iPad mini Retina: Four Months On

iPad mini Retina: Four Months On

The iPad mini with Retina display addressed a lot of the complaints iOS tablet users had of its first-gen predecessor. No longer did a smaller tablet mean lesser screen resolution or a weaker processor, two of the key criticisms, and while the iPad Air undoubtedly improved Apple's full-sized slate, many suggested that the still-more-affordable mini version had become the obvious choice for new tableteers. Four months in, though, has the shine of the Retina iPad mini faded?

Verizon Nexus 7 nearly here: coming to do tablet battle

This week a set of photos shows the Verizon 4G LTE certified version of the ASUS-made Nexus 7 from Google appearing in the flesh. This is after months of the device being in limbo after having been suggested to work with every kind of 4G LTE in the country at launch. Verizon, it would seem, has just now gotten to the point where they'll be selling the device on their own. Google, it would seem, will not be selling the device directly.

Why Apple’s 2013 promises bigger things for 2014

Why Apple’s 2013 promises bigger things for 2014

Apple had a somewhat strong year in 2013. The company showed off the iPad Air, unveiled a new iPad mini with a Retina display, and its upcoming Mac Pro might just be the most impressive desktop the company has ever launched. And as its revenue showed during the period, customers seemed to like what the company had to offer.

But I have a bit of a different take on the last year. While Apple had a broad launch lineup in 2013, nothing beyond the Mac Pro was truly “groundbreaking.” And by the look of things, that was intentional. That’s right – 2013 is designed to be the precursor for what promises to be a major 2014.

iPad Pro 12.9-inch display tipped for early 2014

It's not been a week since the Retina iPad mini hit shelves in the USA and rumors of the next-generation iPad Pro have surfaced. This comes soon after the in-store availability of the device known as the iPad Air, a name which suggests too that a "Pro" model may be in the works. This larger device would have a display to match its abilities as well: 12.9-inches by rumor's reckoning.

You'll find a rather familiar set of bits inside the iPad mini with Retina display this week from the likes of iFixit. The folks notoriously attached to the term "teardown" have found this machine to work with a repairability rating of 2 out of 10 - not so fantastic - but the whole organization of this device's innards are fantastically simple nonetheless. Inside you'll find a variety of parts from brands like Toshiba, NXP, and Elpida too.

iPad Air Review

iPad Air Review

Had the iPad lost its way? Not as a range, certainly; over the last twelve months, the iPad mini has been the darling of the tablet scene, coupling affordability with convenience and build quality. The full-sized, 9.7-inch iPad has arguably been sidelined since its smaller sibling's arrival, but no more as of the iPad Air. Now with a design that echoes the wow-factor of the original iPad, and the performance to match, the iPad Air narrows the gap between it and the iPad mini, paring away the compromises as it goes. The best tablet Apple has made? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
