The iPad mini 2 has arrived and, as with most of Apple’s high-profile devices, does not fall short in features and performance.

Officially announced Tuesday in the US, the new iPad mini 2 offers a Retina display just like the concurrently launched iPad Air. While similar in outward appearance to the original mini, the 7.9-inch tablet refresh has increased the resolution to 2,048×1,536, up from 1,024×768, and touts a 64-bit A7 processor for faster performance.

When Acer released the Iconia W3 not long ago, it was met positively.
