Apple Store had them in stock, and yes, the text is way more readable than on the original mini. These are sweet.

Actually, they didn't have them available for retail sales. What I had to do was order online and then specify in store pickup, then wait 10 minutes and they brought them out to me. Didn't even have display units available in store yet. They are doing it this way because of limited supply.

On the better screen, I have a test I run using 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' a comic book in Kindle format (you can download a free sample from the Amazon Kindle Store). The second page of graphic art is absolutely unreadable on the version 1 iPad Mini because the page was originally spread out over two comic book pages.
Text is still small on the Retina Mini, but no problem reading it!

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

Well I just downloaded that comic and even my 40yr old eyes can't read it, so will be nice to see comparison 1st hand when I finally get it. Has been 5 days now so after weekend, I should get tracking number.

PS I'm impressed with the Kindle way of handling the comics, ie; touching the first window and then swiping through each of them until it's end of the page. Neat 😊
