Apple iPad Mini 2 Vs Apple iPad 5: To Include or Not to Include Retina Display

ipad-mini-21

Should Apple’s iPad Mini 2 comprise Retina Display or not? The decision seems to have rattled the firm. As per a latest buzz in the rumor mill, the Cupertino Calif.-based firm still has to settle on whether to include Retina Display in its upcoming next-gen 7.9-inch iPad or not. However, if Apple plans on to implement a Retina screen, we won’t see the iPad Mini 2 hit the shelves before the end of the fourth quarter. Considering the current iPad’s low 1024 x 768 resolution, a delay to instill the Retina screen could lead to no problem. Apparently, Apple has decided to design the iPad Mini 2 as a bezel-less device. Yet another rumor surrounding Apple indicates towards another iPad in the making, the iPad 5. The iPad 5 is expected to roll out with a 9.7-inch display, a Retina screen, slimmer bezel, a single LED tube (as opposed to [+more]

Looks like innovation’s only going to get you so far – the world’s most innovative company seems to be losing its sheen with every passing month. But the only way out, according to analysts, could be the release of the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 soon. While rumors about the iWatch and iPhone 6 are doing the rounds, bringing out the tablets is the only way to fend off increasing competition from Android, they say. On the positive front, yes, Apple still does enjoy the lead in the tablet market. And to maintain this lead, the company will do well to focus on bringing out truly spectacular tablets. We don’t quite expect anything flamboyant in the form of the iPhone 6 that could possibly bring Samsung down, even if iOS 7 turns out to be radically different from the current version of the iOS. Of course, analysts maintain that [+more]

ipad_vs_surface_screen_640x360

The Apple iPad may be enjoying a comfortable lead in the tablet market, but we’ve just found a key reason for Apple to start worrying about losing to its rivals like the Microsoft Surface, Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 and the Sony Xperia Z tablets. The Surface Pro, even though is a terrific piece of technology, hasn’t quite managed to make a mark yet, but there’s a key strength that it has against the iPad, as do its other competitors – that of multitasking. Even though there’s no doubting the robustness and smoothness of the iOS experience, there’s really no way to run numerous apps on the iPad efficiently. On the other hand, Microsoft has put in the Snap View feature in its tablet, which lets users split the screen between two apps in a 70:30 ratio – this could soon turn into 50:50 with Windows Blue. The Galaxy Note 8.0 [+more]
