Now that Apple has unexpectedly launched the Retina iPad mini, we’ve finally got a chance to compare the two iPads.
The most interesting thing about the new iPads this year, is that in terms of specifications they’re exactly the same, expect for the screen size of course and slower clock speed of Retina iPad mini’s A7 chip.
The iPad Air is not only thinner and lighter than its predecessor, it is also smaller as Apple has managed to reduce the bezels in portrait mode. Meanwhile, to accommodate the high resolution Retina Display, iPad mini 2 is now marginally thicker than the original iPad mini, and as thick as the iPad Air.
I thought you also might want to figure out what’s the difference in the size of the two iPads. So here are the photos comparing the Retina iPad mini and iPad Air.
I will publish my first impressions of the Retina iPad mini shortly so stay tuned. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
