The little known A8 processor is expected to bring 64 bit computing strategy to the next level and could exceed Intel’s Core i5 processors in performance. We could see a slimmer iPad Mini Retina, perhaps about the same size and weight as the original iPad Mini. The Mini Retina slow sales has been blamed on I being slightly larger and heavier than the first-gen Mini because of the Retina display. Price has also been a factor. The entry Retina model was priced at $399 against the first-gen Mini’s $329. The large iPad will be targeted at professionals who have been demanding a better entertainment and productivity tool. Kuo again said the product likely won’t make it to the market until 2015.
