resolution Retina display.
While it seems dubious that Apple would actually strive to make the iPad mini 2 thicker for the sake of accommodating the improved display, stranger things have happened.
As we get closer to the anticipated springtime launch window for the next-generation iPad mini, there's a good chance that more leaked product images will find their way to our retinas, regardless of how legitimate they may or may not actually be.

Might just want to call it the 'new iPad mini'"You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not"

Really! Are they still going to stick with the retina display, when all other companies already surpassed the retina display.

I don't think this is the iPad mini 2. It looks too much like the original, my guess, someone took off the back, and substituted a blue apple loo and lettering. Just like I have a transparent back for my iPhone 4S.

if it's as thick as it looks in that first picture, I'm out. I want retina on the mini -- with retina and 4G that might be my perfect mobile device -- but not if it's as thick and heavy as a dictionary.

I doubt Apple would go thick on the new iPad Mini. They're all about getting thinner and lighter most of the time, so I really think the images are fake. The pictures make it look thicker than iPad 3 & 4 which doesn't make sense since both of them have retina displays but are both really thin.

Stranger things have happened than Apple making a thicker product?

I'm confused, how can we tell if it's a retina display iPad mini 2 when the picture only shows the iPad's back cover?

Now I'm more confused...If you don't know how to read, how did you write a comment?
And now even more confused! If you don't know how to read and/or were to lazy to read a tiny short article, how did you have the energy to find someone to type up a comment for u?El Zurdo

The Nexus 10 has a 300 ppi to the ipads 264 not sure about any others. also the 15" MB pro w/retina display i believe has a 220 ppi. so by apples standard anything with 220ppi or higher is retina. Their are about 10 tablets with a higher ppi then 220.
