    At this point wait. In two weeks we will see what the new one has to offer and if its not a major upgrade from the 1 then get the first gen which will then be cheaper

    No. The iPad Mini 2 hasn't even been announced by Apple yet.

    Looks like no Mini 2. Unless I'm mistaken and more new devices will be out later, after the iPhone 5s/5c launch, and much closer to the holidays...

    Today's Apple announcement was only for the new iPhones. I believe Apple will have a separate announcement for the new iPads some time in October, in time for the holiday season.

    Ah, yes. Sorry. After I posted this I googled the question and came up with a similar answer. October seems to be the month for the new iPads.

    I guess it's easy to spot the noobs amongst the crowd. ;-)

    Hey, no worries there. Everyone on here was a noob at one point. Welcome to iMore, btw. Hope you enjoy the community.

    Thanks. Switching from Android to Apple is a whole new experience and I'm quite enjoying it here. Also, looking forward to (hopefully!) ordering the 5s on the 20th from my carrier for in-store pick-up. My first iPhone!

    The last rumor I heard about the iPad mini with retina display is that they were having some sort of problems adjusting the screen, ever since then there hasn't been any hints that point towards a soon release of the next iPad mini. I own a mini and I can't find a single bad thing about it and use it for pretty much everything since its so light and easy to carry. It's the best way to get what iOS has to offer, you get a big enough screen considering the 4" display on the iPhone and I make emphasis on how lightweight it is compared to the bigger iPad. Besides, it's the cheapest way to get your hands on an apple product, I couldn't wait and got a 16 GB model and haven't regret it so far.

    Having had an ipad mini I can say the retina display isn't a critical need for the tablet, a boost in processor, battery size (life) are a bigger benefit on a smaller screened device. I found it the right size to have on hand and use.

    Had a mini myself, and while the retina display isn't a dealbreaker for me...it's keeping me from buying a new one over waiting for the October or so iPadMini2 release. For reading purposes, the retina display is 100% clearer and easier on the eyes. If the iPadMini2 has retina, an iPad4 processor and a tad better battery life I'll be the first in line to snag one!

    I'm contemplating purchasing a second iPad for use strictly as a digital photo frame. I'm currently using an HP TouchPad as a frame. I'm undecided on if I should go for the mini or the full fledged sized iPad. I'd opt for the 16GB version since all I'd put on it are photos.

    Thoughts?

    If that's all you would use it for then I would look for a refurbished iPad two. It would probably be your cheapest option.

    I looked on Apple's website and the 16GB refurbished mini would be cheaper. I'm wondering if it'd even be a wise idea to use the mini for strictly a digital frame, due to the size would the quality of the pictures be any different than if they were on a full fledged iPad? I know the mini and the iPad 2's don't have the retina display so that'll effect picture quality but I'm ok with this.

    Picture quality would be about the same, just smaller on the mini.

    this.

    as much as I love my Mini, I'd wait as it's not that much longer and it would save buyer's remorse if another does come out (or is announced) this month.

    Usually $50. Can probably get a refurb for about $100 off.
