Bloomberg: Retina iPad Mini arriving this year

|By:, SA News Editor

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.
