Bloomberg: Retina iPad Mini arriving this year

Following a number of reports suggesting a retina iPad Mini (AAPL) won't launch until 2014, a source tells Bloomberg the tablet is set to launch in calendar Q4, along with the widely-expected thinner/lighter 5th-gen iPad.

Bloomberg also joins AllThingsD in reporting the next iPhone will be shown off at a Sep. 10 event.

The WSJ recently reported "mass production" of a retina iPad Mini will start in Q4.

Google recently began selling a new Nexus 7 sporting a 1920x1200 display to good reviews. Amazon will reportedly roll out high-res Kindle Fires this fall. Samsung's newly-launched Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 and Galaxy Note 8.0 only have 1280x800 displays.

    Do they keep the current iPad mini at a lower price point?
    That will be an interesting question to beat Android volume.

    LOL - my stuff is obsolete! I am right now typing using an IPad II 32 GB. i like it though but it won't ever replace my Air!


    Seems to me the rally has begun and the 500 mark is the next target.

    AAPL approaching my short term target of $480.00 ..... $500.00 or higher a share is dependent on what new products they deliver. I know alot people who would love an iPad Mini with a Retina display !

    Remember when there used to be 100 comments on any AAPL article?

    It is odd that even the slightest Apple issue gets a lot of press, but Android often gets a free pass. Serious stability issues on the Nexus 7 aren't being reported, but that is what people expect from Android, so I guess it isn't news.

    If you watch the video and imagine how the press would handle this on an Apple product, it could get humorous. CNBC would dedicate an hour of programming to the bug; the WSJ would show clips of Jobs' funeral and interview tech CEOs on why Apple is now doomed; and the survey companies that Samsung hires to say they have awesome market share (while Samsung won't release the actual numbers) would point out that Apple only commands 10% of the tablet market share (even though 84% of tablet web traffic is iPad driven).

    The sum of iconic brand, huge cash, low p/e and heavyweight R and D should be enough to quell the recent poor mouthing of AAPL.

    Samsung admits it pays students to post false reviews on other I phones, Samsungs Chairman of the Board is a convicted felon, Samsung steals its technology. So why would any American buy a cheap knock off plastic Korean phone when we already subsidize Samsung by defending its homeland from N Korea?

    Samsung isn't the only Sorth Korean company to steal technology and copy. The Sorth Korean auto manufacturers have been doing it for years. They don't even try to hide it. To make matters worse they find ways to keep North American produced vehicles out of their country. Recently Obama gave them a small slap on the wrist for that but it will do no appreciable good.


    It's time for us to insist on fair trade with all our trading partners. We can't afford not to.
