The new iPad Mini features a 7.9-inch Retina display with a 2048 x 1536 screen resolution. It also comes with an A7 processor that should result in a sharp increase in performance, as well as 10-hour battery life.

The original iPad mini will stay in stores and has been reduced to $299 for 16GB WiFi.
