A recent report from The Wall The Wall Street Journal claims that the highly-anticipated budget tablet will feature a retina display from Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. (LON:BC94) (KRX:005930). Production for the product is reported to start during the fourth quarter of this year.

(LON:BC94) (KRX:005930) would better fit their needs. PC Mag adds,”Contrary to what some Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) watchers have indicated, the report claims that the new Retina version of the iPad mini will retain its 7.9-inch frame and 7.2-millimeter thinness.
