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?
