iPad mini with Retina display supplies a third predicted demand warns IHS

The iPad Air versus iPad mini with Retina display shopping question could be decided by severe shortages of the smaller tablet, analysts predict, with suggestions that supplies of the new high-resolution display could amount to less than a third Apple will need to meet demand. "Production is still ramping up on the 7.9-inch Retina panel with low yield rates limiting production" according to supply chain diggers IHS, potentially leading to even bigger backlogs of orders than the original iPad mini faced when it launched last year.

IHS says 4K TVs are “transitional products” until AMOLED is widespread

If you're a fan of the ultra-gigantic and super-high-definition television environment that exists amongst the super-rich, then you'll be glad to know that more 4G resolution televisions are on the way!
