I had a chance to play with a mini for about 15 minutes today. It is a really nice device. It's so much lighter and thinner than the full-size iPad that I wouldn't be surprised if it soon becomes Apple's most popular model.

When placed side-by-side with the iPad 4 it becomes clear that the screen is not as sharp, but its pixelation is really not obvious at a normal viewing distance. You have to look for it with your nose pressed up against the glass, staring at the ascenders of individual letters. To worried readers: text rendered very well. I don't think people are going to notice or care about the ppi. Rather, the people around me were impressed with the screen. That being so, I wouldn't bet on seeing a retina display in a mini before 2014.

A lot of people are going to put the mini on their Christmas lists this year.
