The new iPad mini 2 (or iPad mini with Retina display, if you want to
give it Apple's elongated title) is the next step in the smaller tablet
wars - and with Google and Amazon stepping up their respective games,
the Cupertino brand needed something that hit back with strength.
However, even with that landscape, we were still surprised when Apple
announced the iPad mini 2 on stage, coming with things like the A7 chip
under the hood and a 128GB iteration to satisfy those that crave a lot
of HD action.
