I suspect that the resolution of the new iPad Mini (or iPod HD) may be 16:9 at 1366 x 768. Using 1366 x 768 would keep down the production cost of the display, but also give the iPad Mini a better resolution than any of the 7" tablets (topping out at 1280 x 720 pixels).

1366 x 768 could still run non-retina iPad apps at 1024 x 768 with letterboxing. Those apps could even be easily optimized for the new 1366 x 768 resolution, similar to how iPhone 4/4S apps are being optimized for the iPhone 5/ iPod5.

Lastly, iPhone 5/iPod5 apps optimized for 1136 x 640 would still look great scaled up to 1366 x 768 on the 7.85" screen.
