Here we go again with B S supply chain restriction ass analyst predictions.  File these and all others like these in the round file cabinet on the floor.

Finally, you read a claim that Apple can't make production yields (despite no proof) but then jumped to some oddball claim that it's a problem with iOS. WTF?!

Its funny too that google gets not one thin dime from the Kindle Fire HD because amazon forked the os lol.

This is what is so asinine. I'm not sure why AI continues to damage their reputation by printing this stuff. In all likely hood they have 5 million of whatever already packaged for delivery, probably more if it is a 64 bit solution.

Beyond that there is never any explanation as to why there would be a limit on screen supply. If new technology is expected say so, but it is pretty obvious from what the rest of the industry delivers that screens for the most part aren't a problem.

Question for experienced iPad users...

 

I will buy an iPad Mini when the new ones come out.  If I almost never use it for videos or reading books would it really be a serious advantage for me to have a Retina display?  When I look at that MacBooks and iPads to compare Retina vs. Non-Retina I don't seem to notice a big difference.

 

Any opinions?

What is nice here is that iPad defined that for me in a moment and thus I actually learnt something on AI. Not that I will every squeeze that word into daily conversation.

Amazon has an interesting engineering department, they certainly have a management team capable of squeezing interesting things out of that department.

Beyond that the idea that Apples HARDWARE is universally better than everybody else's is bogus. Apple takes good hardware and makes it wonderful via the OS.

And the only reason i can think of for apple to have yield problem on the retina screens is if they went to a cutting edge tech, like IGZO.

Even then, that is IGZO comes tomorrow, Apple would not launch unless they had their ducks in a row. Every using I've seen over the last year indicates a steady drive at Apple to make IGZO happen at Apple. --- Interesting iPad is capitalizing IGZO for me ---

I see the first iPad Mini as a proof of concept, they will now throw their weight behind a full up machine due to confidence sales inspire.

YES!

I went from an original iPad to an ipad3 and the jump in resolution was very noticeable. The enhanced resolution impacts every iPad app you use on the platform. Web browsing is just one example of where retina is leveraged.

I'm not sure what you are comparing here but the differences are dramatic. Maybe you need to put glasses on. I'm not trying to be an ass here as I'm well past 50, but even with out my glasses there is a very noticeable improvement in screen quality.

IMO iOS 7 requires retina display.

I know. Sigh. But it annoys me when people say the mini won't have retina, doesn't need it and is still the best tablet without it. Because that's bunk. And they obviously haven't used a mini running iOS 7.

Thanks for the opinion Wiz.  I also wear glasses and perhaps that is a good reason to get the clearest picture possible.

That is the best argument I've read regarding the iPad Mini going Retina tomorrow.

Hell, I don't even think the Mini needs retina... but I won't buy one until it has it.  :p
