Shortages expected for iPad mini with retina display

If you've been counting the days until you can get your hands on the new Apple iPad mini with Retina display, the tablet has officially launched. The iPad mini with the Retina Display brings the same resolution from the 9.7-inch iPad (2048x1536) to a smaller 7.9-inch device.
 
We already know all the hardware features of the iPad mini with Retina display. The tablet will use an Apple A7 processor featuring a 64-bit desktop-class architecture. All versions of the tablet will feature integrated Wi-Fi with versions offering LTE 4G connectivity available for $130 extra.
 
“The response to iPad Air has been incredible, and we’re excited for customers to experience the new iPad mini with Retina display,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing. “We think customers will love both of these thin, light, powerful new iPads, and we’re working hard to get as many as we can in the hands of our customers.”

With Apple's comment that it is "working hard" to get the new iPad mini into the hands of customers, you can bet there will be a shortage of this tablet early on. The basic Wi-Fi version of the iPad mini with Retina display and 16 GB of storage will sell for $399, a 32 GB version sells for $499, and a 64 GB version sells for $599. People needing even more storage can get a 128 GB version for $699.
 
Versions of the iPad mini with Retina display featuring integrated LTE connectivity start at $529 for 16 GB of storage and go up to $829 for 128 GB of storage. With the new iPad mini with Retina display now available, the original iPad mini can be purchased for $299 with 16 GB of storage.

Victory? No, not at all. That isn't the point. The point is, as I mentioned several times, you have no clue what you are talking about. I knew that all along, the only thing that changed here is you proved it.

I point out numerous things that either aren't on Android or are getting staggered releases. You point out one inconsistency, which itself was a staggered release at the time, and use that one thing to try and debunk the point while ignoring/dodging every other app and game I mentioned.

...

You're like the guy that uses the other person's spelling error to win an argument.

Its weird that you're so opposed to this one point that even Android users who are also mobile developers readily accept as reality on the platform.

Fine, whatever makes you feel good.

And again, if the difference in app libraries don't matter to you, that's totally cool.

Denial of the difference is the only thing I think is strange.

dude, it's not about the one mistake it's about the fact that you're wrong. You are wrong that mistake its just something that proves it. You. Are. Wrong. Get it?
