When I first saw it I thought the pricing of the mini retina was insane! Why would they do that? However, looking at it again, it makes sense. It's the same device as the iPad Air. THE SAME THING! Except it's smaller. That is a great feat, something a lot of people have overlooked. Before when the mini came out, the specs were not the same as the newer iPad and the pricing was a little steep. Now you can get the new iPad Air for $100 bucks cheaper if you get the mini instead. I love my current mini, and would be glad to get the Retina.
A side note.....
Yes Apple offered the older mini at $30 cheaper. But that is Apple pricing. Most stores already offered the device at $299. This means they can go even cheaper as well! I think that is worth noting.

Being an Apple follower... the price point is highly disappointing for the Retina Mini. Ridiculous when compared to the Nexus 7 2013.
I was waiting for Apple to release mini cuz I thought this is gonna be a good cost effective upgrade. Clearly I was wrong. Why can't apple introduce low cost tablets... and by low cost, I don't mean a 5C type crap device selling for 400$+! (how the f**k is that a low cost device!!) They put such cheap plastic backs on the 5C.
I guess for phones.. I'll stick to Apple... but I'm gonna go for the Nexus 7 LTE in the tablet section... don't care id it has a smaller screen... the dollar to performance ratio is higher than that of the Mini.

No-one's forcing you to buy it.
You gets what ye pays for.
If you don't want to spend much, you're not gunna get much.
Why should Apple gear their pricing to suit your budget ?
It's not too expensive - it's just too expensive for you.
Now go play with your iPad-wannabe.

Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n); dual channel (2.4GHz and 5GHz) and MIMO
Bluetooth 4.0 technology
UMTS/HSPA/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz); GSM/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
CDMA EV-DO Rev. A and Rev. B (800, 1900 MHz)
LTE (Bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 13, 17, 18, 19, 20, 25, 26)1
How do you figure? There is no 1700/2100 on any of the iPads. The new iPhones do with the 5C and 5S but never on the iPad. The LTE does and 3G does only in the refraimed areas for T-Mobile but I'm not sure how you see that 1700/2100 (AWS) works for 3/4G or HDSPA+
