On Friday, the entire nation of China learns that, no, we weren't kidding... the iPad Mini DOES NOT have a retina display :eek:

If Apple never designed their portables with Retina Display nobody would've cared. It's not like all their LCD laden products sucked before Retina came out. :p

Ugh, finally, the cellular version iPad is on sale in China!
Commies don't matter to them, all Apple wants is their money.

Not every Apple customer in China is Chinese Communist Party member.
Not every Apple customer in California is left-wing socialist.

Right. It really is just in comparison to the awesomeness that is Retina that the Mini's screen looks bad.

You're right, they should have stuck with the 336 x 240 LCD from the Newton and no one would have ever known any better.

Or not, my $199 Nexus7 has a higher resolution display than the $329 iPad Mini.

Thanks for missing the point.
