Apple It's one of those days again: Apple held a product announcement today, announcing several new products. The most important of which was rumoured about for a long time now: a smaller iPad. It's called the iPad mini, and has the potential to become the best-selling iPad - and thus, the best selling tablet.

Poor Resolution

It's not true to say that the reason the iPad mini got crap resolution is because the OS doesn't support it.

As other comments here have stated, it does just fine, it's just that iOS devs didn't have to support other resolutions, so they didn't.

That doesn't mean that the iPad mini had to be stuck with 1024x768. It could have been 1280x960 for example, and still maintained the same aspect ratio.

Will have to see what it's like in real life, but I think that it's definitely going to be a come-down after Apple's recent displays.
