WJS says iPad mini will have retina display

...and possibly come in multiple colors. If this turns out to be true I think it will be a HUGE winner for Apple. I wonder if this was a controlled leak by Apple to the WSJ to counter some of the no-retina rumors. Story doesn't mention a release date but I don't get why Apple would leak something to the WSJ now if we're not getting a retina mini until next year. And I can't see Apple bypassing a holiday quarter when they rack up most of their sales.


Apple is working with suppliers in Asia on its next iPad mini with a high-resolution "retina" display, unlike the current iPad mini that comes with a lower-resolution screen, the people said. The size of the new tablet will likely be the same as the current 7.9-inch model, which was released in November last year. Apple has also been contemplating multiple color back covers for the new tablet, they said.
