We finally got our hands on the second generation iPad Mini which is also known as the iPad Mini with Retina Display and here is our unboxing which also features the first gen iPad mini and the all new iPad Air alongside for a quick comparison. Find the video below. The iPad mini 2 and the iPad Air went on sale in India on December 7. The iPad mini with Retina Display starts from Rs.28,900 for the base 16GB WiFi only version and the version we are unboxing is the 32GB WiFi+Cellular version which costs Rs.44900. The mini uses a nano SIM card just like the iPad Air and the iPhone 5s and 5c. For the first time there is a 128GB version too on sale costing a massive 49,900 for the WiFi only version and Rs.58,900 for the WiFi+ Cellular version.
The main story about this new iPad mini is the Retina Display with a screen resolution of 2048×1536 pixels with 326 ppi on a 7.9 inch display which is damn impressive. Also there are no compromises in terms of the internal specifications which is almost identical to the full size iPad Air featuring an Apple A7 64-bit chip and a M7 co-processor. Apple is selling this iPad mini at a premium and the price difference between the new Mini Retina and the iPad Air is about Rs.7000 in India which forces your into a state of dilemma as to which iPad model one should get.
