To be retina (about 256 dpi), it would have to be 1600x1200.
Unfortunatly if its a 163dpi LCD would be sub par considering that was the starndard 7 inch lcd 160dpi screens of 2 years ago on andorid tablets and Amazons Kindle fire hd 7 "= 225DPI Google nexus 7" = 240dpi, kobo arc = 215 dpi Nook HD = 243 DPi giving them higher resolution screens as well as them having high quality screens. a 163 dpi 7 inch lcd screen would resemble the low quality android screens of old and in my opinion would be a step back. i dont think the mini needs to be "retina display" but it should have at least the 215 DPI density that the ARC has. of course some will buy it because of the apple "magic"
