Does an iPad Mini add up, Retina style?

Apple's iPad Mini is the rumor that refuses to die, with several high-profile sites lending their support to speculation that a "tweener" iOS tablet is indeed in the pipeline.

Retina MacBook Pro apps expose full resolution

When Apple introduced the Retina MacBook Pro, the logic behind the increase in resolution was the same as with the iPhone 4 and 4S. The user interface would remain the same, with graphical elements instead appearing crisper and sharper. While there are a few options to dabble with in the Display settings, Apple doesn’t allow users to expose the full 2880x1800 resolution for increased real estate.
